Online Enrollment - make certain fields required
There are several sections in the online enrollment that are required by Calpads and Aeries gives the option of "decline to answer".
My suggestion is to remove the decline to answer option and make it a requirement to fill in a response. The areas are: Is this student Hispanic or Latino?, What is the race of this student?, What is the highest parent education level?
In Online Enrollment, there are options to set various pieces of data as required or optional (such as race and ethnicity).
