  1. Attendance Management-Periods listed for Notes are not matching calendar for date selected if a custom date is assigned

    When selecting to Mass Add a note for a date with a bell schedule that is different then the current date, the period selector under Notes is not adjusting to also look at the same bell schedule, it appears to only be looking at the bell schedule for the current date only. Adjust to display the same period list based on Bell Schedule of selected date.

  3. Contacts - Drag and Drop Sort Order

    Update the Contacts table so we can use drag and drop to change the contact sort order. Many of our students have their parents listed as contact #7 or #8 and we'd like to be able to drag them to the top of the list rather than having to manually update the sort order for each record.

  5. Revision Notes Review

    It would be nice if there was a weekly meeting to demonstrate revision notes or explain functionality changes (by region). This way all users have an opportunity to see how new features work or hear the benefits at the same time. Customers would benefit from a regularly scheduled Revision Notes meeting. Otherwise, Aeries team has to field individual tickets from individual customers (maybe more at one site) to explain individual features when they don't understand or when the knowledgebase has not been updated.

  6. Weekly Engagement Report error for Elem w/MST Daily ATT

    For Elem w/MST using Daily Attendance, on the Instructional Minutes Certification page, all the departmentalized sections appear for the teacher to certify. However on the Weekly Engagement Report, only the section taking Daily Attendance is visible. All the sections need to appear on the report.

  7. Ability to have both Standards Based Grading and Regular Grading in a K-8 School with period attendance.

    We have a K-8 School that uses period attendance. The k-3 students only have 1 teacher for period 0. They would need to enter grades using Standards based Grading. However the remainder of the school grades 4-8 use regular grading. We would like the ability to offer both in one school based on grade level. The only alternative right now would be splitting the school up into 2 different school sites, which is a logistical nightmare for both reports, integrations, etc.

    Hello! This feature has been added as of the 6/17/2021 Aeries version! Here is the revision note:
    School Options
    Options were added to allow doing both Elementary Standards Based Grading (SBG) and Secondary Grade Reporting (GRD) in the same school and to define the grades that each apply to. These options are for future use in Aeries.

  8. Weekly Instructional Minutes - Allow Long-Term Subs to certify

    Long-Term subs need the ability to certify the Weekly Instructional Minutes page since they are the ones instructing students at this time and tracking the participation in Attendance.

    Hello, this item has been completed in the 2/19/21 Out-Of-Band Update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    CALPADS Extracts

    1) A new setting was added under Other Options to force Parent/Guardian information (SINF/SIAD) to be extracted exclusively from STU.PG and STU.PED. The option is deselected by default. See CALPADS Extracts – Other Options Tab

    2) The Parent/Guardian Highest Education Level will always be pulled from STU.PED, even when processing Guardian information from the CON table. This will remain in place until CALPADS changes the SINF file layout in preparation for 22-23.

  10. Internships - Add CALPADS highlighting

    Please add CA State Code Highlighting to the Internships page, based on the Work-Based Learning Type selected so customers can see what fields are required when doing data entry.

    Hello, the idea (or bug) has been completed in the 3/19/21 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    The Period View option was added to allow toggling from a Timeline View to a Period View, and vice versa. While in Period View, the new Period Filter allows filtering out the desired periods to display on the board. All functionality is similar to the SMS Board, including button click and drag-and-drop.

  12. Email Signature option for Send Emails

    Allow for an email signature to be applied when using the Send Emails page. This would allow a teacher to easily identify themselves in the email, could provide office hours, and contact information.

  13. Add option for Inactive teachers in Weekly Instructional Minutes

    I know this was done by design because districts specifically requested that inactive teachers be suppressed from the drop-down lists, but this is affecting teachers that left mid-year now too! So now we can't audit the minutes certifications for any teacher that left mid-year. This is an audit issue! We need to access inactive teachers, so can it please be added as an option we can check on the Weekly Instructional Minutes page.

  14. Import Data - Add the ability to include Staff ID when importing TCH records

    When using the Import Data to Aeries to import TCH records, if Staff ID is included / mapped, the import skips the records. Importing TCH records is successful when the Staff ID field is not included.

  15. Teacher Attendance - allow sorting by the Additional Stu field columns configured on Portal Options.

    To help with Hybrid instruction, allow sorting by the Additional Stu field columns configured on Portal Options on the Teacher Attendance page.
    When taking attendance for a class of students who are mixed between on campus and distance learning, this will help group these sets of students to make attendance taking easier for teachers.

  16. CALPADS Work-Based Learning Extract (WBLR)

    A new extract is being created to submit data related to student internships, student-led enterprises, and virtual/simulated work-based learning. This Work-Based Learning (WBLR) file will be submitted and certified as part of the CALPADS End-of-Year (EOY) 1 submission. Work-based learning provides additional opportunities for students to demonstrate their preparedness for college/career through the College/Career Indicator (CCI) on the California School Dashboard.

    Hello, this idea/bug has been completed in the 11/06/20 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    CALPADS Extracts
    The new Work-Based Learning (WBLR) extract was added. The extract information is pulled from the recently updated Internships (ISP) table. The extract is located on the EOY tab. Refer to the documentation for more detailed information. See CALPADS Extract – EOY – Work-Based Learning (WBLR) and Internships.

  17. Update STU Code Descriptions to align with CALPADS

    The code descriptions for STU.SWR & STU.EOY need to be updated for the following codes: E450, E400, E140. The descriptions currently do not match the CALPADS definitions. Therefore we continue to have the clerks code elementary students with the 450 code, and the others are also used for the incorrect age of the student.

    We have updated our code table for ATT.RS to reflect the correct descriptions, but are unable to update the codes in STU.

    Hello, this idea/bug has been completed in the 11/03/20 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    Also, Fixed Code Description changed for Exit Code 450 to now display as: PreK Exit. Please note that this change to Fixed Codes for all the new descriptions works for all areas using Fixed Codes throughout the system.

  18. Flex SMS Board - Bring back the Group by Department display option

    When you view the SMS Board in Flex, the option to Group by Department is missing. It's a key tool for building complex schedules at a high school. Please add this feature to Flex.

    Hello, the idea (or bug) has been completed in the 7/20/21 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    Flex SMS Board – The Group by Department feature has been added to this board for both Timeline and Period View. Also, the current time marker (vertical red line) has been removed.

  19. Transcript - Allow User to Completely Remove Value in Average Mark Field

    When the Transcript Average Mark is unlinked or deleted the system will re-populate the field with the value in the Mark field if it is not linked to any other record, or with a recalculated value of the remaining records it is linked with. Customer would like to completely remove the average mark value in a record with no value saved in that field.

    Hello, this idea has been completed in the 09/16/2021 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    Transcripts – Summer schools and summer school terms were being included in mark averaging, fixed. Blank spaces in the repeat tag would prevent mark averaging, fixed. Only local schools are applicable for mark averaging. Records had the potential be added to mark averaging groups when only one of the records had a numeric mark, fixed.

  20. Remove green highlighting from retired CALPADS fields

    Because the Highly Qualified field is no longer reported to CALPADS and is obsolete, please turn off the green highlight from the Teachers page and the MST/SMS pages.

    Other fields to be addressed:
    NCLB Core fields
    Voc Ed Level
