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.
Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP)
Senate Bill 98 (SB 98) established the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan), which is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several preexisting plans. The Learning Continuity Plan replaces the LCAP for the 2020–21 school year.
The Learning Continuity Plan memorializes the planning process already underway for the 2020–21 school year and includes descriptions of the following:
- Addressing gaps in learning
- Conducting meaningful stakeholder engagement
- Maintaining transparency
- Addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, and students experiencing homelessness
- Providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning
- Providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social emotional well-being
- Continuing to provide school meals for students
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?
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
