Beginning in November of 1988, California law requires all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a School Accountability Report Card or "SARC." 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 its goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators. A printed version is available upon request.
