Have you tried the comparison tools? 

Our comparison functionality at the district and school levels allows you to: 

  • Compare schools or districts
  • Select a specific year for comparisons and toggle between years as desired
  • Select the data elements to be included in the comparison results from a list of all fields or by data category (e.g., summary, student demographic, performance, suspensions/expulsions, finance)
  • Add in corresponding state or county data for elements you’ve added
  • Filter results using criteria you select (e.g., show districts matching a specific data range such as enrollment between 1-500 students, or show only districts or schools within specific counties)
  • Sort each data element from high to low or low to high, or sort districts/schools alphabetically
  • Add specific schools or districts into the comparison (e.g., add a high-performing district or a neighboring district or school regardless of the other selection criteria used)
  • Export results to Excel
  • Eliminate a data element from results if you don’t need it
  • “Pin” one or more districts or schools so that they are always displayed in the left-most columns of the results regardless of any sorting performed by the user – allowing you to compare districts/schools of interest with the highest or lowest values in each field

For a step-by-step “how to” directions on using the comparisons, view one of our online tutorials or see our How to Create District or School Comparisons article. Or start making your own comparisons: Compare Schools or Compare Districts


Filter the data by race/ethnicity in comparisons

The comparisons tools now include the ability to view and filter cohort graduates and dropouts data by race/ethnicity. To easily identify the schools and districts with the highest/lowest graduation rates for a specific group of students, you can generate a list of schools or districts based on the graduations rates of a subgroup of students, and more!

What's Next

We developing new graphs to display results from the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) tests. We also plan to update cohort graduation and dropout rates and staff demographic data as soon as we get the data.

Why Redesign the Ed-Data site?

The Education Data Partnership first launched Ed-Data in 1996 to offer educators, policymakers, the Legislature, parents, and the public quick access to timely and comprehensive data about K-12 education in California.

We overhauled the Ed-Data website to catch up with changes over the past two decades in how data are collected and used, and we upgraded the technology that runs the site so it provides a better user experience and is easier to maintain and update. The old Ed-Data site remains available as a source of historical data. You can find the old Ed-Data site at
