Title III Data and Data Collection

California's data collection procedures for LEP and immigrant students.

California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) and Student National Origin Report (SNOR)

Funding for Title III programs is based on the annual enrollments of eligible immigrant and Limited English Proficient (LEP) students. The CALPADS is used to collect the number of LEP and immigrant students in local educational agencies (LEAs). Private schools provide their number of immigrant students on the SNOR.


Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS)

Data entered into the CARS reports the number of LEP and immigrant students served in LEAs and the number of LEP students served in private schools.



Enrollment data on eligible immigrant students is available at the LEA, county, and state levels as well as by national origin. LEP student demographics include reports at the school, district, county, and state levels and also includes data on teachers and instructional assistants. These reports on English learners are available online through the DataQuest search feature.
