New on Ed-Data

Now available: 2019-20 school district financial reports, ADA and cumulative enrollment, and suspensions and expulsions data.


What's new:

Data on revenues and expenditures for the 2019-20 for every school district in California. Plus, 2019-20 suspensions and expulsions data.   

2019-20 District Financial Reports  

In the Financial Data tab of any school district or county office of education, you will now find updated financial reports for the 2019-20 school year. Data include revenues and expenditures, with details on how school spend their funds. To find the financial data, navigate to any school district and click the "Financial Data" tab.

Note: Because charter schools report their financials in different ways, Ed-Data does not include financial data for charter schools. 

Cumulative Enrollment and ADA graphs updated with 2019-20 data

In addition to the census-day enrollment counts collected in October of each school year, the state uses Average Daily Attendance when it apportions funds to school districts and cumulative enrollment to calculate suspension, expulsion and chronic absenteeism rates. Both the Average Daily Attendance graph and the Cumulative Enrollment graph have been updated through 2019-20 and can be found next to the Census Day Enrollment graph in the Demographics section of the Student profile. 

The ADA presented on Ed-Data comes from the CDE's Current Expense of Education calculation. Average Daily Attendance is only reported at the district and statewide level. 

Cumulative enrollment counts are collected at the end of the year and consist of the total number of unduplicated primary and short-term enrollments within the academic year. The data are available at the school, district, county and state level. You can drill into the graph for data by student group such as race/ethnicity, gender and other characteristics, as well as by whether the students attend a charter or traditional public school. 

2019-20 Suspensions and Expulsions data

You can now view discipline data, including suspension and expulsion rates, the number of students suspended for defiance only, and the number of suspensions and expulsions for the most serious offenses. 

You can find the suspensions data in Student tab at the school, district, county and state level. 

Note: as a result of the statewide physical school closures that occurred in February/March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Department of Education cautions that 2019–20 suspension and expulsion data are not comparable to similar data from other academic years; however, the CDE has determined that these data are valid and reliable for the period of time that schools were physically open during the 2019–20 academic year. 

Also available on Ed-Data: 

2019-20 Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate Data

Visit the College and Career Readiness section of the Student Profile to find graduation and dropout rates as well as how many students met the course requirements for admission to UC/CSU. These data are available for schools, districts, counties and at the state level. You can toggle between counts and percentages and drill into the graph for details by race/ethnicity or for students with disabilities, homeless, migrant and foster youth, socioeconomically disadvantaged students, and more. At the district, county and state levels, you can drill in further to view data for all students or separate out students in charter schools or traditional public schools. 

We have also added a new graph that shows the total number of students in the cohort, including details by race/ethnicity and other characteristics as well as whether the students are in charter schools. 

2019-20 Teacher Salary Data

Visit the Teacher Salary section under the Staff tab for the latest data on average teacher salaries, lowest and highest salaries offered, benefits plans, teacher experience, and more. Teacher salary data are available at the district level, with one overview graph in the state profile.

Have you tried the comparison tools? 

Much of the data mentioned above are also available in our school and district comparisons. Our comparison functionality 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

What's Next

The disruption cause by the pandemic has created uncertainty about data availability. There will be no CAASPP/Smarter Balanced test results or data on chronic absenteeism for the 2019-20 school year. Please see the CDE's COVID-12 and Data Availability Page for more information.
