  3. District Attendance Letters - ability to sort printed letters

    When we take large batches of letters to the post office, we need to have them sorted by zip code. If we are running letters for the entire district, we will need this sort option when printing letters. We also need the ability to sort printed letters by school. Currently a copy of the letter is supposed to go into a students file, so we need to be able to easily divide up the printed letters by school so that they can be sent out for filing. No school is going to want to print 150+ letters one at a…

  5. Add ability to turn off notification of submitting future attendance

    Our attendance clerks are posting period attendance for future dates and have to acknowledge that they are posting future attendance for each day. Pretty tedious when a student is going to be out for a month or longer. It also gives the future warning for the next day. One warning or the ability to turn off those warnings would be greatly appreciated.

  6. Search by SSID on Attendance Management Page

    On the Attendance Management page, there is no option to search for a student by their SSID.
    Could this be added?
    Because of CALPADS this is an identifying item that is used more and more.

  7. The ability to select which Attendance Codes can have ADA Make-Up applied

    Currently Aeries allows ADA Make-Up to be applied to ANY all-day attendance code that does not apply to ADA. This list includes: (A,B,D,I,J,K,L,N,O,P,Q,S,U,X,Z)

    I’m assuming that this is not the appropriate process since it seems that some of these codes should not be getting Saturday School ADA Make-Up applied. Specifically, the D, L, O, and S codes although there are probably others that should not receive ADA makeup either.

    I would like the ability to select which attendance codes are allowed to have ADA Make-Up applied. For example, Aeries will currently allow it to be applied to a student out…

  8. Change the Attendance Letter List to have an option to print teacher instead of counselor

    Since the changes to the Demographic screen to include counselor as well as teacher the elementary level Attendance Letter List report does not print the teacher name. The office staff needs the teacher name printed instead. I would like to see an option to print teacher or counselor on the report interface at the elementary level.

  9. Please take off the Days with Truancies

    We would love to have the Days with Truancies taken off of the Parent Portal. Parents are so confused by this and the word Truancy makes the parents think the student is in trouble. We are constantly fielding calls about this. It's information that the parent doesn't need to have.

  11. Ability to Exclude Attendance Programs from separating out in Attendance reports

    In PowerSchool there was a way to indicate which Attendance Programs to separate out in the Monthly Attendance reports and summaries. We would use that to indicate our SDC kids for normal day-to-day things but keep them included in the general ed population counts on the reports. We would like that ability in Aeries so that we can indicate which ATT.SP should be separated into separate counts.

    Thank you

  12. Display attendance time on Attendance Submission Log report

    The Attendance Submission log page shows the time attendance was taken, but the printable report only shows the date attendance was taken, not the time. Using Aeries query also displays the datetime fields as date only.

  13. Placeholder image for photos

    When a student photo does not exist, instead of the Seating Chart in the Attendance by Photo screen showing a broken image icon (because it is, imo, malformed HTML (a bug!)) load a static placeholder image.

    <img src="data:image/jpg;base64," style="width:auto; height:auto;">

    Is invalid HTML, the source is not complete because it contains no actual data, eg an image of 0 length. Detect this state when building your base64 insert into the HTML and substitute in the placeholder when LEN = 0 for the data pulled from PIC.

  14. Attendance reports need to honor the Block Schedule Calendar and MST days of the week

    The Weekly Attendance report needs to honor the Block Schedule Calendar and print "Not Enrolled" on the days the period does not meet.

    Also, the Weekly Engagement report needs to honor the Block Schedule Calendar/MST Days of the Week

  16. Truancy (Attendance) Letters Based on Age

    The truancy 1, 2, and 3 letters are generated at the school sites. In previous years, we have kept only students grades 1-12 to receive the truancy letters. To stay compliant, we must include students who are 6 years old and older to receive these letters.

    Since this would be based on a student's 6th birthday and accounting for absences to generate letters AFTER their 6th birthday.

    What would be the best approach or query(ies) to do this since we cannot send a letter to a student who just turned six who is qualified to receive letters... when the student…

  17. make the lunch count field required for all of our K-5 sites

    Is it possible to make the lunch count field required for all of our K-5 sites? 
    I have checked our portal options and I see that we have the field enabled; however, I can't seen to figure out if there is a way to make this field required.

  18. Display Student Class Schedule next to Attendance record

    I am an attendance clerk at a high school. Typically the students have six teachers. There is a large blank space next to the student's attendance record where you can place the schedule. This would make things much more efficient for us. We currently have to go back and forth from attendance page to schedule page all day yet there is sufficient space next to attendance to add the student's schedule of classes. As attendance clerks, we have to make corrections to teacher errors all day. This would make this process more efficient.

  19. Improve Functionality of Teacher Attendance Mass Apply

    Here are three changes that would improve the usability of the new Mass Apply feature for attendance:

    1) Having the menu hidden by default is a nuisance for a teacher who has to use it 7 times a day. There should be an option to have the filter open by default. Perhaps a checkbox?
    2) The filter should remember the last setting used. For example if a teacher is filtering for a specific cohort that corresponds with a day the week, they would only have to set the filter up once at the start of the day instead of 7…
