The following are changes to CALPADS for the 2023/2024 school year. We are aware of the changes and will be working on them soon.
Refer to this document for more information on Managing Contacts - Identify Guardians for CALPADS SINF Extract.
We will provide more information and documentation as we start development.
Please be sure to express to programming that these changes for contacts must filter down to the Data Confirmation and 'Contact Management Window' functionality so that at least one Parent/Guardian contact is maintained when contacts are updated.
In the SINF flowchart, it states that if there are no contacts in CON or if the CON.FN for the first CON record is blank, that the STU.PEG and STU.PED will be extracted. With the programming be updated to not do this? For example, the students with Foster Parents, we do not list the Foster Parent names in either field for a variety of different privacy-related reasons but will have it listed in the Comments. Also, we have a few adult-aged or emancipated minors that do not have parents/guardians. What can we do in these uncommon scenarios?
Thank you, Aeries, for keeping up on these Calpads changes and for keeping us informed.
