Two emails were sent to the LEAs from Mark Masterson, ADE’s Chief Information Officer. http://www.azed.gov/information-technology/status/ One email was sent last night and the other this morning. The emails are also listed below:
Sent last night:
Dear Entity Administrator,
In the process of transitioning your LEA from SAIS to AzEDS, we have encountered a significant technical impediment. As you have been made aware, after submitting to AzEDS your data is being validated and passed to SAIS for processing. Although AzEDS is continuing to operate consistently, limitations that have existed for over 10 years with SAIS has caused that processing to come to a virtual standstill.
The issue stems from an overloaded SAIS table, which our engineers have identified as the source of the problem. Currently, our IT team is busy crafting alternative solutions so that you will see your data in SAIS as soon as possible. In the interim, our promise to you is that we will provide you with three updates a day (morning, noon and afternoon) until this issue has been resolved.
Please feel free to call me at 602-542-3542 or email me at Mark.Masterson@azed.gov with any questions or concerns. We are doing everything we can to ensure this does not happen again.
I deeply apologize for this inconvenience.

Good morning LEAs,
As of 6 a.m. this morning, SAIS processed all files that were submitted on December 2, 2015. Currently, SAIS is working at a rate of 50 minutes to an hour per file. As for AzEDS submitters, we turned off the AzEDS-to-SAIS process last night, ensuring all other records were cleared through SAIS. We will process all AzEDS files through SAIS (files submitted between December 1, 2015 at midnight through December 2, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. by this evening).
Please remember that processing through SAIS generates errors if your data is not correct. Please look at your SDDI reports under SAIS reporting to validate any errors that you might have received. With SAIS being the system of record this year, AzEDS reports are secondary.
We will run Integrity, aggregation and EOM off this SAIS data on Thursday, December 3, 2015. It will encompass all files submitted through December 2, 2015.
Our engineers are still working ardently to resolve processing time issues. We will update you this afternoon of our progress.
