  1. Classes Section of the Parent Portal should display the Gradebook name

    The Classes section on the new Parent Portal student dashboard, is displaying the Course name instead of gradebook name in an elementary with MST school. The Class Summary is displaying both the Course and Gradebook name.

  2. 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:

    • Add a new Portal Option to list ATN.CD code values (comma…

  3. Add start and end dates to SSE table

    It would be extremely helpful to capture start and end dates for staff members under section staff members on a class section. This would help with identifying which teacher was in the classroom on a specific day and when the new teacher/sub took their place.

  4. 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”.

  6. 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.

  7. Student Attendance Detail add student's CTE Code V1 - V6 status by date

    On the Student Attendance Detail, the CTE code V1 - V6 displayed for each student in the Programs area does not reflect a code change during overlapping CAR dates (when the student was enrolled in more than one CTE section, and when the CAR dates for the 1+ sections are not the same). If a student is in CTE, their student page should reflect the student's status of V1 - V6 by date so that the customer can tell how many days the student was V1 vs. V2, etc., during the reporting period.

  9. CALPADS SDEM - Staff extract was extracting staff with Hire dates up to October 31.

    CALPADS SDEM Extract: Adjust the query that selects staff to use the Census Date rather than October 31 when evaluating the hire date and the Job Assignment Start Date (STJ). Only extract Staff as of Information Day.

  10. Weekly Instructional Minutes-Need to modify when sections are visible

    Several issues with the display of sections for Weekly Instructional Minutes. It may be analyzing CAR to see if there are students in the class, but not analyzing the dates to see if they fall within that specific week.
    1) Sections appearing for teacher before they actually begin (Spring sections showing in Fall)
    2) Students starting midweek are not triggering the section to show.
    3) Elementary without master schools also having issue with students not appearing in the prior weeks when they change teachers. Need to analyze dates in the ATT table for straight elementary schools.
    4) When a section…

    School Option – A new option has been added to Calculate Attendance Totals Based on Period Attendance. This option will impact attendance calculations, attendance history calculations, CALPADS STAS extract, the student profile display and the attendance page display.

  13. Allow push and pull setup tables to more than just admins

    I believe we should be able to delegate security to roles such as these. We should have to have to have our system administrator do these types of things. The system administrator controls security.
    Here is an article on the topic I am asking about:

  14. Mass Change Period Absences by List of Students

    When using the Mass Change Period Absences by List of Students it would be so useful if there was an All Day box we could check that would enter the 2nd/3rd ADA period code into the All Day box automatically. Right now I use this page to enter all the period codes and a note but I then have to go back and individually enter the code into the All Day box because it doesn't upload automatically. This is the only page that allows us to see if a code is already entered for students so that we don't override…

    This was completed on the 4/15/2021 version.
    Here is the revision note:
    Mass Change Period Absences – This page now supports Primary and Secondary ADA Times as defined on the School Options and Calendar pages. These times are available for schools utilizing Attendance Time for All Day Attendance Management on School Options. When attendance is taken for students in a period that meets during the Primary ADA time, the All-Day Code will be updated automatically. Also, when a Secondary ADA Time is defined, students who do not have a class during the Primary ADA Time on a day will have their All-Day Code updated when attendance is taken during their class that meets during the Secondary ADA Time. Using a tardy code in a period during the ADA Time will clear an All-Day absence.
