These Ed-Data reports enable you to access school districts' financial information in a variety of ways. Beginning with 2003-04, school districts reported their financial information in a standard format called the Standardized Account Code Structure, or SACS. The uniform use of these codes improves the ability of school districts and the state to analyze school expenditures and extract more useful information for policymakers, educators, and the public.
The instructions for SACS are in the California School Accounting Manual (CSAM). The Ed-Data reports provide links to the relevant definitions in CSAM.

Districts report their revenues and expenditures to the California Department of Education (CDE) prior to the completion of their annual audit. Every effort is made by the CDE to catch errors or misinterpretations. However, the unaudited information is not changed after it has been certified and released by the CDE. Therefore, this report may include some uncorrected data.
- All Funds - Revenues and Expenditures within a district budget.
- General Fund- Revenues, Expenditures, and Other Financing Sources/Uses plus Current Expense of Education.
- Activity - Expenditures by Activity (General Fund only), such as instruction, pupil services, and general administration.
- Instructional Programs - Expenditures by Instructional Program (General Fund only), such as regular K-12 education, Special Education, and Vocational Education.
- Revenue Sources - General Fund revenues by specific program or revenue source, such as Class Size Reduction, Gifted and Talented Education, and Staff Development.
