2016-2017 SDA File Layout - CSI Additions


The following business rule Excel file is a CSI modified versions of CDE's documents.  This document lists all the errors that schools may have in their SDA error reports.  The rightmost column of the file contains suggestions from CSI on fixing errors.  This is a work in progress in 16-17 and schools should check back now and then for updated versions (we anticipate making updates until the 16-17  submission finally closes at the end of the 2017 calendar year).
