About School Accountability Report Card (SARC)
SARC is a School Accountability Report Card that every school in California must prepare and distribute every year. It is a document that provides important information about each school to parents and the community. It covers topics such as academic performance, school safety, teacher qualifications, and student demographics. A SARC helps a school to report on its progress in achieving its goals and to communicate with stakeholders. A SARC also allows the public to evaluate and compare schools based on various indicators.
From the CDE Website: "Since November 1988, state law has required that schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC. A similar requirement is also contained in the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each 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."
