Every month ADE uses student data submitted by LEA's to calculate Average Daily Membership (ADM). ADM is used as the basis for state aid funding. LEA's submit student data to AzEDS and ADM is calculated in the ADM Calculation Engine (ACE). The student data must reside within AzEDS on time to be included in the scheduled Integrity and ACE processing for each month’s payment. The API for FY22 will open on 6/1/2021.
