Beginning in March 2019, California Department of Education (CDE) and Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) staff will be conducting training sessions at county offices of education (COEs) throughout California. The training sessions will cover:

  • The new State Assignment Accountability System (CalSAAS)
  • Changes in the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS)
  • Changes to the state course codes and descriptions

The CalSAAS will use data from the CTC and the CDE to identify potential misassignments and provide a communication platform for counties and school districts to address and resolve them. In addition, CDE staff will be providing information about the Promoting Equitable Access to Teachers (PEAT) Program and Title I equity reporting requirements on the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Federal Addendum.

Training

CALPADS training is offered through California School Information Services (CSIS). Various training sessions are available, including a course that offers a general overview of CALPADS and its features. Other training sessions cover topics such as anomalies, reporting and certification, and SSID enrollment and maintenance.

New Website, New Look and Feel

In January 2019, CSIS launched a new website and new training environment intended to improve access to resources. The CALPADS course catalog and training registration has moved to a new Learning Management System (LMS) called Bridge. CALPADS LEA Administrators will have access to the Bridge platform, which provides an opportunity to address the unique and varied experiences of learners through progressive information disclosure, posting information appropriate for data submission, as well as meeting the learning needs of experienced and new users. Users who do not have a Bridge account have access to learning materials via CSIS - Resources For Everyone External link opens in new window or tab..

Getting Started

Users who wish to access CALPADS training can find it via the CSIS web site. CALPADS LEA Administrators and other users should visit CALPADS Learning OpportunitiesExternal link opens in new window or tab. to get started. CALPADS LEA Administrators may access the LMS here. Additionally, the "Fast & Free Resources for Everyone" section links users to videos and other publicly available documents.

Resources

Visit CSIS - Resources For Everyone External link opens in new window or tab., and visit the CALPADS Resources External link opens in new window or tab. , which house a number of useful documents and presentations regarding CALPADS training, data privacy, and a wealth of information relevant to CALPADS.
