  1. 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.

  3. SSID Import fails with new CALPADS SpEd Indicator

    CALPADS added a new field to the SSID Extract file to hold a Special Education indicator as of 9/15/2020. We are adjusting our import process to handle this new indicator in a similar fashion as the English Language Acquisition Code and Date in the SSID Extract.

  5. 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…

    Hello, the idea has been completed in the 12/04/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:

    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.

  8. 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.

    Hello, this item has been completed in the 10/26/2020 AppStore iOS Mobile Portal update. Parents will need to update their Mobile Portal App to see the change to the attendance screen.
    iOS phones will now display the same wording as Android phones when a student does not have any attendance data (i.e., no absences, tardies, etc.) : No attendance data available

  9. 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.

    Hello, this issues was fixed in the 10/14/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    Teacher Attendance: When time restrictions for taking attendance are enabled but either forward-posting or back-posting attendance is also enables, posting attendance on days other than the current day will now not enforce the time/bell schedule restrictions.

  10. School Options Incorrect Validation Message when Saving

    School Options page is giving a message when trying to change the school to Scheduling Type of "Secondary" and Attendance Type of "Period" and not able to save.

  11. 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”.

  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.

  16. LTEL Import needs to be updated for the new file format

    The full state Long-Term English Learner (LTEL) file from the California Department of Education has changed formats from the previous year. The file is unable to be processed in Aeries in the new format in the LTEL Import function.

    Programming needs to adjust the LTEL Import process.

    Hello, this issue has been resolved with the 9/24/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:

    CALPADS Extracts – The LTEL Import has been updated to handle the new Long-Term English Learner file. The file is now a fixed-width file, instead of the tab-delimited from previous years, and has an additional column. The import will no longer support files from previous years.

    These adjustments were made in the 11/20/2020 update to Aeries:
    SELA Conflict Report – The report has been adjusted to handle Adult English Learner (ADEL) language fluency. Also, it now supports KEEP / SKIP, school selection (when logged at the district and not running the report from the CALPADS page), and the ability to skip Pre-School (PS) grade level.

  19. Show Attendance Code Descriptions in Teacher Portal

    I wanted to let you know that this idea has been completed and is available in the 9/15/2020 AeriesWeb update. Thank you very much!

  20. Allow teachers to mass add attendance codes in the Teacher Portal Attendance page

    For the 2020-2021 school year, schools are adding 'Engagement" attendance codes for teachers to mark for every students. This is in accordance with the new SB-98 CA legislation.

    This idea was provided during the LACOE Attendance Symposium on 8/13/20. Teachers would like the ability to select a particular engagement attendance code and mass add it to all students then if needed, deselect appropriate individual students when appropriate thus saving time selecting codes for each individual student.

    Similar to how teachers mass add assignment results in the Aeries Gradebook.
