The California Basic Educational Data System - Online Reporting Application (CBEDS-ORA) 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 California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS) is an annual data collection administered in October. CBEDS data are reported through an Online Reporting Application (CBEDS-ORA). The purpose of CBEDS is to collect data about schools and districts, as well as some aggregate data on students and staff.
The Aeries Create CBEDS ORA Files form in Aeries allows you to create the SIF and CDIF file. 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.
The following information can be collected:
1. The County/District Information Form (CDIF) requests information on the following:
A. Classified staff - Number of district staff members by type, gender, and racial/ethnic designation. Pulls from the Staff (STF) and Staff Assignments (STA) forms.
2. The School Information Form (SIF) requests information on the following:

D. Educational calendar - Type of calendar on which the school operates. Also the schools start and end dates. Pulls from the School Information (LOC) form and the Calendar (DAY) table.
Note: The Create CBEDS ORA Files should be run from the current year database. All the information collected is for the current school year.
