  1. CALPADS SENR ODS Process and the "Adult Age Students with Disabilities in Transition Status" Indicator

    The CALPADS SENR ODS Process needs to be adjust for field 1.34 "Adult Age Students with Disabilities in Transition Status" Indicator when students have an exit date in the Special Ed Exit date field (CSE.XD) during the current school year and the CALPADS SENR ODS file has "Y" for field 1.34. Currently the process is changing the "Y" to an "N" if the student has an exit date in the Special Ed Exit date field (CSE.XD) during the current school year.

  2. Auto create 113 CA Partnership Academy special program records based on Course Attendance

    Currently, we have a SQL script that generates a 113 CA Partnership Academy special program record for all students with Course Attendance in specified courses. It would be nice to be able to do this within Aeries rather than relying on a SQL script.

  3. Add LIP special program records automatically

    Currently, we have a SQL script that generates 301 LIP program records for all students enrolled in our Dual Immersion charter school and 305 LIP records for all EL students at all of our other schools. Then it adds an end date to the 305 LIP record when the student is RFEP'd. It would be nice if we could do this within Aeries instead of relying on a SQL script.

  4. CALPADS SENR and SPRG ODS Process for Multiple CDS codes

    Modify the CALPADS SENR and SPRG ODS process to allow uploading multiple schools with different CDS codes within one Aeries database. This would help Charter schools and COEs.

  5. Add SELA ODS language to LAC table/Language Assessment page

    Add a field to Language Assessment page (LAC table) for SELA ODS language, next to EAC and EAD, so that we could see the language in the SELA ODS file for those students that have a discrepancy in language. The biggest reason for this is those students that we have marked EO, but are not EO in CALPADS. Right now we have to lookup each student in CALPADS to find their language, even though it's in the SELA ODS extract.

  6. SINF Extract Filter date

    We used to have a date filter option (on the previous CALPADS extract page)

    Extract Only Data Changes:
    Include any changes from the Date: _____ until now.

    The challenge we are facing is that the SINF file continues to grow. We have gone from 9000 records in mid-September to now 13,500 records. The file will only continue to grow as we progress through the year.

    The time to process files in CALPADS is correlated to their size (number of records). So, the file will take longer and longer to process as the school year progresses.
    Most of that time will…

  7. Calpads History Tab

    Add a comment box and the option to not 'POST' under the Actions column on the new CALPADS History tab. There have been incidents where we didn't use 1 of the files. For example, forgetting to exclude secondary enrollments when pulling an SPRG file gave me an Exit SPRG that I could post since the student in the file is secondarily enrolled.
    Defeats the purpose of keeping track when we are saying we posted something that we didn't.

  9. SINF - ODS reconciliation - CALPADS extract

    The 8.25.22 SENR ODS reconciliation extract process is pretty nice!

    It would be nice if something similar could be done for the SINF. Right now we have to extract the full history of changes (8,000+ records as of right now for us) and this will only continue to grow.

    Recent experience shows that even after the redesign, the larger the file .... THE LONGER CALPADS takes to process the file.

  10. do not report language fluency status

    In Other Options in CALAPDS Extracts can we have a table or dropdown where we can select what Language Fluency (STU.LF) code(s) not to report to CALPADS? For example, we have a 'Waiting on **' code for students who are new to our district but not new to CA. This allows our ELPAC team to know they do not need to be Initially ELPAC tested and we are waiting to confirm ELAS. In the past, it was not an issue because CALPADS would just overlook the TBD (which is the translation code) but with the CALPADS changes, it's rejecting the

  11. CALPADS STAS Issue With Charter School Option

    CALPADS STAS Extract - If a single database has multiple CDS Codes used for reporting - When a virtual school houses students tagged with a Reporting Home School, and CALPADS Extract School Options are set to a specific school, the STAS file may include other student attendance data from CDS Codes that were not selected in the extract.

  12. Don't make auto close enrollment E155 default

    Can you make this setting have the ability to be save if unchecked. There are many reasons why I don't want the system to auto close an enrollment due to SINR, SIRS and SOFF files that won't post if uploaded against a close enrollment. It's a pain to try and remember to uncheck it every time I go in to the extracts page..

  13. Ability to extract specific programs when pulling the SPRG

    In Powerschool, you have the ability to specify which Programs (PGM) you want to extract when running the SPRG. This way, if you are fixing or adding a whole bunch of 192 records, you can pull a SPRG extract for only the 192 records. This will make the file smaller (nicer for CALPADS) and will allow us to be more concentrated in our data reconciliation. You shouldn't have to pull all programs all the time...It's unnecessary and can result in errors.

    This is a CALPADS bug on their end. They DO intend to allow these special characters again, so we will not be changing our process at this time. If the 

    SINF update is needed, the customer either needs to make it manually in OM, or remove the offending characters from Aeries, but ALSO delete the CALPADS log entries for that change (the ones that contain the offending characters) so they won't be extracted also.

  15. CALPADS Data Validations

    Due to the new CALPADS Post Process Redevelopment, Data Validations are needed in Aeries before the file is submitted to CALPADS. A file can only post if it passes all input validations. If a file has 1 error, the entire file will reject. The file extract process will take care of the bulk of these file format validations, but cross-field and/or valid code combination errors may still occur. New validations need to be added to the default set for these types of errors.

  16. Connect SSID Lookup API feature from CALPADS

    When CALPADS launches their SSID Lookup API feature, please create a process where districts can have the option to search for potential transfer students and locate an SSID if it already exists in CALPADS.

  17. CALPADS Extracts to support accent marks.

    CALPADS Extracts sometimes do not recognize accent marks and instead will place a question mark where the letter was.

  18. Calpads Extract - State Course Code TCH.CB vs Course when a teacher's class setting changes to self contained

    It would be extremely helpful to allow the Calpads Extract to look at TCH.CB only when it is filled versus the Course - State Course Code Assigned. An example of when this is useful is the case when the school year has started and the classroom setting is forced to go into a self-contained setting vs departmentalized setting.

    For Fall 2 reporting and assignment monitor, this would allow us to adjust the course code to reflect the staff setting. In turn, this would allow for us to cut down on our Calpads error reporting.

  19. Exclude record from SDEM flag for STF records

    It would be ideal if there was a flag for excluding certain STF records from being pulled in SDEM files. We now have virtually all staff records in Aeries for ParentSquare, which we use for COVID daily screening, and we need a better way to exclude classified staff and sub teachers who have SEIDs. We have more of these than you might think, as many people got a SEID as a sub or they failed a credentialing program and now work in classified roles, like Instructional Assistants or Clerical staff. Right now we load all staff data from Escape (HRIS),…
