Philosophy, Goals, Objectives and Comprehensive Plans


School Accountability Report Card



The Governing Board recognizes its responsibility to inform parents/guardians and the community about the conditions, needs, and progress at each county program and to provide data by which parents/guardians can make meaningful comparisons between schools.  The process of gathering and analyzing data also provides opportunities for school and county staff to review achievements and identify areas for improvement.


The Board shall annually issue a school accountability report card (SARC) for each school site.  (Education Code 35256)


The Board shall annually approve the SARCs for all county schools and shall evaluate the data contained in the SARCs as part of the Board’s regular review of the effectiveness of the district’s programs, personnel, and fiscal operations.


The Superintendent or designee shall develop strategies for communicating the information contained in the SARCs to all stakeholders, including opportunities for staff and the community to discuss their content.



Notification and Dissemination of SARCs


The Superintendent or designee shall annually publicize the issuance of the SARCs and notify parents/guardians that a paper copy will be provided upon request. On or before February 1 of each year, the Superintendent or designee shall make the SARCs available in paper copy and on the Internet.  (Education Code 35256)
