School Accountability Report Cards

  • About 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 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.
    Although there is great variation in the design of school report cards, they generally begin with a profile that provides background information about the school and its students. The profile usually summarizes the school's mission, goals, and accomplishments. State law requires that the SARC contain all of the following:

    • Demographic data
    • School safety and climate for learning information
    • Academic data
    • School completion rates
    • Class sizes
    • Teacher and staff information
    • Curriculum and instruction descriptions
    • Postsecondary preparation information
    • Fiscal and expenditure data

    In addition, NCLB requires that SARC's contain reports concerning the adequate yearly progress of students in achieving state academic achievement standards; Title 1 Program Improvement; graduation rates at the secondary level; and the extent to which highly qualified teachers are teaching core academic subjects. Each year, we share important facts about schools with parents, guardians, and the community at large. Early in the fall, we produce Fact Sheets that summarize key facts from the previous school year (the most recent year for which we have complete data). Later in the year, we produce longer reports that provide details about our students, teachers, facilities, financial resources, and educational programs.
