  4. Create CALPADS SPRG 185 Records for TK from Student TK Grade Enrollment instead of PGM

    Using PGM to generate SPRG 185 records for TK students is redundant as Aeries already has the -1 grade level for TK students. Adjust the CALPADS SPRG extract to process student ATT/ENR data for the TK Grade Level to generate SPRG 185 records. PGM 185 could still remain and continue to work, but schools should have the option to not use PGM.

    Hello, this AeriesIdea item has been completed in the 7/13/21 update. Here are the pertinent Revision Note(s):

    CALPADS Extracts

    The SPRG extract has been enhanced to handle program code 185 for Transitional Kindergarten students. No records will be needed in PGM. The program records will be dynamically inserted into the SPRG extract for those students who need it, with appropriate beginning and ending dates.

  5. 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.

  6. Report for missing Attendance Notes

    For SB 98, we have instructed our Daily attendance teachers to fill in DL Engaged or DL Not Engaged as an Daily Attendance note. We need a way to pull the teachers that have missing filling in the Daily notes. Just like we run for missing attendance, we need tor run for missing notes.

    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. 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”.

  9. Classroom Attendance - Display Additional Student Data Fields

    To help with Hybrid instruction, - Display Additional Student Data Fields on the Classroom Attendance page.
    For A/B Groups of students, students will be flagged using a Student User Code field. This information can be displayed to teachers on the Teacher Attendance page, but if office staff have to take attendance for a teacher, the Classroom Attendance page also need to display this information for each student.

    Hello, this idea/bug has been completed in the 9/28/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    This page now displays the additional student fields configured on the Portal Options page. Also, the Stu ID, Grade, Track, Program, and these new student field columns can be sorted ascending or descending. Also, the section number is now displayed in the table header. Removed the ‘Include Inactive Teachers’ checkbox if the school is using section staff.

  10. Users (Security) - Add User Type Column to Display on Search

    Please add another column - type (teacher, user, admin) to the users page along with the ability to sort or filter.

    Security – The User Type column has been added when searching or listing users on the Security pages. Also, when viewing lists of users, columns can now be sorted and filtered on.

  11. Online Course Requests - Allow more than 1 Alternate course

    Online Course Requests and choosing Alternate Courses thru Aeries Student Portal – the current setup allows for a primary course selection, with 1 alternate course option. Is there a way to have 1 primary selection with 4 alternate selections (or another method that may accomplish the same result)?

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

    Hello, the idea (or bug) has been completed in the 02/12/21 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    Weekly Instructional Minutes – *
    The page now allows all associated teachers who could normally submit attendance to certify a class. *
    The staff dropdown was updated to only include teachers.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. SELA Conflict Report - Would Like Option to Include Inactives AND Skip Pre-Enrolled

    In the SELA Conflict Report "Include Inactive Students" and "Pre-Enrolled" are considered the same type of tag in the results when running the report. The tag types are not the same. You would rarely want to run a report to include students who were Pre-Enrolled but never attended. You would likely want to include those who were with you but are now Inactive because you reported their data to CALPADS and want to audit the data.

    This idea was completed with the 11/20/2020 update to Aeries with the following revision note:

    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.

  17. Global Messages should be at the top of the home page

    Move School and District Messages (Global Web Messages) to the top of the home page to make them more prominent. They should also be sorted by most recently modified.
