Release Note

PSSR-312958ECDS PK Data Collection and Interchange Updates

TX Interchange Student Enrollment: Version 23.3.2

TX Interchange Student Parent: Version 23.3.2

Updates for the ECDS PK Collection are now available.

  • The ECDS Student Assessment Dates page under the State/Province TX link has been removed. These fields are no longer applicable, and logic related to these fields has also been removed from the Student Enrollment Interchange.
  • The Student Parent Interchange is updated to ensure that the conditional parameters for this collection display as expected.
  • Consideration of the PK School Type Override in Sections is now restored in Student Enrollment. If populated, this value is reported; otherwise the school-level or district-level default values are reported.
  • The Interchange queries are simplified and tuned to improve performance.
PSSR-315505Incident Management TEA Discipline Edits Validation Report Updates

Incident Management TEA Discipline Edits Validation Report: Version 23.3.2
The report is updated to prevent false positives for TEA Business Rule 44425-0016. If Action Code is 01, 05, 25, 27, 28, 29, or 50, Campus of Assignment must be blank. When an incident contains multiple actions, either for the same student or different students, errors are no longer flagged for action codes other than those listed in the TEA edit. In addition, the layout of the PDF has been improved.

PSSR-316645Incident Management Validations for PowerSchool SIS 22.12 or Later

A technical change first introduced in PowerSchool SIS version 22.12 caused the Texas data entry validations on the Incident Management pages to stop working. This impacts districts currently running core PowerSchool SIS version 22.12, 23.1, 23.2 or 23.3. This does not impact districts with earlier SIS versions.

  • The validations are now updated to ensure the error messages display as expected for missing fields or invalid combinations of codes based on the TEA business rules.
  • Important: As incidents may have been entered without the Texas validation checks, we recommend that districts run the Incident Management TEA Discipline Edits Validation Report to identify any records that may need correction.
PSSR-314866Incident Management Verification Report Updates

Incident Management Verification Report: Version 23.3.2

Updates are now available to provide additional information about each incident.

    • Created by: Staff member who created the incident
    • Created On: date/timestamp
    • Last Modified by: Staff member who modified the incident
    • Modified On: date/timestamp
  • The order of Campus of Assignment and Campus of Responsibility are adjusted to reflect the order of the fields as they appear on the Action record page.
  • Three new columns are added to the end of the CSV file to display additional Action Attributes.
    • E1656 Inconsistent Code Conduct
    • E1734 Safe Team Review
    • E1725 Non-Membership Disc Ind
  • The source fields for Campus of Assignment and Campus of Responsibility are updated to ensure these values are reported if entered in the incident.

TEA Discipline Records Verification Report: Version 23.3.2

TX Interchange Student Discipline: Version 23.3.2

The logic related to the output of the new Safe Supportive School Program Team Review element in the StudentDisciplineIncidentAssociation complex is updated to ensure that the complex is reported only once per student and per incident, even if the student has multiple actions.

  • This element is reported with a value of 0 or 1 as coded in the Action Attribute record when the action results in ISS, OSS or Placement in a DAEP or JJAEP
  • Action Codes: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 25, 26, 51, 52, 53, 54, 60
  • If the student is not assigned one of the above actions, the Safe Supportive School Program Team Review element is suppressed.
