2018–19 CALPADS County-Level Certification Report


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. Additionally, specialized workshops relevant to CALPADS are offered occasionally and are communicated to CALPADS users and administrators.

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..

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.
