You might get errors such as Error 1630 in your census if you've not recorded an Ethnicity for a student - Pupil's ethnicity is missing or invalid.
You might also get this Arbor error if the system is unable to assume that the Ethnicity has been provided by the child or their guardian.
This error usually appears if no ethnicity has been specified, as the system can't assume an ethnicity source, but it can also appear if you've got a student with an invalid ethnicity source.
Resolving errors for multiple students
The quickest way to fix these errors for more than one student is to use the bulk edit page. Go to Students > All Students > Bulk Update > Basic Student Details.
Select the students with missing ethnicities, then click the blue pencil icon and choose Bulk Edit Ethnicity.
In the slide over, select the Ethnicity of these students, then click the green button to save your changes.
Once you've regenerated your census, your missing ethnicity source Arbor error will also be resolved, as the system will assume it has come from the guardian (C) or the student (P).
If the student has an ethnicity assigned but you're still getting an error, you may need to change the ethnicity source. To do this, select the students then click the blue pencil icon and choose Bulk Edit Ethnicity Source.
In the slide over, select the ethnicity source, then click the green button to save your changes. Once you've regenerated your census, your ethnicity source Arbor error will be resolved.
Resolving errors for one student
To resolve the Arbor error, you can click it and update the information in the slide over.
You can also go to the student's Student Profile and add the missing information into their Identity section. Click this field, then click the Edit button.
Choose the Ethnicity and the system will assume the ethnicity code is P or C unless you select otherwise.
