  7. Copy ELPAC to LAC not including all parts from the test administration

    ELPAC now coming in with different dates on sub-parts of the test. Same Testing Administration. Causing an issue with Copy ELPAC to LAC. Only taking the parts with the most recent date, so only copied one sub-test. Need to change the Copy ELPAC scores to LAC to copy all scores with common Test Admin, as determined by the most recent date.

  8. Update State Seal of Biliteracy Calculations for 2020-21

    SB 820 recently amended EC Section 51451(d) to state, "…For pupils who are on track to graduate in 2021 and were unable to take the assessment identified in paragraph (2) of subdivision (a), the Superintendent may waive the requirement to pass that assessment." As a result, the CAASPP ELA requirement has been waived for the 2020-21 school year. Here is CDE's updated FAQ with details: https://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/el/er/ssbfaq.asp

    Please update the State Seal of Biliteracy processing to either exclude the CAASPP requirement for 2020-21, or make the CAASPP requirement optional, with direction to LEAs to mark it optional for this year's processing.

  12. Class Scheduling - Allow Alt Ed Scheduling for Specific Courses

    Would like to see a solution for High Schools who offer online courses (i.e. Edgenuity, APEX) and or use placeholder courses. Currently, High Schools are unable to know the exact course that students are taking via Edgenuity program, which makes it highly problematic to schedule, figure out their graduation status, keep tabs on progress via grading, transcribing.

    In looking at current Aeries features there are 2 current functions that get close to providing a solution. The first one is Alternative Ed. Scheduling, however I was told that this feature would not work in a regular comprehensive, as it would throw…

    School Option – A new option has been added to Calculate Attendance Totals Based on Period Attendance. This option will impact attendance calculations, attendance history calculations, CALPADS STAS extract, the student profile display and the attendance page display.

  15. Mobile App - Attendance wording when there is no data

    Please change the wording from "Nothing to Show" to something more user friendly like "Student has no absences" on the Attendance page when a student has no absences. "Nothing to Show" is confusing to some kids and to many parents.

  16. Teacher Attendance - Back-posting attendance should not limit to the Bell Schedule

    Please allow teachers to change previous days attendance regardless of Portal Options to limit attendance to before or after a period time. Time of day should only affect today's date.

  18. Teacher Attendance - Allow Updating of Certain Codes

    The Aeries Teacher Portal currently allows teachers to override any verified absence code, or override only unverified absence codes, and there isn't an option to allow teachers to override only certain verified absence codes.

    In Aeries, a Tardy Truant is treated as a Verified Tardy, which makes sense. However, if a teacher accidentally selects Tardy Truant, since it's considered "verified", they can't un-select it.

    It would be great if we could provide a comma-separated list of verified absence codes that teachers could override on the Portal Options screen. We wouldn't want to allow teachers to override all absence codes, like…

    This idea was completed with the 10/14/2020 update to Aeries with the following revision note:

    Teacher Attendance and Portal Options: A new portal option has been added to “Only Allow Teachers to Override Attendance Codes listed”. With this option, teachers will not be able to override a Verified Absence Code except when that Attendance Code is available to be used by a teacher. Due to recent changes for Distance Learning attendance accounting, teachers have been given access to use some Verified Attendance Codes but this presented problems because teachers had to either be allowed to override ANY Verified Absence Code or get stuck with that code after having used it. This new option fixes that. This option is mutually exclusive to the option to “Allow teachers to override verified absences”.

  19. 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.
