Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:
Update on California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System 2019–20 Submissions
Due to recent school closures stemming from the COVID-10 pandemic, the California Department of Education (CDE) has extended the certification deadline for the Fall 2 submission from March 20, 2020 to April 24, 2020.
With regard to the upcoming End-of-Year (EOY) submissions, the CDE is fully aware of the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on schools and students, and consequently on any data collected and submitted for state and federal reporting and accountability. The CDE is in communication with the United States Department of Education (ED), the Governor’s Office, and the State Board of Education regarding these impacts and expects new guidance to be forthcoming. The CDE will keep LEAs informed as information becomes available.
Thank you in advance for your efforts to serve California's students during these challenging times. I appreciate the ongoing support of your staff, including LEA CALPADS Administrators and their staff, who through their work are playing a key role in so many critical functions.
If you have any questions about this letter, please contact the CALPADS/CBEDS/CDS Operations Office by phone at 916-324-6738 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Glenn Miller, Administrator, by phone at 916-319-0529 or by email at email@example.com.
