California School Information Services (CSIS)

Contains information about the funded initiative to transfer student records electronically from participating school districts and to allow state reporting from electronic records.

The California School Information Services (CSIS) program is a statutorily authorized local educational entity with the mission to:

The CSIS program office is under the administrative oversight of the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team, which is operated by the Kern County Office of Education. The CSIS program and the CDE collaborate on a number of projects including the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS). This data system is the foundation of California’s K–12 education data system. It maintains individual-level data including student demographic, program participation, grade level, enrollment, course enrollment and completion, discipline, state assessment, teacher assignment, and other data required to meet state and federal reporting requirements. Data will be linked longitudinally using a unique, non-personally identifiable SSID. The CDE and CSIS have collaborated for years in the development of CALPADS. While CALPADS is a CDE-owned data system, CSIS provides technical assistance and training to LEAs, provides system maintenance, and staffs the system support desk. For information about CALPADS, visit the CDE's CALPADS Web page.
