Sonoma County Office of Education


The California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) is the data system used to maintain individual-level data, including student demographics, course data, discipline, assessments, staff assignments, and other information for state and federal reporting.

The CALPADS system continues to add functionality as it moves toward becoming the main source of data for all state and federal reporting. In September 2018, CALPADS moved into the cloud, updated the user interface, and redesigned the security model in its work to transition the California Special Education Management Information System (CASEMIS) into CALPADS in the 2018-19 school year.

The Sonoma County Office of Education offers training and support to help districts and charter schools submit accurate and timely data to the CALPADS system. If you require assistance, contact Briana Domenichelli at (707) 524-2808 or


The CALPADS Training Schedule for 2023-24 includes all the classes and open labs scheduled for the year. Registration for classes opens approximately four weeks prior to the scheduled date. Mark your calendar now so you don’t miss any of the classes you want to attend. When classes are available, they will show below.
