Rule 11621 - Missing Responsible School Transition Reason

Rule Type Advice

Validated Data

This rule is used to validate:

To perform this validation, the following information is used:

  • N/A


The student’s current responsible school record has a Transition Reason of To Be Determined.

  • “Currently responsible” means the school on the student’s latest responsible school record (based on the effective date) where the responsible school’s effective date is equal or prior to current date with a Has Responsible School = Yes.

This rule will not fail on a responsible school record that is not the current record.

This rule will not fail on a responsible school record with a null school code value.

This rule does not apply to:

  • deleted responsible school records.
  • ADLC (S.0099) or CFED (S.1363)
  • Lloydminster Public (A.3170), Lloydminster Roman Catholic (A.4870)
  • Out of Alberta - School Authority Types 20

Note: Assuming that only the responsible school processor/PASI system will ever set a responsible school record’s transition reason to “To Be Determined”, this rule only applies where the responsible school processor is being used and can be removed if and when the responsible school processor is ever disabled.

This rule sets the responsible school status record's Next Scan Date to the next future effective date of any future-dated Responsible School records for the student.

This next scan date for the responsible school record only gets updated if the responsible school record in context is considered current or future record.

Additional Notes

Expected Action: The current responsible school to assess the transition reason and update accordingly.
