eSchoolPlus Release

New Features



Behavior Building Configuration

This release includes the Enabled Editing of Teacher Referrals checkbox in the Behavior Building Configuration page to allow administrators to edit the TAC referral. If this feature is enabled, the administrators can edit the Location and Referral Notes entered by the teacher for a Behavior Referral in TAC. 

Disciplinarian Notification for Referral Entries

This release includes the Disciplinarian Notification for Referral Entries as an option for alerts in TAC. When a teacher enters a new Conduct Referral from the Interventions menu, this alert will trigger the new Conduct Referral Entered Notification process.

Performance Matters - eSchoolPlus Integration

An enhancement to the eSchoolPlus Teacher Access Center (TAC) integration with Performance Matters (PM) is now available.

The TAC Building Configuration now provides an option to allow Teachers to edit assignments created in Performance Matters including the scores and comments in TAC. After integration with Performance Matters (PM) is enabled in the District configuration, the Allow Teachers to Edit Performance Matters Assignments checkbox is displayed in the Gradebook panel of the TAC Building Configuration page. This field is used to set whether the building allows Teachers to edit assignments and scores in TAC that were previously posted from PM. This allows teachers to adjust assignments and scores within TAC to ensure proper calculations in the TAC gradebook, however, assignments and scores edited in TAC will be overwritten by any subsequent post from PM for that assignment.

If the TAC Building Configuration is set to allow Teachers to change the publish option, they will now be able to publish assignments and scores added from Performance Matters or other products regardless of whether the assignments and scores may be maintained in TAC.

Enrollment - eSchoolPlus Integration

An enhancement to the eSchoolPlus integration with PS Enrollment is now available.

The Enrollment Form from PS Enrollment can now include the Gender Identity field to be passed into eSchoolPlus. When the Gender Identity field is included, the field will validate against the eSchoolPlus Gender Identity validation table and add the changed value to eSchoolPlus through the existing Integration.

When adding a student through Enrollment and the form includes a Gender Identity field:

  • If the student does not have a value in the Gender Identity field on their Enrollment form, the Gender Identity value in eSchoolPlus will default the value to the Gender value.

  • If the student does have a value in the Gender Identity field on their Enrollment form, that value will be used to set the Gender Identity value in eSchoolPlus.

When adding a student through Enrollment and the form does not include a Gender Identity field:

  • The Gender Identity value in eSchoolPlus will default the value to the Gender value.

When Gender Identity is provided through Enrollment:

  • The value will be validated and updated in eSchoolPlus.

When Gender Identity is not provided through Enrollment:

  • If the Gender Identity and Gender fields matched in eSchoolPlus previously, and if the Gender field is changed in Enrollment, the Gender Identity field will be updated to match.

  • If the Gender Identity and Gender fields did not match in eSchoolPlus previously, the Gender Identity field will not be updated.

Resolved Issues

The following issues were resolved in this release.

Reference Number



ESP-71181Teacher Assignment

In the Teacher Assignment for student competencies, students who transferred buildings with the same competency code assigned manually versus by criteria were not able to be assigned. This has been resolved.

ESP-70941Attendance View Setup

Improved performance on Attendance View Setup Search/List page by modifying the processing that determines if a record can be deleted based on whether that record’s code is in use. The page now loads all of the used records once instead of loading data for each code present on the page.

ESP-70636Medication Log

If the student has existing records in the Medication Log, and the user selects all the rows including a blank row or even a partially entered row to Delete and then Save, the process validates the blank rows and does not save the records. This has been resolved.

ESP-70408Trends by Period (Detail)

The Trends by Period (Detail) reports were not retrieving all applicable absences for a student when the student changed calendars multiple times in the same building during the school year. This has been resolved.

ESP-69541Validate Immunizations

The Validate Immunizations option was calculating the student’s age as of the current date instead of the prompted calculation date. This has been resolved. 

ESP-68868Student Medication Log

When accessing the student’s medication log, an error occurred if the student had thousand of records. This has been resolved. 

ESP-68467Honor Roll Calculation

The Honor Roll Calculation does not process an Honor Roll Setup if it is marked as Inactive. The calculation is updated for existing records and not for inactive honor rolls.

Note that the single-student calculation has not yet been updated and will be completed in a future release.

ESP-68172Transcript Course Summary (Courses - GPA Calculation checkbox)

When transfer courses were added with multiple years, and the GPA checkbox was selected on Save, it was only processing the current RC run/term, based on the MR building config. This has been resolved to processes everything for prior years - using the Everything through the prompted RC Run/Term/Year option as checked. The following pages were affected:

  • Transcript Course Summary - Course detail
  • Transcript Course Summary - Transfer Buildings - Courses detail
  • Report Card Summary - Course detail
ESP-67588TAC Attendance Bulletin

When loading the Attendance Bulletin (for buildings, students, and classes) in TAC, an error was occurring if the building, student, and class information resulted in loading thousands of records. This has been resolved.

ESP-67268Transcript Summary - Transfer Buildings

When entering transfer buildings, if you double-clicked on the Save button, it would create 2 records for the transfer building and will print twice on the transcript. This has been resolved.

ESP-67246TAC Gradebook

When Do Not Show option is selected in the Gradebook, all withdrawn students were displayed if the student had a future withdrawal data. The past withdrawal data should not be displayed except the future withdrawal data. This has been resolved.

ESP-65313Report Card Summary

The apartment (APT) details was printing incorrectly using the default template in two lines due to word wrap function. This has been resolved.

ESP-60149Report Card by Competency Group

Users with Read access to all Mark Reporting functionality (MR-ALL-ALL), were not able to access Report Card by Competency Group page (which requires Read access for MR-MAINT-CMPMARKS). This has been resolved.

ESP-55157Attendance Error Scan

If the student's calendar does not exist in the MBS building where the student is taking courses, the error scan sees this as invalid attendance and deletes the attendance. This has been resolved.

ESP-49108HAC Week View

When a marking period is ending and the next marking period is starting mid-week, the absence marked during that week was displaying for all the courses which had the same period. This has been resolved.

ESP-48937Scheduled Course Load/Unload/Lock/Erase

Corrected an issue where the Mass Unload Scheduled Courses task was changing an overridden first marking period for a student’s course if the current value was set to null because of being set to the first marking period the course meets. The Mass Unload task was mistakenly interpreting a null value to be based on the first marking period based on the student’s add date.
