Will Arizona use AzEDS and Ed-Fi in the 2015-2016 school year?

The short answer: Yes
The long answer: On October 19, 2012, the Arizona Data Governance Commission directed the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) to use Ed-Fi as the Agency’s internal physical data model. The agency has committed to fully implementing AzEDS by July 1, 2015; therefore, all LEAs must be AzEDS compliant by that date to meet the Data Governance Commission’s mandate.

Will SAIS be completely replaced?

Short Answer: Yes
Long Answer: Yes, existing SAIS processing will continue to operate during the transition to the Ed-Fi standard, but as of July 1, 2015, SAIS will no longer be available and all data must be submitted via the AzEDS REST API. Please see the Technical Information for Vendors and LEAs section at for more information.
