CALPADS Processing and Reporting

The California Department of Education (CDE) uses three methods for processing records:

To track updates, extract results are saved in the CALPADS Submission History table in PowerSchool as a snapshot of data submitted to CALPADS.

For more information regarding CALPADS processing, see:
