Ed-Fi: Calendar Sessions Error on the Dashboard

The logic for publishing Calendar Sessions has been updated to take the sessions into consideration in cases where the session has been mapped to a published grading period.


Ed-Fi: Exclude from Ed-Fi Option Needed for Courses and Sections

The option to exclude a course or section from Ed-Fi has been added, and records will be published or excluded based on the following logic:

  • Courses set to be excluded are not published unless one or more active sections are set to be included.

    • If one or more sections are set to be included, both the course and the appropriate section records are published, regardless of the value set at the course level. This is done to prevent publishing dependencies from occurring.

  • Sections set to be excluded are not published, regardless of the value set at the course level.

  • Sections set to a value of “Same As Course” are excluded or included based solely on the setting at the Course level.


Event Minutes was Wrongly Published as a Mandatory Field in calendarDates Resource

In cases where the value for Event Minutes is null, the value is not included in the published record.


LM Tab - 'Instrument Used' Option List Update

The ‘Instrument Used’ option list on the student’s LM tab drop-down is updated to pull from the list of descriptors used in Ed-Fi. You may need to download the latest descriptors for this to work as expected.​


Student Programs: Updated logic for deriving values and for displaying dependencies.

The following updates have been made to the Student Programs publishing logic:

  • Dependencies are generated only for active students.

  • Dependencies are generated only for the student's enrolled schools.

  • A Student Program record is published for each enrollment that falls within the current school year.

    • Values for each record are derived from the respective enrollment, including the Begin Date and End Date.

    • The access school override is considered where appropriate.


‘Exclude from State Reporting’ Value for Staff Was Not Saving as Expected

The “Exclude from State Reporting' flag now saves as expected, and the stored value is visible when returning to the page.
