  2. Allow teachers to mass add attendance codes in the Teacher Portal Attendance page

    For the 2020-2021 school year, schools are adding 'Engagement" attendance codes for teachers to mark for every students. This is in accordance with the new SB-98 CA legislation.

    This idea was provided during the LACOE Attendance Symposium on 8/13/20. Teachers would like the ability to select a particular engagement attendance code and mass add it to all students then if needed, deselect appropriate individual students when appropriate thus saving time selecting codes for each individual student.

    Similar to how teachers mass add assignment results in the Aeries Gradebook.

  3. Teacher Attendance - allow sorting by the Additional Stu field columns configured on Portal Options.

    To help with Hybrid instruction, allow sorting by the Additional Stu field columns configured on Portal Options on the Teacher Attendance page.
    When taking attendance for a class of students who are mixed between on campus and distance learning, this will help group these sets of students to make attendance taking easier for teachers.

  4. Report for missing Attendance Notes

    For SB 98, we have instructed our Daily attendance teachers to fill in DL Engaged or DL Not Engaged as an Daily Attendance note. We need a way to pull the teachers that have missing filling in the Daily notes. Just like we run for missing attendance, we need tor run for missing notes.

    Hello, this idea/bug has been completed in the 12/17/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:

    Missing Distance Learning Attendance Information Report – The report was added to display students per class and day who are missing Attendance Codes or Attendance Notes related to distance learning on remote learning days. See https://support.aeries.com/support/solutions/articles/14000125069-tracking-student-engagement-and-participation-sb-98-

  5. Teacher Attendance - Allow Quick Attendance Notes

    To help with Hybrid instructions, Allow Quick Attendance Notes on the Teacher Attendance page.

    For students engaged in distance learning on a particular day, a teacher must track the means by which the student engaged that day. Attendance Notes is a possible way to track this information instead of the Gradebook. But Attendance Notes are not easily added for large groups of students. This feature would make it a simple process of checking the correct box(es) for students on how they engaged that day.

    Here are some possible ideas:

  6. Teacher Attendance - Allow Updating of Certain Codes

    The Aeries Teacher Portal currently allows teachers to override any verified absence code, or override only unverified absence codes, and there isn't an option to allow teachers to override only certain verified absence codes.

    In Aeries, a Tardy Truant is treated as a Verified Tardy, which makes sense. However, if a teacher accidentally selects Tardy Truant, since it's considered "verified", they can't un-select it.

    It would be great if we could provide a comma-separated list of verified absence codes that teachers could override on the Portal Options screen. We wouldn't want to allow teachers to override all absence codes, like…

    This idea was completed with the 10/14/2020 update to Aeries with the following revision note:

    Teacher Attendance and Portal Options: A new portal option has been added to “Only Allow Teachers to Override Attendance Codes listed”. With this option, teachers will not be able to override a Verified Absence Code except when that Attendance Code is available to be used by a teacher. Due to recent changes for Distance Learning attendance accounting, teachers have been given access to use some Verified Attendance Codes but this presented problems because teachers had to either be allowed to override ANY Verified Absence Code or get stuck with that code after having used it. This new option fixes that. This option is mutually exclusive to the option to “Allow teachers to override verified absences”.

  7. Show Attendance Code Descriptions in Teacher Portal

    With the new DL attendance codes teachers would like to easily determine the attendance code definition by being able to hover over the code value for the description to show.

  8. Classroom Attendance - Display Additional Student Data Fields

    To help with Hybrid instruction, - Display Additional Student Data Fields on the Classroom Attendance page.
    For A/B Groups of students, students will be flagged using a Student User Code field. This information can be displayed to teachers on the Teacher Attendance page, but if office staff have to take attendance for a teacher, the Classroom Attendance page also need to display this information for each student.

    Hello, this idea/bug has been completed in the 9/28/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    This page now displays the additional student fields configured on the Portal Options page. Also, the Stu ID, Grade, Track, Program, and these new student field columns can be sorted ascending or descending. Also, the section number is now displayed in the table header. Removed the ‘Include Inactive Teachers’ checkbox if the school is using section staff.

  9. Weekly Instructional Minutes - Add filter for Active staff or remove Inactive staff

    There should be a way to filter for Active staff or remove Inactive staff from the Weekly Instructional Minutes Certification

  10. Teacher Attendance - Back-posting attendance should not limit to the Bell Schedule

    Please allow teachers to change previous days attendance regardless of Portal Options to limit attendance to before or after a period time. Time of day should only affect today's date.

    Hello, this issues was fixed in the 10/14/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    Teacher Attendance: When time restrictions for taking attendance are enabled but either forward-posting or back-posting attendance is also enables, posting attendance on days other than the current day will now not enforce the time/bell schedule restrictions.

  11. Teacher Attendance: allow mass assignment of Attendance Notes to students in section

    Allow teachers to mass apply attendance notes to all of the students in a class.
