CALPADS Processing and Reporting

The California Department of Education (CDE) uses three methods for processing records:

To track updates, extract results are saved in the CALPADS Submission History table in PowerSchool as a snapshot of data submitted to CALPADS. The next time the extract is run using Submission report mode, records are only extracted if data in operational key and/or updateable fields differs from the results in the CALPADS Submission History table.
