Integrity Rule -20009 Updated per Legislative Change

Integrity Rule -20009 states, “Student can only have a Withdrawal Activity code of W7 (graduated) if student is in grade 9 or above.”

This rule was recently modified to pass for a Withdrawal Activity code of W7 (Graduated) if the student is enrolled grade 9 or above. Prior to this legislative change, the Withdrawal Activity code of W7 (Graduated) was only allowed if the student had an enrollment in grade 11 or above.

Self-Service Portal Link Delayed

Some changes take a while to percolate through the system, so the link for the new Self-Service Portal will not appear on the ADEConnect home screen until approximately (not precisely) 5 p.m. today. The ADEConnect portal will experience a brief outage at that time, while the link is added. Do not panic—just check back later.

Self-Service Portal Launches

In response to popular demand, and not a few support center prayers, we are launching a self-service help portal for ADE application users throughout Arizona. The portal will officially go live on Tuesday, March 7, 2017. Read on to learn more about what you can do with this powerful new tool:

  • Access the portal in one of two ways:
  • Easily navigate the portal using any web browser
    • Browse the catalog by subject
    • Search by keyword
    • Helpful hints guide you along the way
  • Find answers to your questions in the form of how-to guides, FAQs, tutorials, and technical documentation
    • Help article library for ADE applications and services, such as ADEConnect, Grants Management, or the Event Management System
    • Rate articles by usefulness and bookmark your favorites
    • Popular articles are highlighted in each catalog subject area
    • New content is added regularly
  • Submit and manage your service requests (support tickets) from within the portal
    • Create application-specific or general service requests via web form
    • View and track your own tickets, both current and past
    • While the portal is not able to show all tickets associated with an entity (school and/or LEA), we hope to include that much-requested feature in the future

ACE – Interval gap first identified in JTED membership

When a student with multiple concurrent enrollments in JTED and non-JTED school and moved from the non-JTED school to another non-JTED school, and there was a gap between the 2 non-JTED school enrollments, that gap would not be represented with the appropriate interval in ADM.

AzEDS Integrity Rule 40065 and 80028 Fixes

Rule for Special Education Service Codes

AzEDS Integrity rule -40065 validates the student need category Multiple Disabilities. For a student to be reported under the need Multiple Disabilities the student must have:

1. Two or more of needs Hearing Impairment, Moderate Intellectual Disability, Orthopedic Impairment, or Visual Impairment. Or,
2. One need from each of the following lists

a. Hearing Impairment, Moderate Intellectual Disability, Orthopedic Impairment, or Visual Impairment

b. Emotional Disability, Emotional Disability Private Placement, Mild Intellectual Disability, or Specific Learning Disability needs.

Initially students that met the rule’s scenarios were failing.   Now, students that meet the rule’s scenarios in the Multiple Disabilities interval will pass this rule.

Rule for Dropout Recovery Program Codes

A dropout recovery program is a program that enrolls students who have already dropped out of public school and provides services designed to enable them to earn a high school diploma. School districts operating these programs are expected to report student data to AzEDs in order to ensure proper funding.

AzEDS Integrity rule -80028 validates that students in the dropout recovery program must show satisfactory progress during the month a diploma is awarded.

Initially students that met the rule’s scenario of having a satisfactory record for the month the diploma was awarded. Now, students that meet the rule’s scenarios will pass this rule.

Thank you for your continued feedback and patience.
