IMPORTANT: New “Active” and “Special education” checkboxes have been added on the student setup page. These checkboxes will now determine if the student record is active or inactive.  The evaluation status (SEES) and the status end code dropdowns will remain but will no longer determine if the student is active or inactive.  The new checkboxes will be utilized throughout the system to establish student status, including on student lists, dashboards and reports. Here is a short video indicating the changes:
