California School Dashboard

In 2018, California launched the California School Dashboard, a website designed to help communities across the state access important data about K–12 districts and schools.

The site features a wealth of information on test scores, graduation rates, school attendance, college/career readiness and suspensions. The Dashboard is part of California’s new school accountability and support framework that is empowering local communities to address the needs of their local schools.

School Accountability Report Cards

Since November 1988, state law has required all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC. A similar requirement is also contained in the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.
