  • Campus Student & Campus Parent Updates (SIS-123615) [Enhancement] 

    The User Account Batch Wizard has been updated to include an option for updating student and parent home pages. When 'Update Home Page' is selected as the Change Type, student and parent home pages will be updated from the Portal to the new Campus Student and Campus Parent portals. Users are assigned a home page of Campus Student if they have an enrollment, including emancipated students with a guardian relationship to themselves and students who are also parents. Users are assigned a home page of Campus Parent if they have a Relationship to a student with Guardian or Portal marked, including former students who are now parents. This conversion affects all portal accounts, not just active ones.

    Additionally, the following updates have been made to Campus Student and Campus Parent:

    • Preparation work for translations, which will be available in a future release of Campus Student and Campus Parent.
    • When a user clicks a notification from the bell icon, they are routed to the related screen, such as assignments or grades.
    • Issue fixed in which exempt absences were counted differently than they were in the previous Portal.
    • Notifications are no longer sent for assignments in which the student is marked as exempt.
    • Notifications are no longer sent for food service balances if the preference is set to off.
    • 'Multiple Scores' no longer displays for unscored assignments that have multiple alignments.

    • When printing the Standards Based Report Card, the list of standards now includes the course and section in which the student was graded if that standard is scored in more than one course.
    • When creating a new report card or editing an existing report card, the Attendance Summary section needs to be selected. Previously, this option was automatically selected.

      Conventional Report Card Options
       
    • The Report on Terms radio buttons have been changed to checkboxes, allowing selection of multiple terms. The option to exclude previous terms has been removed.

      Standards Based and Conventional Report Card Options
       
    • When only one term is selected for Attendance Summary printing, no total column of attendances is listed on the printed report card. A total column only displays when more than one term is selected. This also applies to Attendance Messenger.
    • The label for Attendance Summary on the printed report card now prints as Attendance Summary by Term.
    • A new Tasks to Display section has been added that includes the option to print All Standards and Tasks (graded and ungraded grading tasks and standards) or Graded Standards and Tasks Only (only prints grading tasks and standards that have scores).
    • When printing a report card for only In-Progress Grades, only the calculated in-progress grade displays, even when a posted score has been entered for the selected task in that term.

      Also note that when a report is rolled forward into a new or another calendar, the Term Schedule Name, the Schedule Structure Name and the number of Terms must match between the calendars in order for terms to be selected on the new report.
