In order to report the Independent Study sections correctly to CALPADS, only Independent Study students should be enrolled in an Independent Study section. A value of "Y" in the Independent Study Indicator (MST.ISI) field will report the section as Independent Study in the CALPADS extract.
From Scheduling Process on the Navigation tree click on Master Schedule and the following form will display.
Note: A new field has been added, when enabled on the School Settings page, to Allow Individual Sections to be Flagged for Alt Ed Scheduling. This new setting will allow sections in a traditional high school to be flagged as an Alternative Education section. Please see the following document for more information: Alt Ed Scheduling for Individual Sections.
