We have been informed that the CDE has released information on an updated format for the CASEMIS Table A data. We are working on an update to account for the data file changes.

In the meantime, you can still use this tool to verify your data in the current Table A format.

Frequently Asked Questions

CALPADS and CASEMIS files are submitted several times per year. Which should I use for this tool?

When using this tool, you may want to initially run the comparison between certified CALPADS (Report 8.1) and certified CASEMIS data (Table A). Be aware, that as the certification dates are different, some of the mismatches may be due to the entry and exit dates of students which occur during the gap in the certification periods. This entry and exit may be due to students moving in or out of the district or entering or exiting special education. As you compare on an ongoing basis, you could run extracts from similar dates to reduce mismatches due to the gap in dates.

How do I handle data from my district's charter schools?

If the district has charter schools that are considered schools of the district for special education services, yet report their CALPADS data independent of the school district, you may want to filter the Table A data to exclude those charter schools from the district data, and have the charter school compare their own Table A data to their CALPADS submission.
