PLIS Data Reporting Schedule

Schedule of due dates and submission periods for the Preschool Language Information System (PLIS) Report.

California State Preschool (CSPP) contractors are required to submit the Preschool Language Information System (PLIS) Report through the PLIS on a quarterly basis, with the first required report due April 20, 2023, reporting on children currently enrolled between January 1, 2023, to March 31, 2023. The reporting window will be open for the first required PLIS Report submission between April 1, 2023, to April 20, 2023.

The PLIS Report will need to be submitted every quarter (Quarter 3: January 1–March 31; Quarter 4: April 1–June 30; Quarter 1: July 1–September 30; Quarter 2: October 1–December 31). Previous PLIS reports will be removed from the system, and a new PLIS report must be uploaded every quarter, even if enrollment statuses have not changed. Contractors do have the ability to redownload the previous quarter’s PLIS report and resubmit this for the new quarter. This should only be performed if all enrollment statuses and information have remained the same for the new quarter.

  • If no new enrollments occurred or no child has left the program, after successfully reuploading the previous quarter’s file, no further action is needed.
  • If new children have enrolled, after re-uploading last quarter’s reporting period’s file, simply select “Add Child” in the top right-hand corner and add the new child’s information.
  • If a child has left your program, you can “Edit” that child’s file, and select “Delete Child” in the bottom left-hand corner.

The submission period for each quarter will open at midnight on the first day of the quarter and close at 11:59 p.m. on the 20th of the same month. This means that contractors have 20 days to submit their PLIS Report for data collected during the previous three-month period. Please ensure that the information being reported is for the previous reporting period, i.e., reports uploaded between January 1 and January 20 should only contain information on children enrolled and receiving services between October 1 and December 30. In addition, if the reporting due date of the 20th falls on a weekend or holiday, the report will be due on the nearest following business day (i.e., if the 20th falls on a Saturday, the PLIS report will be due on the 22nd).

The reporting schedule for Fiscal Year 2022-23 will be as follows:
