Who is this PR for?

districtwide admin

What problem does this PR fix?

Autocomplete freezes for a bit with ~10k students.

What does this PR do?

Mitigates it by adding a min-length, delaying the responsiveness, and adding a CSS scroll overflow. The real problem is rendering so many items in the list, but jQuery UI hooks don't let us simply change that. #2194 is the better path beyond short-term mitigations.


Which features or pages does this PR touch?

  • Core

Does this PR use tests to help verify we can deploy these changes quickly and confidently?

  • Manual testing made more sense here
