Public schools throughout California are required to provide information about themselves to the community in the form of an annual School Accountability Report Card (SARC). These report cards provide a variety of data to allow the public to evaluate and compare schools in several important areas:
- demographic information
- school safety and climate for learning
- academic data
- class size
- teacher and staff information
- professional development
- fiscal and expenditure data
The report cards, which follow state’s guidelines and document template, are issued each spring and focus on the previous academic year. A SARC is typically 12–14 pages long. In previous years the district also produced a two-page summary version for each school, but has discontinued them this year as a result of changes to the format and content of the SARC.
