A patch release went out on September 29, 2018.

The patch release included updates for SIF SSDR transmission and corrections for several other issues.


  • SIF SSDR Update - DisciplineIncident object updated to export new values for AlternativeEducation element.
  • SIF SSDR Update – The Alternative Education Type field has been updated to include the 2018-2019 code values of 0-11. (Refer to DESE SSDR Handbook for more information on new codes. Link: http://www.doe.mass.edu/infoservices/data/ssdr.html) 
NOTE: The SY2019 SSDR SIF transmission requires reporting the appropriate Alternative Education Provided or Not Provided code in the Alternative Education Type field. 
ACTION REQUIRED: Users are to make adjustments to Discipline records and resend SIF objects. 
(1) Selections made in the Alternative Education Not Provided field need to be made in the updated Alternative Education Type field. iPass will continue to display the Alternative Education Not Provided field so that users can identify which selection should now be made in the Alternative Education Type field.
(2) After step 1 above is completed, use Delete SIF Temp Table to clear the DisciplineIncident Objects and use SIF - Send Objects to send updated DisciplineIncident Objects to DESE.
