Additional AzEDS Integrity Rules for FY20

Effective March 19th 2020, two new integrity rules will be implemented for SPED data validations in AzEDS. This is in an ongoing effort to ensure clean data within the fiscal year, and avoid corrections of data after close of the fiscal year.

SPED Rule(s):

-40073 Only SPED Exit Codes may be used to exit a SPED Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).

This rule is to ensure any exit code associated with a SPED LRE must be a SPED Exit Code. There have been previous cases where exit codes with similar exit descriptions have been reported for SPED data. Particularly

  • ELL05 Transferred to a different program
  • ELL06 End of school year

-40075 SPED Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) with Exit Code SPED07 must have enrollment end on same exit date.

This rule is to ensure student reported as dropped out from SPED are ending their enrollment on the same date. If enrollment continues after the SPED LRE then another exit code must be selected.

  • A new enrollment may be reported at the site if the student returns.

All Integrity errors can be found on the AzEDS Portal – INTEG15 Student Data Integrity Report.)

Record Level Security

Record Level Security is a security feature in AzEDS API that addresses the issue where one LEA can delete the records of another LEA. This issue typically occurs in a tuition out scenario where multiple LEAs are reporting data to AzEDS about students enrolled at some point in the fiscal year in the same private day school. This issue does not occur for student data reported at a school that is directly owned by the LEA.

Phase I of this feature is now complete and has been live since December 13, 2019. This phase enabled data submitted to AzEDS to be automatically tagged with the LEA owner ID as soon as the data is received by AzEDS. In order to ensure all records are tagged with ownership, it is recommended that LEAs resync or refresh (updating will not tag existing records) their data. The method to submit the data is dependent on your Student Information System (SIS). Each SIS vendor is aware that this process needs to take place, so if you have questions on what actions you need to take to get your data tagged, please contact your SIS vendor.

Phase II of this feature was tested and went live on February 21, 2020. Record-level security will now be enforced. Any attempts to update or delete records by a LEA that does not own that record will cause the SIS to receive an error from AzEDS.

If you have students from your LEA that are tuitioned-out to private day schools, it is highly recommended that you complete the resync or refresh of your data to get your records tagged as this will protect them from being deleted by another LEA when they try to resync their data.

AzEDS API and AzEDS Portal issues on 12/3/2019 – Now resolved.

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.
