Ed-Fi RFC Home


This site contains resources, links, draft technical material, and draft documentation for the Ed-Fi Data Standard Request for Comments (RFC) process.

This space has not been actively maintained for the past few years and some of the content may be outdated. The Ed-Fi Alliance is actively working to revamp the content over the course of the next few months. Please reach out to us if you have any questions in the meantime and we will try to help clarify and/or expedite updates to particular RFC documents.

Community feedback is critical to the RFC process, and the Alliance welcomes feedback from anyone.

Feedback does not need to be long or comprehensive. It is enough to cite a particular K–12 use case where the technology would or would not be able to represent a common scenario. However, if readers have more lengthy written feedback, existing reports or alternative fully articulated data models, please feel free to share those.

The primary mechanism for feedback is via the Ed-Fi Community Hub. Community members can view existing feedback here: http://tracker.ed-fi.org/projects/EDFI/ (login not required). When entering a feedback ticket, please reference the RFC number, change, or specific fix on which you are commenting, if applicable.

If you need an account for the Tracker, please go to http://www.ed-fi.org/access-request/ (note the Getting Involved and Contributing if you are curious about what Ed-Fi Alliance services you can access).

Community discussion is also welcome via Ed-Fi Slack.
