Notable Changes to CALPADS EOY

Below are notable features added to CALPADS that you should be aware of.

Post Redevelopment

  • The redesigned post process will facilitate a faster upload and posting of files to CALPADS while reducing the strain to the system previously created by allowing partial posting of files.
  • The redesigned post process is scheduled to be implemented on April 6, 2022 CALPADS will be down from the service outage will be from 5:00 PM April 6 to 5 PM April 11.
  • Between April 6 to 5 April 11 CALPADS will not send the nightly enrollment file updates to the Test Operations Management System (TOMS)
  • LEAs will still be able to test students during the downtime as long as CALPADS administrators have ensured the following: Enrollment, student demographic, and English language acquisition information in CALPADS is up to date as of April 5, 2022 (day prior to downtime)
  • Students needing to be tested whose enrollment records are not submitted to CALPADS by April 5th or who enroll between April 6th and April 11th may have a slight delay in testing
  • All files can be submitted upon CALPADS coming back on-line. For TOMS, LEAs may begin submitting new and updated enrollments beginning Tuesday April 12th which will then be available in TOMS April 13th and then the testing system on April 14th

Submission Strategies

Things to consider prior to submitting and certifying EOY:

  • Personal considerations

    • What is your easiest file to submit?
    • How much is your workload?
    • Do you have other staff to rely on?
    • When is your summer break/vacation?
  • Local factors

    • Availability of school site staff and district personnel, internal deadlines
  • Priority of data submitted

    • Perkins funding data, Public data statistics, Cohort results
  • Potential reporting milestones

    • When is your district's last day of new enrollments?
    • When are final grades available?
    • When is last day of school?
  • CALPADS Deadlines

    • Benefits and consequences of meeting the initial
    • EOY deadline and amendment window deadline

EOY Order of Approval and Certification

The CDE suggests that LEAs certify the EOY submissions in the order: 2, 4, 1 then 3 for the following reasons:

  • EOY 2, is a straightforward and most of the data certified should have already been updated in CALPADS.

  • EOY 4, should be submitted and certified next because as LEAs submit special education records they identify enrollment updates they need to make before certifying cumulative enrollment counts in EOY 3

  • EOY 1, although grades for the last semester or quarter may still be pending, prior semester or quarter grades may now be submitted through the SCSC together with the CRSC records. By doing so, certification may be done sooner than later.

  • Lastly EOY 3, LEAs need to ensure that all enrollment/exit updates have been made, incident and absence summary data can be submitted with the end of the school year rollover.

What files should LEAs submit for EOY 1?

Note: Files must be submitted and posted in the sequence listed above. Also, users should be aware of the default file upload processing method employed by each file.

What classes should be reported for EOY l?

LEAs must submit information on courses that students have completed during the academic year (7/1/2021 to 6/30/2022). Courses in departmentalized classroom settings in grades 7–12 are expected. This includes:

  • CTE Courses (7000 - 8999)
  • Regular classes in the 9000 range
  • College courses

Who are the students you should report with a Student Course Completion?

You would include all Student Course Completiont (SCSC) records of students in departmentalized courses who have completed their said courses during the academic year (7/1/2021 to 6/30/2022)

Work-Based Learning Measures

This page provides definitions and details on current work-based learning measures in the CCI that have been approved by the SBE. It also reviews new measures that are currently being considered for potential inclusion in the CCI.

Who are the students you should report with a Student Career Technical Education record?

You only report SCTE records for students who are CTE Pathway Completers for this current academic year. SCTE records will now require the academic year value and so ONLY CTE Pathway completers for 2021-22 must be reported with a SCTE record.

What files should LEAs submit for EOY 2?

Programs expected to be submitted





Title I Part A Basic Targeted



Title I Part A Neglected



Armed Forces Family Member



504 Accommodation Plan



Opportunity Program



California Partnership Academy



Pregnant or Parenting Programs (formerly Cal-SAFE)



Transitional Kindergarten


EOY 2 Important Reminder

CARS certification must be done early. Certified status for each school under the LEA will affect the CALPADS expected schools table in relation to who are and are not required to submit Title I Targeted program data.

Below are recommended steps in ensuring CARS and EOY2 certification are accomplished without any delays.

  1. Run Report 5.1 certified in EOY 2 2020-2021.
  2. Determine who is responsible for Title I funding/ CARS in your LEA. Work with your CARS person to verify each schools’ current designation.
  3. CARS person must accurately certify CARS flagging each school as either Schoolwide or not
  4. Report Program 122 records of eligible students of Title I Part A Targeted schools in CALPADS. Schoolwide schools automatically count all enrolled students and so does not require any SPRG records.
  5. Run Snapshot 5.1 for EOY 2 2021-22.
  6. Confirm counts for Targeted and Schoolwide schools.

What files should LEAs submit for EOY 3?

EOY 3 Reminders

  • Incident files must be submitted and posted in the sequence listed above. Also, users should be aware of the default file upload processing method employed by each file.

  • Student enrollment must only be closed out at the end of the academic year. If students are estill testing (CAASPP or ELPAC), it is important that the SENR record be left open.

When to submit an Incident record

LEAs are expected to report Incident records for the following:

(1) Incidents involving violations of Education Code Sections 48900 and 48915 even if they did not result in suspension or expulsion and;

(2) Incidents resulting in the use of behavioral restraints and seclusion even if they were not a result of a violation of Education Code Sections 48900 and 48915

For additional , please refer to the following

Incident Reporting Reminders

Users should be aware of some nuances when reporting Incident Data.

  1. Incident Records can be submitted through Batch upload or manual posting at the Incident data page. However, a user cannot submit using a combination of both process for the same incident. If a user decides to upload a SINC file for an incident, then the SIRS and SOFF must be reported through batch as well. If a user decides to manually add an incident online, then the corresponding SIRS and SOFF section can be added in the same transaction.

  2. When Submitting through batch upload, the sequence of submission and posting should be in the order listed below. Each file must contain all reportable incidents and all have zero errors before moving on to the next file.

    1. SINC
    2. SIRS
    3. SOFF
  3. Although there are 3 distinct file types, users will not be able to see the Incident result information in both Student Details (Incident Results) and Incident Data section until both the SINC and SIRS record are posted.

  4. All 3 files use Replacement Processing

    • Records are processed based on the operational key. Records may be replaced using transaction types of “” (empty string), or “ “ (space), or “R” (Replace) all of which cause invoke the same system behavior. Submitted data are processed using the operational key to identify which records will be processed. For batch, all the records in CALPADS with the same operational key are deleted even if only one record with that operational key was submitted and all newly submitted records in the submission with the same operational key or any other operational key are added. For online maintenance, individual records in CALPADS with the same primary key are deleted and replaced.

The table below depicts the processing type and operational key for the various CALPADS record types.

Record Type Processing Type Operational Key
Student Incident Replacement Processing School of Attendance, Academic Year ID, Incident Local ID
Student Incident Result Replacement Processing School of Attendance, Academic Year ID, Incident Local ID
Student Offense Replacement Processing School of Attendance, Academic Year ID, Incident Local ID
