SACS Valid Codes and Combinations

Tables and descriptions of valid Standardized Account Code Structure (SACS) codes and combinations.

NOTE FOR SACS2021ALL USERS:
Local educational agencies (LEAs) preparing 2021–22 End of Year Projection (“Third Interim”) reports should not update their SACS2021ALL software with this validation table update, which includes opening Fund 08 to objects 5900 and 8662. These objects are not included in the SACS2021ALL Fund 08/08I forms. If the SACS2021ALL software is updated with this validation table update and the new combinations are used, the values will not extract into SACS2021ALL Fund 08/08I forms and a technical review check exception will not flag.

Note:  For 2022–23 Budget Reporting, these validation table updates:

  • Were automatically applied to the recently released SACS Web-based Financial Reporting System (SACS Web System);
  • Are provided for local educational agencies that opt to use the tables for updating their local accounting systems; and
  • Will download by default into the C:\SACS2022\Update folder, although the Legacy SACS2022 Budget Software was not released/installed.

If you would like an email notification of updates to SACS valid codes and combinations, please send a blank message to join-sacs-update@mlist.cde.ca.gov to subscribe to the sacs-update mailing list.
