PSSR-266517AzEDS 2020-21: Student Contacts: Implement Support for New Core Contacts Publishing

The AzEDS 2021-22 Profile is updated to support publishing Student Contact data from the newer Core Student Contacts instead of the older AZ Contacts screens when districts are ready to make the switch.

The Start Page > District (from District Office) screen is updated to include a new 'Student Contact Adoption' link. The Student Contact Adoption screen allows users to 'flag' that they are ready to start publishing from the newer Core Student Contact tables and screens, as opposed to the older AZ Contact tables and screens.

Note: Publishing from the newer Core Student Contacts is being implemented as an 'opt-in' option, allowing district staff to validate and verify their Core Student Contacts before making the switch.
It is recommended to validate Core student contacts are correct and flag any contacts as excluded from state reporting that should not publish to AzEDS before setting the Student Contact Adoption Status to Yes at District Office.
