Student State Reporting/CALPADS - Copy


Mrs. Francina Loucel

Student Information System/CALPADS Technician


The California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) is used to maintain individual-level data including student demographics, course data, discipline, assessments, staff assignments, and other data for state and federal reporting. CALPADS requires three major data reporting submissions: Fall 1, Fall 2, and End-of-Year.
  • Fall 1 data (student demographics, programs, grade levels, and school enrollment and exit) are certified in mid-December. The certified data is a snapshot that captures all active enrollments on Count Day (first Wednesday in October). This certified snapshot is the basis for the school year’s official student enrollment, demographic and program information counts and rates.
  • Fall 2 data (student course enrollments, teacher assignments and English Learner education services) are collected, verified, and reported to CALPADS, and certified in February. The certified Fall 2 data snapshot captures this information for students and certificated staff active on Count Day.
  • End-of-Year data (course completion for grades 7–8, CTE participation, program participation, student discipline) are collected, verified, reported to CALPADS, and certified in July.
The data submitted to CALPADS are used for statistical, compliance, and funding purposes. It is also used to determine funding for programs that serve migrant, gifted and talented, English learner, economically disadvantaged, foster, and homeless students, and the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) allocations.
