The closure of schools as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has added complexity to how K-12 data are collected and reported in California. However, the California Department of Education did release data enrollment data for the 2019-20 school year along with data used to calculate funding under the Local Control Funding Formula. You can now find that information in the graphs and comparisons on Ed-Data.
- Enrollment by race/ethnicity and gender as well as counts for students in traditional schools or charter schools.
- English learner data, including information on how many students have been reclassified as proficient in English.
- Unduplicated pupil counts of high-needs students, which are used as a starting point for calculating funding under the state's Local Control Funding Formula.
- The number of charter schools and charter school enrollment.
- Schools by type and districts by type.
- At the state level, the number and enrollment of private schools in California.

You will find these new data elements in the "Student College and Career Readiness" section of the School and District Comparisons.

You can also further drill in by whether the students attend a charter or traditional school.
