SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARDEvery public school in California files an annual "report card" that provides background information about the school and its students. The profile also presents the mission and goals that school administrators, staff, and parents have specifically set for the district and 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
*It is a state requirement that SARC's be posted annually (February 1). Current reports evaluate the previous school year. The California Department of Education has a Parents Guide to SARC's posted on their site.
