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, is available in the SACS Web System for unaudited actuals reporting effective fiscal year 2022–23. The Alternative Form is no longer available as a standalone Excel file.
