Ex. This page displays School Enrollment by Gender, Grade Level & Race/Ethnicity.

Caution

  • This report uses a mix of data from Illuminate & the State Research files. There are notes on each page as to which data source it pulls from.
  • If you try to access the API Estimator and no sites are listed in the site selection menu, the school/district needs to edit the site(s) under Site Management and fill in the State School ID field with the full 14-digit CDS code for the school. Often the CDS code is shown with dashes, but it should be the 14 digit code with no spaces or dashes. For example, 30-66670-6030324 is what is normally reported, but it should be input as 30666706030324.
  • If the CDS code is filled in, but the site still doesn't show in the menu, they need to verify that the site has the correct CDS code, and that the raw data file from the state actually refers to that same CDS code.
