Fall 1 Amendment Window Deadline Has Been Extended.

To:            Local Educational Agency Representatives

From:       California Department of Education – CALPADS Team                                       

Date:        February 10, 2016

Subject:  CALPADS Update FLASH #114


Due to the delay in the availability of the preview of Fall 1 data, which includes the Unduplicated Pupil Count (UPC) that will be used in 2015–16 Second Principal Apportionment (P-2), the California Department of Education (CDE) has extended the Fall 1 deadline to March 18, 2016. The Fall 2 deadlines remain the same. The deadlines are summarized below:

Submission Original Deadline New Deadline
Fall 1
Last Day of Amendment Window
February 19, 2016
March 18, 2016
Fall 2
Certification Deadline
March 4, 2016
No Change
Fall 2
Last Day of Amendment Window
April 8, 2016
No Change

The preview of Fall 1 data will be made available later this week. While the preview reflects the data that LEAs can view within CALPADS and which they certified in Certification Report 1.17 – FRPM/EL/Foster Youth – Count, the preview also shows: (1) aggregate counts of students enrolled in County Offices of Education (COEs) whose enrollments will be attributed back to the district of geographic residence based on their Student School Transfer Category; and (2) of the total enrollment, the number of students (free or reduced-price meal eligible, English learner, and foster youth) who will count toward the district’s UPC which is used in determining the LEA’s supplemental and concentration grant funding under the Local Control Funding Formula. Since addressing issues identified as a result of reviewing these data requires communication between COEs and school districts, the CDE is extending the Fall 1 deadlines to provide additional time for any necessary updates to be made.

When the Fall 1 preview data are made available, accompanying explanations will be provided in a FLASH.
