Helping California's local education agencies efficiently and effectively
use electronic data

Data Management Recognition Program

The CALPADS Data Management Recognition Program was established to acknowledge the efforts of local education agencies (LEAs) to meet the CALPADS submission certification deadlines and maintain quality data. 

Each year FCMAT/CSIS identifies LEAs with certification dates on or prior to the initial ​deadline.    The CALPADS Data Management Recognition Program tracks the six data submissions required for each year for state reporting to determine the LEAs that met the initial certification deadlines. The CALPADS certification dates are extracted directly from CALPADS. LEAs automatically receive the Data Management Recognition if they quality; they do not need to apply.

In future years, in addition to meeting the initial certification deadlines, LEAs will need to meet data quality standards to qualify for the recognition. Factors considered in determining data quality include but are not limited to reporting accurate highly-qualified teacher (HQT) counts, accurate grade level counts, accurate program counts, course enrollment/completion for all enrollment students and comprehensive discipline reporting.

When an LEA earns the Data Management Recognition, that LEA's superintendent/charter school administrator will receive a letter describing the CALPADS Data Management recognition and how it was earned. LEAs earning the Data Management Recognition are also identified on this web page by the year the recognition was earned. LEAs stay on the list of recognized LEAs to acknowledge their CALPADS achievement in that year.
