SACS Web System

The Standardized Account Code Structure (SACS) Web financial reporting system facilitates the preparation of budget, interim, and unaudited actuals reporting period data and reports that are submitted to oversight agencies and the California Department of Education (CDE).

The charter school Alternative Form, approved by the State Board of Education for those charter schools that elect not to report using SACS, will be available in the SACS Web System beginning with the 2022–23 unaudited actuals reporting period. The Alternative Form will no longer be available as a downloadable Excel file.
