Which assignments will CalSAAS address and which will not be monitored?
For Non-charter schools CalSAAS will monitor classroom teacher and services assignments entered into CALPADS. AB 1219 specifies that for charter schools only educators in teaching positions shall be monitored. Therefore services and non-classroom based assignments in charter schools will not be displayed in the system.
Note, although CalSAAS will not include charter school services assignments, the chartering authority may request information on services assignments for purposes other than assignment monitoring outlined in Education Code §44258.9.
When are the Consequential vs. Non-Consequential years?
Are Monitoring Authorities only responsible for educator's certificated assignments during CalSAAS monitoring?
Monitoring Authorities have the statutory responsibility to appropriately assign educators and service providers year-round, therefore it may be outside of CalSAAS and outside of census date reporting. Misassignments found outside of the CalSAAS must be reported in CalSAAS via the Monitoring Authority Reported Misassignments feature.
Monitoring practices are at the discretion of the Monitoring Authority. Nothing in AB 1219 precludes a monitoring authority from conducting manual audits outside of the CalSAAS.
How will learner led online courses for independent students be handled in CalSAAS?
CalSAAS does not currently have the capability to differentiate online courses or the mode of delivery of courses. However, educators in unique courses must be appropriately credentialed for the mode of instructions. Please see the Unique Courses web resource for more information on appropriate distance learning assignments.
If educators in these courses generate exceptions, then they can be determined through the regular exception determination process.

However, please note that it is the responsibility of the employing agency to ensure that the educator is appropriately assigned for the duration of the year pursuant to Education Code §35035(g), §47605(l), and §47605.6(l).
