Reminder - It's time to update your district's DASHBOARD coordinator!

Dear Dashboard Coordinators:

This a reminder that the California Department of Education (CDE) will be requiring new submission of the Dashboard Coordinator Application for the 2017-18 school year in order to gain access as the coordinator for your local educational agency (LEA). Even if the coordinator information has not changed from the previous year, the application must be submitted and approved by the LEA superintendent or charter school administrator to receive the login credentials. The CDE will be resetting the 2016-17 Dashboard Coordinator data base on August 18, 2017 and will open the system for LEAs to begin registering their new coordinators on August 21, 2017. The 2017-18 Dashboard Coordinator Application will be available on August 21 at https://coordinator.caschooldashboard.org/#/application.

Process for Completing the Designation Application

Preparing to Complete the Application: Ensure that the information contained in the California School Directory is current. If changes need to be made, contact your county-district-school (CDS) Coordinator to facilitate these changes.

Accessing the Application: Visit https://coordinator.caschooldashboard.org/#/application

Completing the Application: Complete the application, which includes providing contact information, LEA/School Name, and submit the completed application by selecting the "Submit" button. It is recommended that you provide contact information for an alternate coordinator that can be contacted in the absence of the designated coordinator.

Obtaining Approval and Password: Once the application has been submitted, the superintendent or charter school administrator will receive an e-mail from with a link to review and approve the designation. If the application is approved by the superintendent or charter school administrator, an e-mail including the 2017-18 password will be sent to all contacts identified on the application.

For questions about the coordinator designation process, contact the Local Agency Systems Support Office by email at or by phone at 916-323-LCFF (5233).

Dashboard Aficionados! Join the LCFF Review Team!

Good afternoon!

The California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) is seeking qualified individuals to serve as leads and as members of LCFF Content Library Review Teams. If you are interested in serving on a review team, please complete the Application to Serve as Lead/Member of LCFF Content Library Review Team. The deadline to submit an application is September 1, 2017.

As background, the CCEE, in partnership with many other stakeholders, is developing the LCFF Content Library, a free repository of files (e.g., slides, handouts, videos, and other physical or electronic content) on California's accountability and continuous improvement system. The CCEE supports and curates the Library in partnership with review teams, the members of which may include representatives from county offices of education, statewide education associations, advocacy organizations, community-based organizations, and other entities selected by the CCEE. Following submission of a file, it is typically reviewed by at least one review team, which then makes a recommendation to the CCEE based on whether the file is accurate and current but also whether it is aligned with the California School Dashboard, the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), and other files in the Library.

Please contact me with any questions. Additional details on the LCFF Content Library can be found on the CCEE Web Page at www.ccee-ca.org.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Michelle Magyar

Senior Manager, Training

CA Accountability Coordinators Update for May 24, 2017

(Editor's Note - From an email distributed today to all CA Accountablity Coordinators)

Dear Accountability Coordinators: 

The purpose of this e-mail is to inform you of two important notifications announcing the opening of the 2016–17 End-of-Year (EOY) data submission to the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS). 

These notifications are attached and are also available online on the California Department of Education’s Web site at: 2016–17 Data Collections: 

Mid-Year Update (May 5, 2017 Letter to Superintendents and Charter Administrators): http://www.cde.ca.gov/ds/sp/cl/data1617midyearupdate.asp 

CALPADS Update FLASH #127:

http://www.cde.ca.gov/ds/sp/cl/calpadsupdflash127.asp

We strongly urge accountability coordinators to review these notices since the EOY data submission includes data that will be used for state indicators reported in the Fall 2017 Dashboard. These notices also reference data submission for chronic absenteeism. 

Please note that no decisions have been made to the calculation formula or to the exact information that will be reported in the Fall 2017 Dashboard. Once these decisions have been made for chronic absenteeism, we will notify accountability coordinators. 

Because local educational agencies (LEAs) will not receive another opportunity to correct these data once the EOY amendment window closes on Friday, August 11, 2017, accountability coordinators may wish to work with their CALPADS LEA Administrator(s) and appropriate staff prior to the window closing. If you have any questions regarding these two notifications, please contact the CALPADS/CBEDS/CDS Operations Office by e-mail at .
