Error Code 6597 should be a Warning.
Error Code 6597 is causing a lot of confusion as to why it is appearing. It would be best as a Warning, since it's purpose is to warn the districts that a student will be turning six and a new sSEPA record is due on their birthday with the new Ed Environment.
Error Code 6597 is an error as schools must take action to resolve this message. that data cannot remain as is

Change Error 6597 Invalid Environment Setting for 3-5 year old students to just a warning. This error is thrown when a student is 5 years, 11 months but a warning would do the same thing. It would still give districts the heads up that they will need to enter a new record soon with the appropriate Educational Environment code.

For Error 6597, since the validation is set to throw a month before the student turns 6, it would be nice if:
A) It was just a warning until they turn 6 and if the record isn't updated, then becomes an error or,
B) Include a column that shows the student's age so that when working on the error, can identify those that are already 6 that need to be fixed immediately.
