SINF - Contact Analysis Flowchart
The current Contact Analysis Flowchart seems to hinder accurately reporting student demographics information to CALPADS.
We would like step 1 to consider IF District Settings have any defined Guardian code(s).
IF Guardian codes have been established, reported contacts should be limited to Contact records using those codes.
IF a particular student does not have any contacts with a CON.CD matching one of the defined Guardian codes, then that student shouldn't have any contacts extracted due to not having the required information entered.
(potentially an option could be added to allow districts to FALL back to the CON.OR scheme -- though it likely shouldn't be encouraged)
Limiting the reported contacts to only those with a defined Guardian code allows the district to accurately report parent/guardian information as entered.
Having an alternate scheme complicates how to reason about what is being entered and can cover up mis-entry.
** The SINF data is extracted and loaded into CALPADS as a BATCH, so IT IS VERY difficult to find information that is not reported as expected! **
