Elementary Schools do not need to use a Master Schedule for CALPADS Reporting. The appropriate CALPADS- Specific fields are also available on the Elementary Teachers form.
The Master Schedule page can be accessed on the navigation tree under Scheduling Process for secondary schools.
|Aeries Field Name||Aeries Table.Field|
|Section Number||MST.SE||09.14||Course Section ID|
|Semester||MST.SM||09.15||Academic Term Code||CALPADS Code Set: Academic Term|
|Period, Semester, Days of the Week||MST.PD, MST.SM, MST.DY||09.18||Class ID||This field is built during the extract using information from many fields. This CALPADS field is used to associate multiple sections as being part of the same "Class" for purposes of determining Average Class Size.|
|Master Schedule School||MST.SCL||Master Schedule School||The CRSE/CRSC and SCSE/SCSC extracts will skip MST sections that have a "School" value populated that doesn't match the current school. This will allow schools to properly track courses being taken by their students at other educational institutions without impacting CALPADS reporting. |
|Class ID||MST.CID||09.18||Class ID||The Master Schedule Section Class ID field (MST.CID) can be used to link sections together in the CRSE extract. This will impact the CALPADS 3.1 Class Size - By Content Area Report for classes that are combined into one class with the same teacher, time and location but different section numbers. Ex: French 3 and 4 are separate sections but can be linked together by populating the MST.CID field on both sections with the same value, i.e. 100.|
|Teacher Number(s)||MST.TN, MST.TN2, MST.TN3||For Team Teaching or Job Sharing situations, you must populate the additional Teacher Number fields.|
|Multiple Teacher Status||MST.MTS||09.25||Multiple Teacher Code|
If multiple teachers are assigned to a class, you must populate these fields with code 01 or 02 to represent the way teachers are working together. Code 09 can be used to identify those classes that have more than one teacher, but they are not to be extracted with a multiple teachers status code.
*Flex Scheduling - The process is handled differently in Flex Scheduling schools. See Flex Scheduling for details.
|Highly Qualified Teacher||MST.HQT||09.28||HQT Competency Code||CALPADS has retired this code set. Civil Rights is still collecting for the 15- 16 school year reporting.|
All sections associated with "NCLB Core Courses" must have each teacher assignment populated with a Highly Qualified value. The CALPADS Codes for this field differ from those codes used in the past so be sure to verify your data is populated correctly. This information can optionally be populated in the STH (Staff Highly Qualified) table. And then by using the "Populate MST HQT from STH" Macro, the fields in the Master Schedule will get populated. This does require that you have the NCLB Core Area populated on the Courses form.
