Data Pipeline Project (ADE Replacement)


This Data Pipeline is a streamlined approach to efficiently move required education information from school districts to the Colorado Department of Education. Data Pipeline reduces data redundancy, captures closer to real-time data, streamlines the data collection process and allows districts to exchange information on transferred students.

Data Pipeline replaces the Automated Data Exchange (ADE) system, that is used for state reporting, and takes CDE from 19 point-in-time collections to six transactional interchanges, allowing local education agencies to submit data regularly to CDE and fix data errors the data as they go. The interchanges are focused on a Student Profile, Staff Profile, Organization Profile, Special Education, and Discipline. These interchanges are intended to be transactional in nature therefore allowing Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to submit data regularly to CDE and clean the data as they go.
