Dear County and District Superintendents and Direct Funded Charter School Administrators:
The California Department of Education (CDE) will begin collecting data for the 2012 Staff Evaluation Reporting System (SERS). The current data collection fulfills a requirement by the U.S. Department of Education and will be submitted to its Education Data Exchange Network (EDEN) in February 2013. For additional information, visit the School Staffing Report Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/nclb/sr/tq/schlstfrpt.asp#sers.
The SERS is Web-based and requires that you or designated staff log on to report the data. The passwords to access the system are noted below.

CDS Code: [CDS Code]
Entity Password: [Entity Password]
System Password: [System Password]
Using SERS, each local educational agency (LEA) will submit the following data for the 2011–12 school year:
Instructions for completing the survey are posted on the CDE SERS Instructions Web page at: http://www.cde.ca.gov/nclb/sr/tq/sersinstructions.asp.
In February 2013, all data reported will be posted on the CDE Web site. To maintain confidentiality, the data for LEAs with fewer than 10 principals or teachers will not display.
Please ensure that the Staff Evaluation Data is submitted by January 18, 2013. Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the survey.
If you have any questions regarding SERS, please contact Anie Wilson, Associate Governmental Program Analyst, Title II Leadership Office, Professional Learning Support Division, by telephone at 916-445-5669 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
