CALPADS UPC Source File (TK/K–12)

Downloadable LEA and school-level data files pertaining to the CALPADS UPC Source File for grades TK/K–12.

This page contains downloadable files pertaining to the Unduplicated Pupil Count (UPC) of free or reduced-price meal (FRPM) eligibility, English learner (EL), and foster youth data from the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS). These counts are the starting point for determining the Unduplicated Pupil Percentage (UPP) used in the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) supplemental and concentration grant calculations.

Please Note: The official Free or Reduced-Price Meal (FRPM) count and percent for the academic year are provided in Free or Reduced-Price Meal (Student Poverty) Data file and DataQuest FRPM Data report. These counts represent the number TK/K-12 students who were enrolled on Census Day, the first Wednesday in October, and for whom eligibility data was effective "as of" Census Day. The FRPM data included in the CALPADS Unduplicated Pupil Count (UPC) Data files reflect a broader eligibility time range which goes through the end of October. The FRPM eligibility data included in the CALPADS UPC files are used solely to determine the Unduplicated Pupil Count for the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). These counts/percentages are ONLY applicable for LCFF purposes and should NOT be used in any other context or for any other purpose.
