Page Comment
Student Information LTEL information will now display at the top of student-related pages in the current user has read permissions to the LAC table and the student is marked "English Learner". Also, Elementary with Master schools now show "Teacher" instead of "Counselor".
CALPADS Extracts The logic to update FRE from Direct Certification has been adjusted to include the students with Reduced ("R") meals. This change is also included in the "Old UI" (Aeries Version 7).
Initialize ATT/CAR Initializing the ATT and CAR tables now requires that Nightly Processing of Attendance History be enabled. Also, the "students with unassigned teacher" error message was always visible in elementary schools, fixed. Also, the "Term Table Start and End Date Missing" error message was not always displaying correctly, fixed.
Copy Scheduling Results to SEC & MST This process was not properly skipping DEL-tagged records in certain places, fixed.  This process also now requires that the scheduling tables be "active".  This should help prevent people from running this process multiple times and causing data integrity issues.
Scheduling Setup This page now skips cached values so changes in other parts of the system immediately are reflected on this page.
Online Help Aeries continues to migrate online help to the Freshdesk Knowledge base ( instead of

District Asset Security The Functions area of District Assets is now only accessible if a user has Read permissions to the DRA table.  Also, the Mass Add Checked-Out Fees page was visible to users with only Read permissions to FEE, although they could not actually use the page if they navigated there.  Viewing this page in the Navigation now requires Mass Update permissions to FEE.

Supplemental Attendance Sessions The Students tab of this page would not allow students to be added since the 7/14 update, fixed.

Standards Based Missing Marks report This report will now limit to marks in the current reporting period.
