Both state and federal programs require that accountability data be reviewed as part of an ongoing process of continuous improvement. Additional metrics are required to be reviewed as part of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. These accountability measures are currently being revised and improved at the local, state and national levels.

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Local Control and Accountability Plan is a tool for local educational agencies to set goals, plan actions, and leverage resources to meet those goals to improve student outcomes. The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). In the Wiseburn Unified School District, parents, educators, employees and the community work together to establish this plan.
School Accountability Report Card (SARC)
SARC provides parents and the community with information about the conditions and progress being made at each individual school in your resident school district.
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 SARC. A similar requirement is also contained in the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. The purposeof 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.
What information does the SARC contain?
- 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
