    • The Courses tab has been modified and now has an additional area to specify which sections should be processed as Block Scheduling (full year course during the one semester). The identification of these sections is accomplished by using any of the 8 user-fields available in MST, whose value should be indicated. See Civil Rights Setup - Courses Tab 

    • Added the "Number of Incidents Committed by Student" offense table (OFFN-4) to the Results tab. The other offense tables as well as the harassment tables have been reviewed and updated.

Texas Specific

  • Texas State Reporting - PEIMS Summer extracts have been updated to support special case rules for students with ADA Eligibility codes of 0. 

Issues Resolved

  • ParentSquare - Grade alerts and weekly progress reports would send multiple times per contact, fixed.

  • Aeries Mobile API - Get User Permissions endpoint was not refreshing the password information, fixed. 

  • Student Immunization Status Report - The report displayed the deprecated IMM.SD field for Date Req. Met, fixed. Also, it now displays all Requirements Met fields.

  • Early Childhood Development - For California customers, the 9600 Application would not print for students with future start dates, fixed.

  • Texas State Reporting (For Texas customers)

    • (PEIMS Fall) - The Education Organization extension will now include Service IDs in Staff Job Assignments (STJ) with the number of students equal to zero.

Also, the Staff Associations will now limit Service IDs in Staff Job Assignments (STJ) to records active on the Snapshot Date as well. 

    • ECDS - The Student Parent file descriptions for Limited English Proficiency have been updated for the 2021-2022 school year and will use these hard-coded values rather than relying on the cross-reference table (XRF). 

    • The PEIMS Fall Student Program extract was not counting students as being in a Special Education Service if the leave date matched the Snapshot Date, fixed. 

Database Changes

  • Vaccination Requirements (VAC) - Added the Doses Req Based on Vaccine Type (TD) field.
