The Arizona Education Data Standards (AzEDS) system will begin collecting an extension of parent information starting in the fiscal year 2024. This additional information is a flag on parent data submitted into AzEDS that identifies the parent as an Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) parent. This flag should be marked for parents who meet the definition outlined in 34 CFR § 300.30. In the upcoming school year and moving forward, Exceptional Student Services will require public education agencies (PEAs) to indicate an IDEA parent for the dates of any special education program submitted into AzEDS (excluding ancillary services).
