The new Student Academic Plan screen and related pages
have been released. The new academic plan screen displays the plans in a
hierarchical way and allows counselors to easily and quickly create
individualized plans for students. Schools now can allow Student/Parent
Portal users access to this screen for possible modifications, which can be
managed in the portal options. Counselors have the ability to accept or
reject changes made by students which are displayed on a new Academic Plan
Summary widget on the homepage.
The new High School Graduation/College Preparedness
Status Dashboard screen displays school-wide rate of students who are on/off
track in bar graphs and in total numbers, according to data from their
academic plan, transcript data, and currently scheduled classes. This page
also allows the users to list and keep the students with a click of a button.
Also, a new High School Graduation Status (HSG) table has been added to
Aeries storing subject and credit totals for each student. This table gets
populated for each student when viewing their graduation status page or for
all students in the current school by clicking the calculate button on this
Update Academic Plan Options
This is another page added as part of this series of
changes to the Academic Plan in Aeries. This page allows schools to mark
which courses are available for students to add to their own academic plan
through the portal. Portal Options are also available for date ranges when
parents/students can update the academic plan.
After listing a set of students from Query, a KEEP
STUDENTS button is now displayed on the Query Display window allowing the
user to quickly keep the list of students displayed. Currently this process
resets any existing KEEP statements although this will be enhanced in a
future version of Aeries to apply the new KEEP as a nested KEEP.
The SENR ODS reconciliation is now available and has
greatly reduced the processing time in comparison to the client version. The
system maximum upload size has been increased from 50MB to 100MB to allow
uploading large ODS files. Also, the SELA and LTEL imports were not properly
validating the file extension of the file being imported, fixed.
Additionally, there is new logic in the update process to remove possible
commas on the source files from these two imports as they could prevent
completing the update. Also, adjusted logic for the SINF extract to avoid
error for invalid SSIDs.
Grades from previous schools in the current year can
now be displayed on the Grades page.
District Student Lookup
District Student Lookup will now allow searching by new
IDN.CID field (State ID).
A new option has been added to this page allowing users
schedule classes for the spring term only. This is similar to a feature in
the Aeries Client. Also, the Scheduling Group fields (SG, CG, TM, GP) have
been added to the Section Info box. In a simple view, these fields will be in
the tooltip when hovering and otherwise will display in the section info
section after Teacher Name. Also, if MST View is showing as a popup window
inside the page, a new icon has been added to the window for pop-out options.
Create Sections For Next Term
This page has been re-activated in Aeries. This process
has been changed to be a "long-running process" to avoid a page
request timeout error. The user will now receive an email upon the completion
of the process. Also, the previously identified problem of creating new
sections with the current course instead of next course has been fixed.
Escape HR Custom Import
With additional counties and districts having expressed
an interest in this feature, the "Sonoma - Escape HR Import" has
been renamed to "Escape HR Custom Import" and will now show in the
navigation menu for all customers when logged in as an Admin. This feature
does require a custom implementation from Escape Technology. Please contact
either Aeries Support or Escape Technology for more information.
Student and Parent accounts with appropriate
permissions can now access the Student Documents page under the "Student
Info" navigation tab in the Student/Parent Portal. Also, the "Only
Show Current Grade" checkbox will now default to unchecked every time
the page is loaded. This should eliminate confusion where many users do not
realize an older document exists because the results are limited to the
current grade. Also, under certain conditions, users without the appropriate
"Administer" permission to Student Documents could modify a DOC
record uploaded by another user, fixed.
Apple School Manager Extract
This process has been enhanced based on Apple's latest
specification. The Students and Staff files now support multiple locations
(i.e., schools), and the Classes file now supports additional instructors.
This should eliminate errors and issues when students have multiple active
enrollments or when teachers teach at more than one school.
Aeries Mobile Portal App
Adjustments have been made to Aeries to support
upcoming changes to the Aeries Mobile Portal. To allow users of the app in
your district to take advantage of these new features, please update Aeries
to this version. Changes include Gradebook Last Updated Information,
displaying the assignment category on the Course Assignments screen, and
additional refinements to the Gradebook Views.
Adjustments have been made to remove an image that a
district felt could result in an adverse reaction from their employees
considering recent local events. This change was made immediately throughout
the Aeries customer base through the centralized login background management
system for Aeries.
Algebra 1 Graduation
The calculation of this graduation requirement now
properly populates the TPS table and is updated with a fresh calculation
every time it is displayed throughout Aeries, including on various reports.
The Language Assessment page now supports displaying
data from partner districts for shared students. This is a beta feature of
Student Special Programs and
These pages now handle displaying data from partner
districts for shared students. This is a beta feature of Aeries.
The current student photo can now be deleted from a new
Edit button next to the photo on the Demographics page.
Student Information Bar
When hovering over the age of a student, the tooltip
will now display their age in months.
Create Pre-Enrolled Students
Visual improvements and layout changes have been made
to this page, especially for smaller screen resolutions.
An incorrect health problem (STU.HP) could be displayed
when a single student was in multiple schools with different health problems,
Fixed issues with Internet Explorer 10 and iPhone 6
Safari, the navigation now shows and works as intended.
The Login page had the possibility of loading slowly if
certain network issues were occurring, fixed.
The Mobile App Settings section was getting cleared out
in certain situations, fixed. Also, the OAuth Settings is now hidden from
districts in the Aeries Hosting Environment as this is set by Aeries Staff.
The Intervention Caseload Manager on the home page
would not always displays the Intervention Goals properly, fixed.
Daily Apportionment by Month
This report was not properly formatting the Percent
Present on the Month Average since the 11/17 update, fixed.
Hourly Attendance Report
The Continuation option now always uses 3 hours max per
day. Previously, it was using the value entered for the N Hours Per Day
option. Also, visual adjustments have been made to make the report options
easier to read.
Gradebook Summary report
Long Gradebook names were being cut off, fixed.
When Physical Fitness Testing was enabled along with
either Algebra 1 Requirement or CAHSEE in Aeries Variables for Current
School, viewing Student Demographics data of a student without a TPS record
would generate an error, fixed.
