Original ticket from Lee Barber edited to provide a summary and remove unnecessary details.
Ed-Fi does not document the definitions of descriptors and therefore some of the semantics can be unclear. This seems to be the case with Calendar Event Type, where it was unclear how to map from Ed-Fi's default descriptors to agency defined values.
From the original ticket description (see ticket history for original):
We have a data analyst that is helping write the descriptor mappings between Infinite Campus and Ed-Fi. I have provided a first pass for him to see how our values might be mapped to Ed-Fi descriptor values. The issue isn’t what those Ed-Fi values are, but what do they mean.
Here is a mapping table of what I am talking about…he’s having trouble mapping some of them because he doesn’t know what Teacher Only Day means, for example.
Ed-Fi Value MNPS Value 1 - Emergency day 2 - Holiday CH - Holiday - Christmas
OH - Holiday - Other
SH - Holiday - Spring Break
3 - Instructional day Normal School Day
OI - Discretionary - Instructional
WN - Commissioner Waived School Day
4 - Make-up day MA - Make-Up Saturday
MD - Make-Up Extend School Day
MH - Make-Up Previously Designated Holiday
MS - Make-Up Extend Service Program
MU - Make-Up Sunday
5 - Other AE - Attendance End Date
AS - Attendance Start Date
CE - Calendar End Date
CS - Calendar Start Date
MI - Missed Instructional Day
OO - Discretionary - Other
OV - Discretionary - Teacher Vacation
TV - Teacher Vacation
6 - Strike 7 - Student late arrival/early dismissal AD - Abbreviated Day
8 - Teacher only day IO - In Service Optional
IS - In Service Day
PT - Parent-Teacher Conference
OA - Discretionary - Administrative
OS - Discretionary - In Service
SP - Stockpile - Professional Development
9 - Weather day SI - Stockpile Inclement Weather
For example: What does Student late arrival/early dismissal day mean in Ed-Fi data terms?
Note that Ed-Fi historically aligned/derived its values from the CEDS Calendar Event Type - https://ceds.ed.gov/CEDSElementDetails.aspx?TermId=11596
