School Accountability Report Card   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board shall annually issue a School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for each school site. (Education Code 35256)

Such report cards shall be designed to inform parents/guardians and the community about conditions, needs, and progress at each school and to help provide data by which parents/guardians can make meaningful comparisons between schools. The Board believes that the process of developing the report cards gives the school staff opportunities to review achievements, identify areas for improvement, enlist local support and establish a vision for the future.

The Superintendent or designee shall maintain a process for developing annual report cards for each school site with input from all segments of the school community. The Superintendent or designee shall develop strategies for communicating the information contained in the cards to all stakeholders, including opportunities for staff and the community to discuss their content.
