Adjust Socio-Economic Disadvantaged Status Calculation
Adjustments are needed in Aeries Analytics because of changes CALPADS is making for Parent/Guardian information on the SINF file. Education Level is now being collected separately for Guardian 1 and Guardian 2, Currently one method the student meets the definition is if the highest education level in STU.PED is Not A High School Graduate.
It seems the Disadvantaged extended analytics field should still work, at least for students who qualify as SED solely based on NSLP eligibility. But it appears to be completely broken as of this fall (2023). CDE announced the Parent Ed Level change more than a year ago - plenty of time to program adjustments for this very important data field! Please fix asap.

Since CALPADS is not forcing new SINF records for all students will STU.PED be included in the Aeries calculation if CON has no parent ed level data for a student?
