Error 6499

  • Short Text: Credential type and resource, 'student Academic Record', are not expected.


  • Long Text:

    Credential type and resource, 'studentAcademicRecord', are not expected. Credential type is not expected when an exit type of HSC (High School Completion) isn't found for the school referenced in the credential (diploma record). The student Academic Record should be submitted only for high school completers.


  • Business Rules:

    • Calculation--

      Exit Type = not HSC AND StudentAcademicRecord JSON Resource Is submitted
    • Logic-- This rule is ONLY for CHOICE for the scenario where the exit type is NOT HSC and the student Academic Record is submitted. (3) This rule is not run for Possible Full-Term Dropout (FTD) records.


  • How to Fix: Verify whether or not the student in question completed high school. If so, determine what kind of credential type the student obtained upon completion and modify the Exit Type to HSC,  High School Completion. If the current exit type is correct and the student did not complete high school, remove the Credential Type, so it doesn’t mismatch with the fact that the student did not complete high school.


  • Example: Noel’s record displays an error that his credential type isn’t expected. District deb digs into the matter to find Noel finished his junior year to study abroad for his senior year of high school. He has an appropriate junior year exit code of TOS, but someone accidentally entered that he already obtained a Diploma. Deb verifies that Noel has not yet completed high school or obtained a diploma. To clear the error, Deb removes the Credential Type value.
