  1. Add a field for Staff Legal name on STF

    We have to use our staff's legal name for any state reporting. However, our district allow our staff members to operate with a preferred name. I am asking for a space for a staff legal name so we can use the preferred name everywhere else in the system (master schedule, portals, Staff table).

  3. User Security Permissions - Option to give users previous year's permissions

    Currently, after the roll over takes place, we have to manually add back permissions to user accounts for previous years data. Many users are staff that require access to review previous year's data and having to manually update the Permissions table is a lot of additional work. It would be great to add the groups but in previous years. Thank you.

  4. CALPADS Extract Pull From LSI.GN

    Can we please have the extract pull from the LSI.GN field if the student has data populated in that field? It makes sense to extract from that field, particularly since if the LIS.LLN and LSI.LFN is populated that data gets extracted. We have a student (and surely more to come) that identify as a different gender. Populating the STU.GN with the students preferred gender is causing CALPADS fatal errors.

  5. Ability to hide a "preferred name" and gender from parent accounts as well as hide email accounts due to name/gender change.

    Students are supposed to be able to have a preferred name/gender at school without being required to disclose to their parents. However, parents are able to see the preferred name/gender in the homelink account as well as the email accounts. They can also see gender on the data confirmation page. I have students who want to do a name/gender change, but do not have supportive parents at home and are choosing not to because their parents will be able to see the change.

  6. Mass Add Attendance Notes

    Currently, Mass Change Period Absences only works for updating one day at a time which means attendance notes can only be added one day at a time. It would be helpful to be able to update attendance notes for a date range, ex: add same attendance note 9/13/21-9/15/21.

  8. Transcripts - Display student's legal and preferred name

    With student identity at the forefront, student's are changing their names in Aeries, we move legal name to the LSI fields for legal name and gender, but on transcripts students have to choose either to have their preferred name listed (unofficial transcript) or legal name shown (official transcript). I am requesting the option to add preferred name to show up along with legal name - basically allow both names to be listed on the transcript instead of choosing one or the other.

  10. Change CALPADS process to generate multiple EOY file types

    Due to the changes CALPADS launched in their new environment, we must make immediate adjustments to the End of Year Extracts

    FOR EOY Process, must output different records into several extracts
    Deletes
    Exits
    Updates

    This process is needed for any EOY file that is NOT a full-replacement file.

  11. Mass Import Files to Student Documents

    Requesting the ability to mass import files such as PDFs into Student Documents. The filenames would be the students' ID numbers. The import should match on student ID. The import should have the ability to mass populate dates, categories, subcategories, and related to fields as well as the ability to lock the records being imported.

  12. Electronic Report Cards - Add an Opt-Out Option

    In the same vein as the idea submitted for emailing grade report notifications, we would like to allow parents to opt-out of receiving paper report cards.

    We would like Online Enrollment, Parent Data Confirmation and the Portal to include an 'Opt-out of mailed grade reports' button. Parents should have an easy way to opt-in or out as needed while allowing the district to save postage, forms, toner, and man-hour costs to distribute report cards to parents who don't need or want them.

    Then, have the grade reporting process include one function to post report cards to all students' portal accounts…

  13. Bell Schedule in the Calendar DAY, the DAY.BS column is still 0

    When you apply a Bell Schedule in the Calendar DAY, the DAY.BS column is still 0, even after you apply the Bell Schedule BSD Key to a day on DAY. So the FK from BSD to DAY is SC, BS, but DAY.BS is always 0.
    Adding a Bell Schedule in the Calendar DAY, I think should record the BDS.KY into DAY.BS, but DAY.BS is always blank. Ticket Reference 308527

  14. New Report : Home Language Survey

    It would be helpful for our district to be able to isolate in a PDF/report the questions asked in the Language Information section of Online Enrollment. Since this information needs to be sent with cumulative files etc, it would be nice to collect it electronically, but also produce a paper copy if needed with just those questions.

  16. Include Unaccompanied Youth Indicator in Residence Survey Audit Tool

    The Residence Survey Audit Tool is incomplete. As it currently stands, it adds a whole bunch of 191 records that are missing a State Required Field (Unaccompanied Youth Indicator), thus resulting in fatal errors when sending up the SPRG. For this tool to be really effective and time-saving, the Unaccompanied Youth indicator needs to be included. Maybe auto-populate it as a N and then we can go in and change the the Ys? Or include an option for the person completing the Audit to indicate a Y or N for Unaccompanied Youth.

  17. Attendance Notes Dropdown - code column not visible

    Attendance Notes dropdown - Please swap places in the dropdown of how attendance notes are viewed by placing the code to the left of the description. A lot of instruction at the local level are written out with the code to use, but it's not easily visible in the dropdown.

  18. Online Enrollment - Sandbox for next year's registration process

    It would be great to be able to make and preview changes for the coming year's registration process in AIR without them immediately being "live" for the current year. This would also help to ensure things are working properly before parents dive in!

  19. Allow 2 character absence codes

    With all of the new absence codes we had to add for Distance Learning and now the ones we have to add for COVID related absences for P-EBT, we have run out of letters and have used almost half of the numbers and really need 2 character absence codes to be allowed in the system.

  20. Update Attendance automatically based on Assertive Discipline suspension

    When an Admin inputs a suspension within a student's Assertive Discipline, which notates the number of days the student is suspended and what dates, is there a way to make that automatically populate "S" as the all-day attendance code in that student's attendance? The student's attendance isn't always updated that day for suspensions. Then an attendance notification will out to the parent asking why the student was absent which would have been because they were suspended.

    Thank you for your help.
