School Accountability Report Card (SARC)
Since 1988, the State of California has required that all public schools receiving state funding prepare and a distribute a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the SARC is to provide parents and the community with important information about public schools, including demographic data, class size information, fiscal and expenditure data, as well as academic information. SARC are released in the following academic year, and thus, are always one year behind.
A districtwide accountability summary report is provided through the California School Dashboard. The CA Dashboard contains information about student assessment results, high school graduation rates, teacher qualifications, and other indicators.
