Each credentialed staff members' years of educational service should be recorded in their Staff record. This data is reported to CALPADS. Aeries provides a process for updating Staff members' Total Years of Edu Service and Total Years in This District fields, in order to keep it current. This process should be run once per year.
Filter Pages by "staff" or navigate to School Info > Staff to see a Staff form.
The incrementation process is available on the Other Demographics tab on every Staff record, but is only visible if the user has the correct permissions. A user needs Update permissions to the STF table in order to increment staff members' years fields (Total Years of Edu Service and Total Years in This District). Without Update permissions, the Update Totals button will not be visible on the Other Demographics tab on a Staff form:
Click the Update Totals button to see the Calculate Time in Service popup:
Three options are available:
- Click on Just This One to increment the Total Years of Edu Service and Total Years in This District for only the staff member viewed on the Staff form when the Update Totals button was clicked.
- Click on All Staff in School to increment the Total Years of Edu Service and Total Years in This District for all staff members in the school. Please note that if you are logged in at the District level, the process will update for all staff members in the District.
- Click Cancel to abandon the process.
When the years fields are incremented, the Date Years Incremented field is updated to the current date.
The incrementation process follows logical rules in order to prevent unwanted updating:
- If a staff member's Date Years Incremented field is within the past nine months, the years fields will not be incremented. A warning popup will be displayed:
- If the years fields are zero (0), and the Leave Date is blank, the years will be calculated based on the Hire Date.
- If a staff member's Leave Date is before the current date AND before the Date Years Incremented, that staff member's years fields will not be incremented.
- If a staff member's Date Years Incremented field is more than nine months in the past and the years fields are not zero, the years fields will be incremented by 1.
Note: if the process incorrectly calculates a staff member's years fields, the fields can be manually changed to the correct number. These fields should be reviewed for accuracy by LEA personnel who track credentialed employee data.
To update a staff members' fields manually, navigate to the correct Staff record. Click Change, update one or both fields, and click Update. The Date Years Incremented field will reflect the date of the change.
