This site reports data for California's K-12 public school system only.

California MapNote: Ed-Data is getting an overhaul! For the latest data, please visit We are no longer posting new data on this site. However we will keep this site available as a source of historical data and comparisons as long as possible.

California’s public education system is immense: more than six million students in about 9,900 schools and programs that county offices of education (COEs) provide. These are governed by almost 1,000 elected school and county boards and regulated by a complex Education Code.

These Ed-Data Profiles provide a comprehensive picture of each school, district and county, with statewide totals and links to additional data or explanations. The Profiles are organized in three sections: General Information, Students, and Staffing. Click on the tabs to move between them.

This countywide profile is a summary of all schools/districts in the county, including those run by county offices. Information about programs run by county offices is included under District Profiles; county office programs are, however, not part of the Compare Districts function. Financial information for county offices is on the county tab (Financial Reports for County Office). Click here to learn how COEs provide fiscal oversight and assistance to school districts.
