CALPADS SENR FILE LAYOUT CHANGES!!! - May 7th!

calpadsupdate
Dear LEA Representatives, CALPADS will have a notable change after the regularly scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, May 7th. The SSID Enrollment (SENR) file will have 6 new data elements to capture the postsecondary/transition status indicator and five work-based learning indicators. It is highly recommended that LEAs finish processing any existing SENR jobs before May 7. SSID Enrollment jobs that are currently "In Review" or "Ready for Review" should be posted prior to the May 7th release. That said, jobs in these states can still be posted after the release. Note however that the CALPADS Team prefers and strongly recommends that everyone start fresh with the new SENR file format on May 7.
