LEA Funding

SSID Maintenance Funding.  Ongoing funding ($0.25 per enrolled student) is available for eligible LEAs to support maintenance of Statewide Student Identifiers (SSIDs). Visit the Local Assistance Funding Web page for more information.

The California Department of Education (CDE) continues to advocate for adequate ongoing funding to support LEA activities related to maintaining SSIDs, and collecting, maintaining, reporting, and validating student- and teacher-level data. The CDE has requested funding and sponsored legislation in the past number of years.
