Update on Data Collected on Military Families

Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) that are already collecting whether the parent or guardian of a student is a member of the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard) on active duty or full-time National Guard duty should submit these data to CALPADS using Education Program Code 192 – Armed Forces Family Member in 2017–18. These data, submitted as part of an LEA’s 2017–18 End-of-Year (EOY) 2 data submission, will be used to meet Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) reporting requirements.

The California Department of Education (CDE) just received permission to collect these data as required by ESSA. Given this late notification, the CDE recognizes that this year’s collection of these data may not be comprehensive. LEAs are asked to submit these data if available, and if not, prepare to collect and report the data in 2018–19.

In addition, due to the late notification that the CDE must collect these data in CALPADS, while LEAs can submit the data, the reports in CALPADS have not yet been modified to reflect these data. The CDE will work to make this change for 2018–19.
