Aeries Revision Notes 1/4/2019

Language AssessmentIn accordance with CALPADS, a new field, "US School Ages 3 & Up" is now an available option to capture the first entry into a US school when a Title III Immigrant is at least 3 years old.  This new field is associated to the db column, US3, in the LAC table.  The USS column now refers to first US School entry in K-12.
CALPADS ExtractsSELA extract: when the ELPAC Initial Test Date (LAC.ITD) was after the EL start date (LAC.SD) or after the IFEP start date (LAC.IFD), the student was not being included in the extract, fixed.
Student ProfileThe Attendance Summary information on this page has been adjusted.  Period Attendance Schools will now see "Period Tardies" instead of "Daily Tardies".  Positive, Period Attendance schools will see "Period Absences," "Periods Unexcused," and "Periods Present".  All totals will now not count any attendance information posted for future dates.  Also, Suspensions were not being counted as Absences, fixed.
Student AttendanceThe Attendance Code Summary list has been adjusted so that Suspensions and In-House Suspensions are no longer counted in the Excused and Unexcused Absence Totals.  This now matches logic throughout the rest of Aeries.  This logic change also impacts the Period and Daily Attendance Reports for All Students.  Also, the Term Totals now display "Periods Tardy" instead of "Days Tardy" in period attendance schools.
Student Attendance ReportsDaily Tardy Totals have been replaced with Period Tardies on the Period Attendance reports for single or many students.

Attendance HistoryAt period positive attendance schools, support for the "Temporarily Not Enrolled" absence code in period attendance has been added.
Aeries ReportingThe Aeries Reporting Service can now be configured to receive messages from a remote Message Queue.  This will allow multiple Reporting Servers to connect to a centralized Message Queue.  This can improve overall reporting performance and scalability for high usage systems like the Aeries Hosted environment.
Aeries AnalyticsThe Analytics Process is now multi-threaded to increase performance.
Analytics Item DefinitionsThe "Process Current Indicator" button on the Summary Data tab is now being done as a "Long Running Process" in the Aeries Reporting Engine to prevent time-out issues with large districts.
