March 2021




    Assessment Data is Available


    Senate Bill (SB) 98  (Chapter 24, Statutes of 2020) suspended the reporting of state and local indicators on the 2020 California School Dashboard (Dashboard). However, the statute requires that available data that would have been included in the Dashboard are reported on the CDE’s website if they are determined to be valid and reliable. On February 17, 2021 the California Department of Education (CDE) released a New Data Report on DataQuest. Click here for the DataQuest Update Issue #8
