Business Rules (troubleshooting errors)

Each year the CDE publishes their Business Rules for the Discipline Interchange and the Special Education Discipline snapshot. It lists all possible errors, warnings, and their respective descriptions that could occur when a collection is uploaded to Data Pipeline. In order to facilitate understanding and resolution of errors, CSI adds troubleshooting information to this document for our schools to reference. This document will be updated throughout the collection, as needed, to reflect any learned insights and guidance.
