Parent Ed Level in Contacts - Allow Required for Parent/Guardian Only
Parent Ed Level and Required fields: Please tie the 'Required' status of the con.elv field to only be required if the con.cd field matches the selected fields in District Settings: "Codes Identifying Parent/Guardian in Contacts (CON.CD)". So, if we choose to make the con.elv a required field -- it will only be required when the cd = those in district settings.

This would be so awesome!

We use Aeries online enrollment (for new students) and data confirmation (for returning students).
Aeries enrollment is set up to require at least one parent/guardian contact and that any parent/guardian contact state their highest level of education. Given the changes in CALPAD reporting requirements for parent names/education levels, is there a way to make this a requirement for both parents (and opt out if only one parent) for both online enrollment and data confirmations?
Parent Data Confirmation should require the parent ed level to be populated. This is the best way to collect the information on current students (not newly enrolled/online enrollment). Perhaps require it, if the lives with field is populated yes, or if the relationship is mother, father, stepmother, stepfather. Currently, you can define required fields but when in Parent Data Confirmation it allows the user to save without populating the Parent Ed Level. Perhaps another way is to add another column in the Portal Groups Fields that is Required. Currently, this is Read and Update only.
