What is New to Fall 2?

New County/Authorizing LEA ODS Monitoring Reports

Monitoring authorities at the COE, will now have the ability to look at potential mis-assignments while LEAs are still uncertified. The following ODS versions of report 4.3 and 4.5 can be accessed through the County/Authorizing LEA Reports sections. It is important though that the LEA submit the associated SDEM, SASS, CRSE and SCSE (if appropriate) records before the COE looks at the ODS reports.

Fall 2 Submission Checklist

This form provides detailed list of data requirements and key responsibilities to facilitate the smooth Fall 2 submission and certification experience of LEAs. It contains multiple tabs that includes the checklist and list of certification reports. LEAs may download the spreadsheet, assign staff responsibilities and send it to the field.

Download Checklist (Updated as of 2/17/2022)


What files should LEAs submit for Fall 2?

Note: Except for the PSTS file, all Fall 2 files must be submitted and posted in the sequence listed above. Also, you should be aware of the default file upload processing method employed by each file.


Staff who should be reported in this submission

Data associated with the following staff should be included in this submission:

  • Certificated employees employed in certificated positions in school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, schools administered by the Department of Corrections, Division of Juvenile Justice, or State Special Schools. Note that even if a given employee is on temporary leave, they should still be included.
  • University interns or district interns authorized by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing and employed in certificated positions in school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, schools administered by the Department of Corrections, Division of Juvenile Justice, or State Special Schools.
  • Non-certified instructors who are employed in charter schools and who are providing non-core, non-college prep instructional services, and who have SEIDs.
  • Non-certificated administrators in school districts or county offices of education working at the levels of assistant, deputy, associate superintendent, or higher, who have SEIDs.
  • Non-certificated administrators in charter schools, who have SEIDs.
  • Substitute teachers (long-term and short-term) as defined by the individual districts.
  • Itinerant teachers teaching at multiple sites within a district. Itinerant teachers may or may not be in the master schedule at a site.
  • “Pull-out/push-in” teachers, also known as “resource teachers,” teaching at multiple sites or at one site. Generally, these teachers are not in the master schedule.
  • Individuals on provisional internship permits, short-term staff permits, or teacher/emergency permits.


Staff who should NOT be reported in this submission

Data associated with the following staff should not be included in this submission:

  • Certificated employees in adult education or preschools*.
  • Certificated employees in before- or after-school child care programs that do not include instructional programs designed to meet requirements for promotion or grade-level standards.
  • Staff who are not employed directly by the charter schools and who provide instructional services to charter school students.
  • Classified employees in non-certificated positions below the level of assistant, deputy, or associate superintendent.

*If a given certificated employee in a preschool has a SEID, the staff may be included (it’s optional).


Determining Which Teacher to Report

LEAs should always report the “teacher of record” (as defined in Education Code section 44809). This means always report the teacher of record unless the position is VACANT*.

*A "Vacant teacher position" means a position to which a single designated certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of the year for an entire year or, if the position is for a one-semester course, a position to which a single designated certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of a semester for an entire semester.


What is Teacher of Record?

This pertains to the permanent teacher contractually responsible for the instruction of the pupils in the classroom and maintenance of the school record/register (as defined in Education Code section 44809)

Note:

  • If the teacher of record is on leave and will not return until some time during the school year (i.e. it could be after October 31), it is still that teacher who should be reported on Census Day.
  • If the teacher of record is ill on Census Day, that teacher should still be reported.
  • If no permanent teacher was assigned to the class on Census day due to vacancy or hiring is still in process, the substitute teacher teaching on Census day will be reported as the teacher of record.

How to Report Special Education Assignments

Reporting assignments for staff serving students with disabilities in Special Education

Special day classes should be reported in one of two ways:

  • If the teacher is providing instruction in a self-contained setting, then the State Course Code should be 1000 - Self-contained and the Instructional Strategy Code should be populated with 700 - Special Education;
  • If the teacher is providing the student's primary a departmentalized setting, then LEAs should select the appropriate State Course Code that aligns with the content that the teacher is teaching. Additionally, the Instructional Strategy Code should be populated with 700 - Special Education;

Special Education Support - Resource Specialist Programs assignments:   If the teacher is providing SUPPORT instruction (supplementary to their primary instruction) in any subject to students with disabilities (pull-out or push-in)

  • the teacher should be reported with a Job Classification Code of 27 – Itinerant/Pull-Out/Push-In
  • the teacher should be reported with State Course Code 9231 - Special Education Support-Resource Specialist Program (RSP)
  • the Instructional Strategy Code should be populated with 700 - Special Education.
  • LEAs may, but are not required to submit Student Course Section Enrollment records for students that are receiving the support instruction from this teacher, as long as the Staff Job Classification Code for the teacher is 27 – Itinerant/Pull-Out/Push-In
  • RSP Teachers should NOT be reported as "co-teachers" when they are providing pull-out or push-in support for students with disabilities who have been mainstreamed into general education classes.

Staff providing special education services such as occupational and physical therapy or speech and language pathology

  • Staff providing special education services (not instruction) should be reported in the Staff Assignment (SASS) File with the appropriate Non-Classroom-Based or Support Assignment Code. Course sections should not be reported for these staff.

REMINDER: Instructional Strategy code 700 should ONLY be used for courses specifically designed for students with disabilities where all students enrolled are students with disabilities


What classes should be reported for Fall 2?

Include all Course Section Enrollment (CRSE) records occurring on Census Day or for school tracks that are not in session on Census Day, the course submission includes the course sections that begin no later than 30 calendar days after Census Day. This is required for all K-12 students. Do not include lunch, before/after school programs, or preschool course sections.

Reporting 9999999999 SEIDs

SEID 9999999999 MUST ONLY be reported in the Course Section file. Do not submit a SDEM or SASS record with it.

May be used for:

  • College professors with no K-12 credentials
  • Courses identified as college courses in CALPADS will not generate an exception
  • Contracted employees (COE, other districts, ROC/Ps, outside agencies) This will generate an exception, LEAs must provide evidence that educator holds appropriate credential and authorizations in CalSAAS

May NOT be used for:

  • Charter school teachers
  • Non-credentialed charter teachers must minimally obtain a Certificate of Clearance which will issue them a SEID

Using SEID 9999999999s outside of the college course reporting will almost always generate an exception.

Starting AY 2020-21, SEID 9999999999 may only be used for the following courses without getting flagged as a mis-assignment:

  • CTE Courses (State Course codes 7000 -8999)Courses with Field 9.19 - Course Instructional Level Code populated with:
  • Code 23 – College Credit Only, or
  • Code 24 – Dual Credit.

  • College Credit Course codes: 9020, 9082, 9096, 9120, 9154, 9200, 9227, 9273, 9303, and 9358.


Important Note:

Although CALPADS will continue to allow the use of 9999999999s for 2020-21, wherever and whenever possible, and if information is available, LEAs should:

  • Use the teacher’s actual SEID
  • Submit a Staff Demographic Record for the teacher at the LEA in which they are providing instruction
  • Submit a Staff Assignment Record for the teacher at each school in which they are providing instruction

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

You would include all Student Course Enrollment (SCSE) records occurring on Census Day (10/07/2020) or for school tracks that are not in session on Census Day, the student course enrollment submission includes the student course sections that begin no later than 30 calendar days after Census Day. Do not include lunch, free period, or preschool student course sections.


How to pick the correct course codes

Picking appropriate state course codes for each class should involve curriculum staff and should not be the job of the CALPADS data person. The CALPADS Help desk may go as far as point users to resources need to make the appropriate state course code selections. With that said, when picking a state course code:

  • Determine content of the course

  • Which standards were used to develop the course?

  • What are the grade level standards being taught?

  • DO NOT choose the course code based on the teacher’s credential or student grade levels


How to Report EL Services

There are four data elements that comprise the full English Services information of each English Learner.


EL Services components


What is the Postsecondary Status (PSTS) File?

The Postsecondary Status (PSTS) file will be used by LEAs to submit post-secondary status data for:

  • CTE Pathway Completers as required by Perkins V as part of Fall 2
  • Students with Disabilities (SWD) as required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as part of End-of-Year 4

Since the PSTS file will be used for two purposes, not all of the fields on the PSTS file are required for the Fall 2 PSTS CTE submission.

You may review the PSTS page for more details.
