REPORT CARD (SARC)
The California Department of Education requires that all California public schools, including Charter Schools, annually provide information about themselves to the community allowing the public to evaluate and compare schools for student achievement, environment, resources and demographics.
What information does the SARC contain?
Although there is great variation in the design of school report cards, they generally begin with a profile that provides background information about the school and its students. The profile usually summarizes the school's mission, goals, and accomplishments. State law requires that the SARC contain all of the following:
School safety and climate for learning information
School completion rates
Teacher and staff information
Curriculum and instruction descriptions
Postsecondary preparation information
Fiscal and expenditure data
In addition, NCLB requires that SARCs contain reports concerning the "adequate yearly progress" of students in achieving state academic achievement standards; Title 1 Program Improvement; graduation rates at the secondary level; and, starting with the SARCs to be published in 2004–05, the extent to which "highly qualified" teachers are teaching core academic subjects.
