Welcome to the CalSCHLS data dashboards: Healthy Kids, Staff And Parent Surveys

History and Purpose

The CalSCHLS system was created by the California Department of Education (CDE) in 1997 to efficiently and cost-effectively provide school districts and their partner communities with quality local data which can be used to improve student academic performance and social-emotional, behavioral, and physical health of all youth.

It assesses key indicators linked to success in school, career, and life. The majority of districts in California now use CalSCHLS data as Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) indicators.

Welcome to the CalSCHLS data dashboards page. Use the dashboard to examine and graphically display the most recent state and district CHKS results for elementary and secondary schools. You can also examine trends over time and disparities across student subgroups.

Elementary school results can be displayed for 21 indicators for all 5th grade students, males and females, and by participation in afterschool programs. Statewide results come from data aggregated across all districts in California that administered the elementary survey.

Secondary school results can be presented for 23 indicators from the Core Survey Module and 12 indicators from the School Climate Module. Results can be examined across 11 subgroups. Statewide results come from the Biennial State Survey – a randomly selected representative sample of secondary schools in California.
