A field has been added to the Master Schedule (MST) and Scheduling Master Schedule (SMS) page for the use of tracking Primary Classes for students in elementary schools using flex. This field (MST.PC or SMS.PC) has a checkbox and when enabled, will identify the section as a Primary class on a student's schedule. This is an indicator that the teacher has this section designated as a Primary Class.
Navigate to Master Schedule or Scheduling Master Schedule. The Primary Class field is located on the top line to the left of the Flex Period. Select this checkbox to indicate this section is a primary class. An example of a primary class would be Course Kinder or 1st Grade Core.

Section Selection Control ↑
The Section Selection Control has been modified to include an option for filtering the Primary Class indicator. This impacts several pages and reports throughout Aeries. When Only Primary Classes is checked, only classes that have the Primary Class indicator will display in the window. Additional filters are available and will filter based on any selection. For example, if teacher 'Anderson' is selected and Only Primary Classes is checked, then only classes that Anderson has that are identified as a Primary Class will display in the box to the right.
Tables and Query ↑
The PC field has been added to the MST, SMS and the SMB tables.
|MST||Primary Class (PC)||Field can be enabled by selecting the checkbox|
|SMS||Primary Class (PC)||Field can be enabled by selecting the checkbox|
|SMB||Primary Class (PC)||The Primary Class (SMB.PC) field is included in the backup and restore process.|
When querying the PC field, the value will be stored as a 0 if the field is unchecked, and 1 if the field is marked as a Primary Class. The 1 always translates to a 'true' value.
NOTE: Prior to using the Primary Class indicator, the school setting must be enabled in School Options and is only available for a Flex Scheduling school type with the Staff ID Based Counselor Option enabled.
