Aeries Development Roadmap:
Summer is approaching and just as schools have been working for months in preparation for the new school year, we here at Aeries Software have been working hard to make sure great new features are available in Aeries for the new school year. Here are some highlights of what is coming up:
With the introduction of CCPT funding, College and Career Readiness has been injected with new life across the state. To match these new programs and reporting requirements, Career Pathway management in Aeries is being revamped. Aeries has been working with the top minds in the Career Pathway industry to build this next generation system.
Developers have been hired at Aeries to focus on a new set of Aeries apps for office staff, teachers, and students. Be on the lookout for these apps this coming school year.
At the last two Aeries Users' Conferences we highlighted the new development we've been working on to bring you inter-district records transfer of student records. Early adopters will begin early next school year testing the new system and by the end of next school year, all Aeries districts will be invited to join the largest group of districts in the state exchanging student records!
We continue to partner with the best systems and solutions in the education industry to bring you a fully integrated and seamless data sharing solution. The Aeries API continues to be expanded at the request of our 3rd Party Solution Vendors.
Multi-Year Security Management
Aeries security is being streamlined to manage all users, groups and permissions from a single location. No more worrying about creating or adjusting accounts in different school years.
Aeries Web Environment
The Web-Based version of Aeries (commonly known as "Aeries.net") is becoming the primary solution for schools and districts. The 16-17 school year will bring critical functionality to this environment that is no longer available in the Aeries Client. This includes the creation of CALPADS Extracts and the Loading of SBAC/CAASPP data.

Standards-Based Report Cards
We continue to expand on our industry-leading standards-based report cards with a new "Templates" feature that will let you create an unlimited number of report card layouts as you prepare for the next school year. Many other great new grading features are also coming to this area.
Aeries Communication Package Powered By Loop™
We are proud to partner with the most forward-thinking communications solution on the market, Loop™. This partnership brings a new and unique communication offering that is fully integrated into Aeries. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Account Management in Apple, Google and Microsoft
Education Platforms are quickly becoming the most important part of a school's IT infrastructure. To make this process easier, Aeries has been working with Apple, Google and Microsoft to streamline student and staff account management. We already brought you Google Account and Google Classroom integration earlier this year. Our Office 365 integration is currently being beta tested and we are developing Active Directory and other Microsoft Azure integrations.
The biggest news in this area is our partnership with Apple to bring streamlined Student Apple ID creation of management to Aeries districts this summer. Early adopter districts will be the first in the world to automate student Apple ID account management from a student information system!
