This error occurs because a student was reported as having a suspension attendance code in the CALPADS Student Attendance Summary (STAS) extract but is missing a corresponding suspension record in the CALPADS Student Incident (SINC), Student Incident Result (SIRS) and Student Offense (SOFF) extracts.

Notes: Resolve CERT errors after the EOY 2 and EOY 3 submissions (SENR, SINF, SPRG, SELA, SINC, SIRS, SOFF and STAS) files have been posted with few to no errors.  Most CERT errors are caused by file extracts that have not yet been posted error-free or from data that has not been correctly populated in Aeries.


  • If the suspension record is missing, add the corresponding suspension record.
  • If the suspension record was added, confirm that a disposition record was added with the correct dates and number or days to reflect the off campus suspension information.  
  • If the suspension record and and disposition record were added, compare the days and dates of the student's suspension attendance codes with the days and dates in the student's suspension record.  The suspension days and dates in attendance must match with the suspension days and dates in the suspension record. Update the student's attendance and suspension records to correctly reflect the suspension incident.
