Error 6608


  • Short Text: End date of Special Education Program Association must be greater than or equal to the begin date.

  • Long Text: End date of Special Education Program Association must be greater than or equal to the begin date.


  • Business Rule Impact:

    • Calculation-- endDate precedes beginDate in the sSEPA

    • Logic-- Do not run when end date is null.


  • How to Fix: First find out if the student has a Special Education Program Association record that is still in effect. If not, remove the unnecessary dates about the sSEPA record. If the student does have a current sSEPA, verify the start and end dates and input those accurate values into your SIS, ensuring the sSEPA start date is prior to the sSEPA end date.


  • Example: Lia’s record is displaying an error regarding an invalid end date for her Special Education Program Association. District Deb digs into the matter to find out what she can about Lia’s sSEPA. According to Lia’s Special Education services team, she still has an active sSEPA record that started September 15, 2016, and ends September 14, 2017. Deb removes the old incorrect dates from Lia’s record and puts in the new dates, correcting Lia's record so that logically the sSEPA end date falls after the sSEPA begin date.
