The SELA Import is a process in Aeries to import student's existing CALPADS Student Language Acquisition Status (ELAS) information. The Import SELA Import process will import CALPADS data into two Aeries fields. 

The fields are located on the Language form: ELAS Code (LAC.EAC) and ELAS Date (LAC.EAD).  These fields are available as read only fields in the school and district. They are informational only and can only be updated with the Import SELA process.

The data will then be evaluated when creating the Aeries SELA extract file. Students with matching data in the new CALPADS fields and in Aeries will not be extracted.

An Information icon is available that will display more information:

Note: The SELA Import should be run at the beginning of the school year before uploading the first SELA file for the year to CALPADS and periodically throughout the year. This will ensure that all students in your database have the most recent CALPADS Student Language Acquisition Status (ELAS) information.
