  1. More Standard Mastery Calculation Options

    Have multiple options for calculating overall mastery of a standard in the standard-based gradebook. For example, using a decaying average (weighting more recent items higher) to calculate a student's mastery of a particular standard.

  2. Undo mass add portal accounts

    We would like to be able to quickly undo a mass add of portal accounts. Ex. Not using a KEEP statement can cause unintended data corruption. We would like an easy way to quickly revert rather than going through Aeries Support or doing a manual backup.

  4. Inactive Courses - hide and prevent scheduling students into inactive classes

    For courses, hide Inactive courses by default on the Courses page. Also prevent students from being scheduled into inactive courses. Currently inactive courses get a yellow ribbon.

  5. Interventions - Use check boxes instead of drop downs

    Make check boxes for admins/principals to select instead of drop downs to the prior interventions, reasons & concerns and student strengths areas. This will expatiate the process while in an IEP meeting and discussing the students interventions.

  6. Ignore Required Fields for Specific Schools

    For schools that don't represent actively enrolled students (such as a Transfer School), allow a flag to turn off Required Fields so that minimal information is allowed to be added and updated for those student records.

  7. Hide Label Layout Levels on Pie Charts

    Add option to hide label layout levels that are not being used on pie charts. For example, hiding level 5 when looking at CAASPP performance levels.

  8. Independent Study Master Agreement

    ISMA Independent Study Master Agreement. I would like to have the ISMA be something that is available to download within Aeries.

  10. Print Readmit Slip from Medical Notes or Medical Log

    Request a readmit slip, under medical log for students getting seen in the health office. Schools have a high number of medical daily visits and having a program thru Aeries that is able to print health visits onto a 3 ply NCR DOT MATRIX PRINTER would be very efficient.

  11. Academic Plan Enhancements

    Making the Academic Plan more reflective of what is on the Graduation Status page would make it a much more useful tool.
    - We have students attending more than one high school concurrently (either a comprehensive and a credit recovery or a comprehensive and a virtual). We would like to be able to view a student's current and planned courses at all schools on the AP.
    - It would be less confusing to show the credits completed on the AP instead of the credits needed (so it would match what is on the GS page)
    - Courses that have a…

  12. Allow Required Fields to Honor Specific Grades

    Please allow required fields to apply only to specific grades, instead of the entire district like it is today.

  14. Instructional Minutes by Student Report indicate partial day students

    Is it possible to create a way to indicate a student attends only partial day per IEP when running the Instructional Minutes By Student report?

  15. Print Letters to Parents - Change wording on dropdown box to remove reference to terms

    On the Print Letters to Parents settings form it refers to a number of absences/tardies "this trimester" or "this semester" in the dropdown box. This report actually uses the Count Attendance Between Start Date and End Date field and has nothing to do with what the drop down says (trimester).

    Please change the wording from the drop down box to remove reference to a term. This can be confusing, because not all schools/Districts create letters on a per term basis. Should for example if the dropdown displays "7 or more days this trimester" it should be changed to "7 or…

  16. Update Online Course Request

    The current online course request structure does not match well with how IUSD does course requests. The current system requires students to select courses from specific subject areas and then offers them the option to select an alternate for that course.

    This is not ideal as it only allows a course-by-course alternate, rather than for prioritization.As the number of electives expands and course options grow wider, students often have three, or even as many as six, "electives." Some of these electives might even meet other subject area requirements, such as taking AP Stat and AP Calc.

    It would be better…

  17. Allow Report Card Type code value to be longer

    Currently STU.RC is limited to 3 characters. This is not enough report card types if we have to create an individual report card for each special education students. COD.CD is limited to 6 characters, and I can probably make that work, but even that will be tight.

  18. Public Course Catalog, by School

    Better search/display of the Courses in a 'Course Catalog'. Ideally it would be a form inside of the
    User/Admin/Teacher/Student/Parent portals, as well as publicly accessible. Parents and students would like to
    see the full course description in a clean & clear way to digest the course catalog when they are making
    course requests.

    Instead of exporting the course catalog from Aeries and posting separately online, we would like to direct families ( current, future, & past ) to a PUBLIC link that does not require a sign-in to search courses.

    We would like it search able by subject, department, pre-reqs,…

  19. Reduce Size of DOC Table - Nightly Process / External Storage Support

    Nightly process to either :

    -- Compress and/or reduce the dpi of documents found in
    the DOC table.

    -- DOC table link-able to another storage platform for cross-year storage to eliminate duplication during roll-over ( examples: Another external DB, Google Team Drive, Amazon Glacier, Share Point ).

    Goals:
    -- Reduce the size of the Aeries Annual DBs
    -- Improve daily performance
    -- Allow for better backup & retention policies.

    Background: In school year 2018-2019 we started using the DOC table to go 'paperless'. While this is a good
    feature for our staff, it caused our DB size to balloon well…

  20. Hide Schedule for Future Term - Improved Logic

    -- Add another option to hide Classes during summer ( no active terms )

    -- Update logic for "Hide Currently Scheduled Classes for Future Terms" to only show when school is in
    session based on 'Terms.aspx'

    -- Add a date range when classes/ teachers can be seen by parents

    Background
    During summer parents are able to complete re-registration. Schools do not want their schedules/classes/teachers to be show to parents/students. The feature above works during active terms,
    just not during summer.

    In order to hide this information, we must change "Portal Groups" for parents & students so they can not see…
