The Ed-Fi Community consists of people representing every area of the education technology sector. This includes educators, leaders of education organizations, technologists, analysts, researchers, and others — all of whom volunteer their time and expertise to improve outcomes for students. Significantly, the community is the guiding force behind the governance of the standards and technology published by the Alliance. Ed-Fi governance is effective because leaders representing every area of the education technology spectrum volunteer their time and expertise to determine topics of interest and the best way to solve problems.
This article collects links to information, including how to get involved with the Ed-Fi Community and governance work.
