Lunch Balance NotificationsThis 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.
ContactsDistricts 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.
CALPADS ExtractsThe 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.
Special EducationA new Post-Secondary / Transition Status field (CSE.PSI) has been added to this page (both the Old and New versions).

Also, the user interface has been updated with more current styles.
