In the 8/24/2023 update, a new field was added to the Student Demographics page on the Student Data 2 tab for the Graduation Exemption indicator.

The CALPADS SENR extract file will be adjusted to include this new indicator. This is currently in development.

Update 9/7/2023 - The following changes were released in the 9/7/2023 update.
CALPADS Extract - The programs were updated to use the CALPADS V.15 code set for the 2023-2024 school year.
Adjustments to the CALPADS Code Set changes for 2023-24 school year will be updated in Aeries to align with the CALPADS CODE SET v15.0 document released in July 2023.
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.
Thank you so much for your readiness!!!! I look forward to receiving information about the changes that Aeries will be making.
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.
