The California Basic Educational Data System - Online Reporting Application (CBEDS-ORA) logon page is used to provide access to CBEDS-ORA application which is used to report School Information Form (SIF) and County District Information Form (CDIF) data.
The Aeries Create CBEDS ORA Files form in Aeries Client allows you to create the SIF and CDIF file. This form is only available from the District version and is a Setup form that allows you to translate specific information to be loaded into the file. The schools to be extracted are also selected from this form. Specific sections of the CDIF and SIF reports can be selected. It is highly suggested that all information extracted should be manually verified for accuracy. After the file is created it can then be imported into the CBEDS DEA software.
