Welcome to the Ed-Fi Technical Documentation home page. This site provides links to documentation and technical information for the Ed-Fi Data Standard and the Ed-Fi Technical Suite as well as information and resources for the Ed-Fi Tech Community.
The Ed-Fi Data Standard is the widely adopted, CEDS-aligned, open-source data standard developed by the educational community for the betterment of the community. The Ed-Fi Data Standard serves as the foundation for enabling interoperability among secure data systems and contains a Unifying Data Model designed to capture the meaning and inherent structure in the most important information in the K–12 education enterprise.
Ed-Fi Implementation Suite
The Ed-Fi Operational Data Store (ODS) provides a secure, transactional information store that integrates data from multiple source systems and applications. The Ed-Fi ODS API accompanies the Ed-Fi Operational Data Store and provides a developer-friendly interface to create, read, and update information stored in an Ed-Fi powered ODS.
Ed-Fi Tools aid developers implementing the technical components of the Suite.
