This new feature is available to Aeries Communications customers who also use TITAN School Solutions. After the feature is configured by an administrator, parents can use the Aeries Parent Portal to sign up for Weekly Balance Information and/or Low Balance Alerts that will be delivered on a scheduled basis. Balance information will be pulled directly from TITAN via an API, and notifications will be delivered via the Aeries Communications platform.
Districts and Schools using Aeries Communications can now update the Notification Preferences of users from the Contacts page in Aeries. There is a new Icon on the Contacts page for the Notification Settings. This will be especially helpful when a parent requests that the school adjust these preferences for them.
The SENR Extract has been updated to include the new Non-ADA enrollment status (code 50). Also, the SPRG extract has been updated to include the new Education Program codes (301-306). These codes are available in the Special Programs page. Also, there are new options on the Code Translation tab to allow translating the new enrollment status and education program codes. Additionally, a new Post Secondary / Transition Status dropdown has been added under the Other Options tab, SENR Indicators.
A new Post-Secondary / Transition Status field (CSE.PSI) has been added to this page (both the Old and New versions). This is to allow tracking students using a field that is different than the existing Post Secondary Program and Post Secondary Employed fields (CSE.PSP and CSE.PSE).
A new option on the Google Apps Integration page will allow Google Account caching to be offloaded to the Reporting Server. Also, caching will now store data into the new DistrictCache table in the Aeries SQL DB to avoid interruption due to app pool recycles. Also, on the maintenance tab there is a new option to manually refresh the current cache and to list the accounts which currently reside in cache. Also, the user interface has been updated with more current styles.
Fields and Settings involved in State Reporting are now highlighted on this page when that user setting is enabled.
Standards Based Standards Report
This report is now available to Secondary Schools and no longer truncates longer standards. Also, the Include Inactive Standards option was not working correctly, fixed.
The 3 Cohort-related entities (Cohort, CohortStudentAssociation and CohortStaffAssociation) are now configured to be able to sync just changes to the ODS. Also, the Discipline Incident data set now includes 3 new non-required fields: Incident Time, Reported to Law Enforcement, and Weapons.

A new option has been added to this report for Elementary Schools to "Print Teacher" instead of "Print Class Times".

DecisionInsite has removed SSO functionality and so this feature has been removed from Aeries. Also, DecisionInsite address validation enhancements have been made to speed up the validation and give better messaging. Also, some incorrect addresses were giving an invalid license key error, fixed.

In period attendance schools, Attendance on the Assignment Due Date and Attendance on the Assignment Assigned Date are now using student class period instead of gradebook period to look up student attendance info.
Since the 8/8/2019 version, absence codes using "OTHER" as their description could not be changed, fixed.
