What is a School Accountability Report Card (SARC)?
Since November 1988, state law has required all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). A similar requirement is also contained in the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The purpose of the SARC is to provide parents and the community with important information about Vandenberg Middle School. The SARC is an effective way for our 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.
What information does the SARC contain?
* Demographic data
* School safety and
climate for learning information
* Academic data
* Class sizes
* Teacher and staff information
* Curriculum and instruction descriptions
* Fiscal and expenditure data
