Accountability Reports

California School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)

Every public school in California files an annual "report card" that provides background information about the school and its students. The profile also presents the district's mission and the school's goals that school administrators, staff, and parents have specifically set for the school.

The report cards also address the following nine major areas:

  • Demographic information
  • School safety and climate for learning
  • Academic data
  • School completion
  • Class size
  • Teacher and staff information
  • Curriculum and instruction
  • Post-secondary preparation
  • Fiscal and expenditure data

School Climate Surveys

Each year the district surveys students, staff, and families to provide a comprehensive, data-driven, decision-making process to guide efforts to improve school climate, learning supports, and engagement, as well as identify and increase the quality of health, prevention, and youth development programs.

In 2017-2018, the district implemented the Youth Truth Survey tool. In years, prior, the district used the California Healthy Kids Survey by West Ed.

Local Control and Accountability Plan

As part of the effort to provide more consistent funding to school districts, the California State Legislature and the governor created the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) in 2013. The LCFF requires that each school district produce an annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP sets forth goals and actions created with parent and community input.
