    • The Parent Education Level is now extracted from the Ed Level field on the Contacts page (CON.ELV) for both parents according to the Codes Identifying Parent/Guardian in Contacts (CON.CD) setting on District Settings, due to changes in the CALPADS state requirements. If the district setting is blank, primary contacts are extracted. See Managing Contacts/Identifying Guardians for SINF Extract.

    • Effective 9/19/2023, the Student Enrollment extract includes the new Graduation Exemption Indicator in column 1.35, indicating whether a student graduated with an exemption from local graduation requirements, which is extracted from the new Graduation Exemption field (STU.GEX) on Demographics > Student Data 2.

  • 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. It displays when the Completion Status code (STU.HSG) is populated with the Standard HS Diploma code - 100.  See CALPADS in Aeries Basics - Student Data Fields

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

  • Parent/Guardian Highest Grade Level and Name Validations - The Parent/Guardian Highest Education Level will be collected for both Parent/Guardian 1 AND Parent/Guardian 2 in the Student Information (SINF) File if both Parent/Guardian fields are populated.  The Aeries Contacts table will be used to collect this information.
