  2. Mass Change All Day Code - Process is not honoring the MST.ADA field

    The Mass Change All Day Code page is not honoring the Master Schedule ADA field with a value of N to Not Count in Mass Change (MST.ADA = N). Students are displaying when a section has the MST.ADA = N populated and should be excluded.

    The Mass Change All Day code form is working correctly.  We recommend entering 0 for least number of absences instead of entering a number.  The MST.ADA = N means don't count a "present" in this class towards the "N or more" count in Mass Change. If the student is absent for 5 out of 6 classes, but the 6th class is MST.ADA = N, then they will count as absent for all 6 classes on the Mass Change All Day Code page.

  3. Courses

    Add the ability to assign CA specific settings at the course level instead of section level. Such as Local Assignment Options and Instructional Strategy.

  5. PFT - Physical Fitness Testing - Update Pass/Fail (without the submission) to confirm with PFT requirement to notify Parents of results

    Starting with the 21-22 results, PFT requires that parents receive their students' PFT - Physical Fitness Testing results. As such, can Aeries still provide a way to automatically update Pass/Fail without the submission information? (CDE PFT meeting 1/25/2023)

    Per the PFT Webinar on January 25th, 2023. According to CDE the LEAs are not required to send the PFT pass/not pass results or "Healthy Fitness Zones" to the parents. They do, however, need to report the raw scores to the students. The CDE said it would be an LEA's local decision to report the PFT scores to the parents. (also see item 6 under PFT Data in the CDE's Physical Fitness FAQ page

    https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/pf/pft11fasqa.asp)

    The Fitnessgram uses proprietary calculations for the VO2max and the Healthy Fitness Zones. As such, Aeries cannot calculate the pass/not passed statuses for the individual test parts. LEA staff, however, are able to hand enter the pass/not pass test statuses for each student or run mass change queries on the PFT data to set the statuses.

    In testing administrations prior to COVID the PFT data would be exported from Aeries and uploaded into the…

  6. Parent Weekly Grade Update in Parent Square

    In Parent Square, allow parents to sign up for Weekly Grade notification. Currently offered in Portal, but parents cannot do this inside of app. Why do they need to go to 2 platforms?

    Hi Ali, Unfortunately, we won't be able to accept this request to allow users to control the weekly progress report emails through ParentSquare. Our integration with ParentSquare is not set up to handle this type of action. ParentSquare primarily serves as a communication platform, and facilitates that communication to various parties over a variety of configurable communication types, but ParentSquare never dictates what information comes out of Aeries.

  7. We would like a report option to print transcripts with the students immunization record on the reverse side of the page.

    We would like the option to print transcripts with the immunization record on the reverse side of the page. This would help with student records retention. The transcript and immunization record are permanent records, required to be kept indefinitely. Many schools are running out of space to store these records. If the two could be combined front to back it would save on storage space.

    Aeries allows for immunizations to be included on the transcript.  This can be set up on the Transcript Definition > Things to Print tab. If you are using the 3-column transcript there are some limitations to how much can be printed in the the Things to Print area, you may want to look into using the Enhanced 1-column transcript.

    Here is some documentation:

  8. Default Online Enrollment Surveys to "NO" for Military Survey, Residency Survey, and Foster Survey

    Allow a default answer of "No" for Military Survey, Residency Survey and Homeless survey so parents who do qualify would need to actively change the answer. Hopefully this will eliminate parents who click "Yes" erroneously.

    With our focus on having a model where individual teacher records are not duplicated at each school, we will be declining this idea at this time. Thank you for your feedback!

    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.

  11. TREx Export - Add TestName for ARR Transcript.

    TestName in the documentation for AAR is not included but it really should be since assessment data is more meaningful/usable with it

  12. Display Student ID in Gradebook

    There is a new feature that allows the display of the Student ID directly in the gradebook. It would be helpful to allow the option of showing the “Student Number” instead.

    The Aeries Student ID number is unique to each student, and generally never changes. In the spirit of eliminating the student number throughout Aeries, which does change over time, we have decided to decline this request. It is still open for voting and comments and we will review in the future based on feedback received.

  13. Active teachers in table

    Only show ACTIVE teachers when looking at the teachers listed in the teacher table. Have a box to include inactive as an option

    Thanks for your feedback! We will soon be discontinuing the Teachers table in favor of our new Section Staff and Flex Scheduling model which utilizes Staff data. This will not be an issue since the Staff page already supports filtering for active staff members.

  14. Make Staff ID (STF.ID) editable

    We have a need for the staff id (STF.ID) to be editable. I understand that it is linked to many tables but I am hoping that logic can be created that would update all related tables when STF.ID is edited.

    The Staff ID field (STF.ID) is not editable because it is a unique identifier (primary key) for a staff member, so we do not plan to add any functionality to edit it at this time. This is similar to course IDs which cannot be changed. What can be done is a new staff record could be created and then all references to the old staff ID be changed if absolutely necessary.

  15. Flag/Pop-up when Email in Contacts and Parent Portal don't match.

    Trying to work on Data Validations and Email Addresses. A secretary wanted to know why Aeries doesn't have a pop-up or something if the parent creates a Portal Account with a different email address than what is in Contacts. And, vice versa, if someone adds or changes an email address in Contacts, why doesn't it say Doesn't Match Portal Account email, or something like that. Specifically if the Contacts page is set to Yes for Parent Portal. Geez, I hope that makes sense.
    Thank you!!!

  16. Online Enrollment - match to Previous Year Databases

    We would like the ability for the Online Enrollments Import Process to look through previous year's databases. Parents who had kids attend a school many years prior, but their records never moved to the Inactive School, are not able to be matched to an existing record. This means the district has to manually add the student without using Online Enrollment.

    Thank you for your idea. The use of an inactive school is a recommended procedure in Aeries. If there are students not in the inactive school, it may be prudent to work with our support team to do a one-time cleanup process to move all missing students to the current year inactive school.
