The AzEDS database server experienced an issue yesterday evening around 4pm. This impacted the API, AzEDS Portal reports and the nightly Integrity and ACE processes. The server issue has been resolved. Our initial analysis of the database that receives data from LEAs does not show any data loss. We encourage you to continue your data submissions as usual.
Due to the outage the AzEDS Integrity and ACE nightly processes did not run last night. They will run today at 6pm as scheduled.
The ESS Parent Involvement Survey Application is now available via ADEConnect. For a user to obtain access to the application, the ESS Parent Survey: User role needs to be assigned by an ADEConnect entity administrator.
The ESS Parent Survey: User role grants the following permissions within the ESS Parent Involvement Survey application for the assigned entities (LEAs or schools):
- View a list of students whose parents are eligible to take the Parent Involvement Survey; organized by school
- View a list of students who are 18 years of age or older
- View a list of students who are 18 years of age or younger
- Download student lists in Excel format
For additional information about the user role, please contact the ADEConnect Help Desk.
For questions about the Parent Involvement Survey, please contact Becky Raabe.
By way of information, the following applications have been renamed as indicated:
- ESS EDP and Approved Private Day School is now ESS Private Day and RTC Approval
- ESS Funding and Maintenance of Effort (MoE) is now ESS Maintenance of Effort
All ADE applications and websites are scheduled for offline maintenance on Saturday, 8/5. Maintenance should be complete by 4 p.m. During the maintenance window, AzEDS and related services will be intermittently unavailable.
ADE Acceptable Use Policy
All users who access ADEConnect will be required to accept the ADE Acceptable Use Policy agreement on a yearly basis within the ADEConnect application. This impacts all users: Student Information System (SIS), and ADEConnect direct sign-in users.
The first page that displays in ADEConnect will be the Acceptable Use Policy with an active I Accept button at the end of the page. Once clicked, the ADEConnect home page will display where you can access the ADE applications as usual.
Reports for Admins
With the new school year upon us, you may need to update staff members’ access to applications in ADEConnect. To assist you in the assignment of the appropriate ADE roles for your staff, ADEConnect now includes reports listing all application roles, their descriptions, and the specific application names the roles provide access to via ADEConnect. The reports can be found under the Reports tab on the ADEConnect home page and the Reports link on the Entity Administration home page.
Don’t Forget: Training Videos and Quick Reference Guides (QRGs)

And I’m sure you did, but the Entity Admin Application only removes the account and roles at one specific Parent Entity or Related Organization. There is no bulk removal of user accounts. We won’t assume you are removing the account from all organizations just because you want to remove it from one organization.
What’s this new User Change Log and what will it do for me?
Ah, great question!
The User Change Log lets you see all recent activity performed for the users of an active Parent Entity or Related Organization. The catch here is you must be the Entity Administrator on that Parent Level or Related Organization to see the activity. Security is important, after all!
I don’t understand the new field named “Account Status”.
If the ADEConnect user is not a student information system (SIS) user and the status field displays as “Pending” or “Expired”, then no ADEConnect password has been set up by the user. So you, the Entity Administrator, can remind the user to set up their account.
If the ADEConnect user is a SIS user, then the status will display as “Active” because their passwords are maintained in the SIS, not through ADEConnect.
