Staff Demographics

This category captures information about staff demographic record and contains identifying information as published in the Staffs resource. The Staff Demographics category includes the following data views and resources:

Staff Demographics

This view captures the core demographic record for teachers and staff. For each staff member in the district in the current year, the layout provides the School Name, Teacher Number (PowerSchool ID), Staff Name, Gender, and PIC (Staff member's Personnel Identification Code).

Each staff member must first have an assigned Unique Person Identifier (Unique ID) in order for the staff record to be published; if needed, use the Request button to initiate the assignment of any missing Unique ID's. In turn, the publishing of all other staff-related Ed-Fi data is dependent on the successful publishing of the staff record; as needed, use the Publishing Errors data view to identify and resolve any issues.

Primary PowerSchool Source Data

  • [Users]

  • [USERSCOREFIELDS]

  • [S_NM_USR_X]

Selection Criteria

Records are published if the following criteria are met:

  • The staff's SSN must be populated in PowerSchool.

  • The staff member must not be excluded from state reporting.

  • The school must note be excluded from state reporting.

  • The staff member has at least one school enrollment with an entry date that falls on or within the date range defined by the first day and the last day for the year of the Term selected in PowerSchool.

Resource Output

  • A single Staff record is published for each staff member and teacher in the district based on the year for the Term selected in the PowerSchool UI.

  • Additional Staff elements and complex types are included in the output based on availability of the data within PowerSchool.

  • Lunch staff are excluded from publishing.

  • The Staff resource is not dependent on prior publishing of any Ed-Fi resources.

Note: After a Staff record is uploaded, it cannot be modified until a StaffSchoolAssociations record in School Associations has also been uploaded for the same staff member.

    • This establishes a relationship between the school, the associated LEA, and the staff member.

    • The LEA then has permission to modify the previously uploaded Staff record.

  • LEAs and Schools may upload (publish) data to the Ed-Fi ODS in real time or on-demand ("Run Now" button).
