Don't create PGM 181/182 Free/Reduced Record w/ Direct Cert import-PGM records in CALPADS end when stu exits, even if stu returns-DCs don't
Aeries automatically creates program 181/182 records for all direct certification imports with the direct certification extract from CALPADS.
CALPADS Fall 1 Report 1.17 counts Free & Reduced Meal Program 181/182 records, but also ends 181/182 program records if a student exits. Aeries, on the other hand, does not automatically end the 181/182 record that was created with the direct cert import process. If the student happens to return, CALPADS no longer counts the 181/182 program record, however, Aeries does.
In other words, if a student exits the school CALPADS ends the 181/182 record based on the date the student exited, despite whether the student returns. This throws off the counts between Aeries and CALPADS. Aeries shows 1 more 181/182 record than the CALPADS 1.17 report if the student happens to return.
Aeries should instead tag direct certifications in a different way - Aeries should not create a 181/182 record for a direct certification because direct certifications do not end based on a student's exit date in CALPADS. Program records on the other hand, are ended in CALPADS based on a student's exit date.
