ColumnReMap (ver12.0.0)

This table contains the mapping needed to migrate contact-related data into the new contacts schema. This table does not represent a functional area within Powerschool, nor is it application specific.

Migration Notes: For internal use only. The current schema is not normalized. The existing methodology requires a new column to be added when a new contact is created. The revised methodology eliminates need for new columns by adding rows into this normalized data structure. This table could be used for future remapping of other columns.
