The CDE sent out CALPADS Update Flash #157 on July 22nd which reminds LEAs that the process for testing and loading Initial ELPAC scores into the Test Operations Management System (TOMS) remains the same as last year.  As a refresher, there are two options:

  1. Pre-enroll students and upload Initial ELPAC results to the Local Scoring Tool (LST) before the start of the school year.
  2. Upload Initial ELPAC results to the Local Scoring Tool after students have enrolled and the school year has begun.

Additionally, the SENR file now includes two work-based learning indicators.  They are:

  1. 1.37 – Pre-Apprenticeship Certification Program Completion Indicator
  2. 1.38 – Pre-Apprenticeship Program (non-certified) Completion Indicator

The CDE goes on to clarify:

Pre-Apprenticeship Program versus Apprenticeship Program

A pre-apprenticeship program prepares students with the prerequisite skills to enter a registered apprenticeship program, which in turn, is designed to provide apprentices with the opportunity to acquire a level of proficiency necessary to advance to the next level.

An apprenticeship program provides apprentices with on the job training, classroom instruction, and supervision by a journey-level or expert-level craftsperson or occupational professional.
