California Compliance: ELA and Title III Eligible Immigrants for Spring 1

CALPADS Spring 1 is here!  While much of the information is the same as Fall 1, Spring 1 brings with it a Census to Certification Window of only 27 days versus the 70 days that schools had in the Fall.  With that short time frame, here are a few extra tips to help Spring 1 go smoothly:

1)   Ensure that your Fall 1 report does not conflict with running your Spring 1 report.

If you are using PowerSchool, remember that after you ran the State Reports for Fall 1 and downloaded the result file, you should submit the changes to the CALPADS Submission History table so that Spring 1 submissions of this report do not include entries already submitted in Fall 1.  If your school did not do this in the Fall, now is the time to do it.
