2015–16 Edition Additional Ordering Window.
The Additional Ordering Window is now open. Districts may place one Additional Order through the secure District Portal each month.

2015–16 Edition Secure District Portal Passwords.
Passwords to the secure District Portal were reset and sent on July 1, 2015. An e-mail with the district’s username and a separate e-mail with the password were sent to the designated CELDT District Coordinator. To have the e-mails resent, contact the CELDT Customer Support Center.
2015–16 Edition Local Scoring Tool (LST).
The LST is now available. Use this calculation tool to prepare a Preliminary Local Student Score Report for students who take the CELDT as an Initial Assessment (IA). The LST is available via the Quick Links section on the CELDT Web Site.

2015–16 Edition Scoring Training of Trainers (STOT) Workshops.
Registration for STOT statewide workshops is now open. Dates and locations are posted on the Workshop Locations Web page.

To register for a workshop, log on to the District Portal and select the STOT link.
2014–15 Edition Annual Assessment (AA) Window Summary Reports.
Due to the CALPADS merge process, the AA Window Summary Reports will be shipped to districts August through September 2015. Contact the CELDT Customer Support Center if your district has not received these reports by Thursday, September 10, 2015.
On-Your-Own Shipping (i.e., districts shipping scorable documents via their carrier without using the online scorable Request a Pickup application) is not necessary unless the shipping deadlines for the close of the AA or IA windows are not met (October and June administration months).
