School Accountability Report Card (SARC) & Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
California public schools annually provide information about themselves to the community in the form of an annual School Accountability Report Card (SARC) allowing the public to evaluate and compare schools for student achievement, environment, resources and demographics.
Following state guidelines, the report cards are released once per year and focus on the previous academic year.
The SARC provides a variety of information to help the public evaluate and compare schools in several areas, including:
- Academic Performance
- School Safety
- Learning Climate
- Class Size
- Teacher and Staff Information
- Curriculum and Instruction
- Fiscal and Expenditure data
