Automatic Group and Membership Assignment
If your district was using the original COVID-19 Attendance Process for recording attendance for students in the 2020-21 school year BUT Blended Learning Groups have NOT been created, one Blended Learning Group will be created automatically and all students enrolled in a calendar with Enable Covid-19 assignment insert marked will be assigned to that new group.
In addition, that automatic group, COVID-19 Attendance, is also associated with every attendance day in the affected calendar, accounting for all dates prior to taking this update. Students in calendars that do not have the COVID-19 Attendance assignments enabled will not be placed in the group.

Parents can use their student(s) barcode to make Food Service purchases by using the student selector then going to the Today page for each student.
As part of this new feature, a new checkbox called "Display Food Service PIN Barcode on Today screen" was added to the Display Options tool in the Portal Preferences. The new checkbox is not automatically selected. To make the barcode display in Campus Student/Parent, mark the new checkbox. Turning this preference on also makes student's barcodes available in Campus Student/Parent. Campus only displays a barcode if the student is enrolled in a school that has the preference turned on.

Ohio – EMIS
Several updates have been made to the Ohio Individual Education Plan:
Additional validation has been added to the Exemptions editor.
A bug where a person completing an amendment would override all previous people who made amendment modifications has been fixed. The name of the person who last modified each editor displays regardless of who completes the amendment.
Previously, the Start Date populated on the OH Extracts editor reverted to the default date if the user changed the print format of the extract. The Extract Editor has been update where the Start Date populates based on the Reporting Period selected.
The GY assessment in the FA extract has been updated so that if Score Not Reported is X, the Scale Score reports the default value.
Field logic for the Score Not Reported field in the FA extract has been updated to report as follows for the GY assessment:
If Score Not Reported is a value other than * or X, reports as ***.
Otherwise, logic looks at the Assessment Code. If it begins with 3 alphabetic characters, the field reports differently based on when the student took the test. If that student's result is A, N, or P and the Test Date is on or after 4/1/2020, the Result reports. If the student's result is not A, N, or P and the Test Date is before 4/1/2020, the Scale Score reports. If the Assessment Code ends with two alphabetic characters, field logic is unchanged.
