(Updated as of 10/13/2021)

Description: Reports unduplicated count of Students with Disabilities by federal settings at the LEA level

Report Type: Snapshot / Certification (Fall 1)

Security Roles: SELPA Reports

Data As Of: - Snapshot version Fall 1: Census Day

Basic selection criteria:

  • Students Included: Students with a qualifying enrollment who have an associated qualifying Special Education Record (SPED) at any time during the report period.

    • Qualifying Enrollment:

      • Most recent Open Enrollment at any time during the Report Period. The “most recent” SENR record is defined as the last enrollment based on the last Student Enrollment End Date on or after the report period start date. In cases where more than one SENR record overlap the reports period, priority is given to Primary Enrollments. In cases where more than one SENR record for a student with the same Enrollment Exit Date exists, use the top record ordered by descending order by Student Enrollment Start Date, Grade Level Code (sorted on reference key), and CDS.
      • Enrollment Status Code = Primary (10), Secondary (20), or Short-Term (30), and Non-ADA (50)
      • Default Grade Level = IN, TD, PS, KN-12
    • Qualifying Special Education (SPED) Record:

      • Most recent Special Education Program Record (Record Type = SPED) (based Special Education Meeting Date or Amendment Date (if populated)) overlapping the qualifying enrollment for the same reporting LEA
      • If a student has two active plans (i.e., a 150 and 100 or 100 and 200) only display information from most recent plan. If the student is not yet 3 and has 150 and 100 plan, then display the 150 plan information rather than 100 plan information.
      • Special Education Program Eligible (See CALPADS glossary: Special Education Program Eligible) during the Report Period (which defaults to the Fall 1 Report Period) (See CALPADS Glossary: Report Period)
      • Note: SPED records where Meeting Type Code = 40 (Eligibility Evaluation Meeting) are not brought into CALPADS reporting.
    • Student Information (SINF), Student Program (SPRG) and Student English Language Acquisition (SELA) and Foster Youth data used for selecting student subgroups (e.g. Race/Ethnicity, Homeless, EL, etc.) are selected from the most recent record that overlaps the qualifying enrollment
  • Please Note:

    • LEA Totals are only including aggregates from the students that belong to the SELPA
    • In order for a student to appear in a particular SELPA count, they must have the SELPA code reported on the SPED record that overlaps the qualifying enrollment at the same reporting LEA as on the SPED record AND the SELPA code from the SPED record has a reporting relationship with the Reporting LEA
