There have been several enhancements made to separate out Local Credits from other State Credits for Texas districts. Currently any course that has a blank Service ID field (CRS.SVC) that either starts with an 8, or is blank, credits earned for those courses are listed as local credits, however they are not separated out from other credits attempted or received. A new option has been enabled to allow more flexibility in assigning Local Credits.
In order to perform the setup necessary, users must have Update permission to the Update Requirements Table (REQ).
In order to use this new option, one or more Subject Areas must be designated as a Local Credit Subject Area in the Graduation Requirements page at the individual school level. The page can be found at Grade Reporting > Configurations > Graduation Requirements. For more detailed information on the functions of the Graduation Requirements page, see Graduation Requirements.xxx
- Multiple Subject Area Codes can be designed as Local Credit Subject Area codes if desired. Refer to the document linked above is more subject area codes are needed.
NOTE: When this option is enabled on the default transcript, if the school wishes to have it also apply to other Graduation Tracks, the option must be set on those other Graduation Tracks by selecting them from the dropdown list at the top of the page, and setting the option there also.
