This error occurs because a student who has an enrollment record must have attendance data reported.


Do not address ANY CERT errors until after the enrollment updates (SENR, SINF, SELA and SPRG) files, the absence summary and student discipline (STAS and SDIS) files have been posted with few to no errors.  The probable cause of most CERT errors is due to file extracts that have not yet been posted error-free.   The second most likely cause of CERT errors results from data that has not been correctly populated in Aeries.

Resolution:

  • Is Attendance History Configured?
  • Is Attendance History updating nightly? 
  • To setup Attendance History, see:  Attendance History Configuration
  • Confirm attendance data exists for the student.
  • Confirm attendance history data exists for the student.
  • The CALPADS options may be excluding the student.  Check the following:
    • In Other Options, does the student have a tag value (STU.TG) that is being skipped?
    • In Other Options, does the student have a program value (STU.SP) that is being skipped?
    • In Other Options, does the student have a tag value (STU.TG) that is being skipped?
    • Check to see if the student is erroneously tagged as a short term enrollment?  
    • In the Schools tab, is the school selected?
