    • This report logic has been adjusted to exclude pre-enrolled students when the "Include Inactives Without Attendance" option is selected.

    • (California Only) The 140 exit code has been re-added to the dropout codes that trigger the "Student has a Dropout code but has attendance data at school __" error.

    • (California Only) The age validation for TK students (5 years old or older) has been adjusted to use the Leave Date (STU.LD) instead of the current date if populated.

  • Weekly Attendance Report by Class - Adjust for Primary Class Tracking and Secondary Daily Attendance supporting Primary ADA time.

  • Add-On Graduation Reqs Setup (CA) / Graduation Endorsements Setup (TX) 

    • A new Search textbox has been added to the Course Selection window which allows users to search for Course ID or Course Title.  Also, the selected courses are now always displaying when filters are applied.

    • A new Copy Cluster button has been added to allow users to copy one or many existing clusters.

    • Also, labels are now displaying consistently between Read and Edit modes. More informative messages are being added throughout the page.  The AND and ANY buttons have been moved to their respective groups.

    • The term "Add-On Graduation Req" will now display instead of Endorsements for CA districts.
