MA Reported Misassignments

Misassignments, Vacancies, and Short Term Waivers that are identified outside of CalSAAS processing can be recorded in the system by a monitoring authority using the MA Reported Misassignment feature.

What types of assignments should be reported using the MA Reported Misassignment?

Assignment Monitoring in CalSAAS is based on a snapshot in time, being census date. Therefore, any Misassignments or Vacancies that occurred on census date and were not already identified in the system are required to be reported using this process. Misassignments or Vacancies that occurred before or after census date may be reported using the MA Reported Misassignment feature, at the discretion of the monitoring authority.

Pursuant to Title 5 ยง80123 Short Term Waivers must be reported for the entirety of the school year being monitored.
