  1. CALPADS SPRG ODS - enhance process for FRE records that need to be deleted

    CALPADS SPRG ODS - Enhance the reconciliation process for FRE records that need to be deleted.
    In the SPRG ODS Reconciliation process, the records with a date that started prior to the first day of school but after 6/30 of the previous year are being closed 1 day before the enrollment start date causing the record to receive a GERR0005 error in CALPADS and will not post successfully. LEAs do not have ownership which is causing LEAs to have to manually clean up data, in some cases hundreds of records.

    • CALPADS Extracts:
      The page now supports the new three-character language codes for the 2023-2024 school year, which will be effective 9/19/2023. The translations will automatically be added to the cross-reference table (XRF). 
    • The Parent Education Level is now extracted from the Ed Level field on the Contacts page (CON.ELV) for both parents according to the Codes Identifying Parent/Guardian in Contacts CON.CD on District Settings, due to changes in the CALPADS state requirements.

    School Info > Exports and Imports > CALPADS Extracts

    • In flex and non-flex schools, the CALPADS > Fall 2 > Create Course Files (CRSE/SCSE) extract included sections that did not fall on the Census Date for itinerant teachers, which generated CERT079 error in CALPADS. The CRSE process for Itinerant Teachers now only extracts sections that meet on Information Day (Census Day).  See Flex Scheduling - CRSE Extract or CALPADS in Aeries Basic - Master Schedule.
  16. SENR ODS reconciliation - unneeded removal records generated

    The SENR ODS reconciliation process is creating D records in the removals file needlessly when a student has an enrollment status change (such as grade level, school transfer) - commonly referred to as a 440 or E150 change. In these cases the enrollment date (start date) is not changing... nor are the other SENR operational key fields (School of Attendance, SSID, Start Date) - so a (D)elete record is not needed.

    Having uneeded (D)elete records in the removals file causes increased workload due to:
