New Year RolloverThe New Year Rollover has been updated for the 2020-21 Rollover. The following options have been added: "Skip Free and Reduced Meals" (ROL.SFRE), "Update Student Group Staff/Students" (ROL.USG), "Copy Graduates to Inactive School" (ROL.CGS), "Copy Pre-Enrolled to Next School" (ROL.CPE), "Enable SQL Query Store" (ROL.SQS), and "Enable Row Compression Logic" (ROL.RCL). When copying custom tables defined in the Custom Table Definitions (CTD) table, Identity Columns were not being honored, fixed. The option to "Copy custom SQL modules" (ROL.CCS) will now also copy custom Indexes that were added to any table, custom or otherwise. The Rollover process will update the new year's Scheduling Type to "Flex Scheduling" if the Scheduling Setup was set for "Flex Scheduling in Next Year". When the option to "Bypass Updating Scheduled Processes" is NOT selected, Google Integration will be automatically disabled in the current year upon completion of the Rollover. Any Database Lock-Out options that were set prior to initializing the Rollover process will be reverted to their original settings upon completion, rather than being cleared. The Student Summer Scheduling Schedules Backup (SRB) table will no longer be copied during the rollover, but only during the Copy Student into Summer Schools process.
Copy Students into Summer SchoolsThe Copy Students into Summer Schools process will now copy new Summer Alternate Course Requests (SAR) over to Alternate Course Requests (ACR) new Summer Alternate Course Request Association (SAA) over to Alternate Course Request Association (ACA), similar to how Summer School Course Requests (SSR) copy over to Student Scheduling Schedules (SSS). Also added logic to copy new tables: Summer Alternate Course Requests Backup (SAB) and Summer Alternate Course Request Association Backup (BSA).
CALPADS ExtractsThe CRSC and SCSC extracts have been adjusted to support course levels "23" and "24". All course level "40" values should be updated to one of these codes.
CoursesA College State Course Code field has been added under the California Specific Fields tab. This field will only be available if the course level is "24". If it is populated, it will be used in lieu of the regular State Course Code when extracting to CALPADS for transcript records that earn college credit. This new field only shows codes for CTE and specific college credit course codes.
TranscriptsThis page has been updated to handle course levels "23" and "24". Courses with a course level of "23" will not be included in the GPA calculation. The credits will also be displayed as blank for these courses. Also, the field for Dual Enrollment Credit School will be limited to schools listed in the LOC file.
Student Transcripts reportThis report has been updated to handle course levels "23" and "24". Courses with a course level of "23" will not be included in the GPA calculation. The report will also not print credit information for these courses.
