The Technical Advisory Group (or TAG for short) is a group of organizations which meets regularly to provide input on the Ed-Fi Technology Roadmap and other technical questions of importance to the Ed-Fi community. 

Membership in the TAG is annual, and we renew that membership each spring. If your organization is interested in participating for the 2021-22 year, we encourage you to apply. 

What is the TAG?

The Alliance and its community rely heavily on the TAG to provide guidance for the technical evolution of the Ed-Fi standards and technology. The TAG itself is a diverse group of organizations, consisting of school districts, state education agencies, and technology vendors. These organizations are experienced in data exchange and management that relies on Ed-Fi’s standards and technology in their operations. 

For more information on the TAG, including current member organizations and notes from past meetings, please visit our Tech Docs website for more information : (requires Ed-Fi login).

In the past 2020-21 year, the TAG has  deep dived into several areas, including the Data Import product roadmap, improving the reliability of vendor API connectivity, strategies to facilitate data movement from the Ed-Fi platform into analytics, approaches to the inherent diversity of ecosystem data, and several other topics. You can find TAG notes online if you are curious to see the topics covered.
