Accountability

The State of California requires all public schools to publish accountability reports in several areas. The sections below provide a brief explanation of each report as well as links to the actual documents.

School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)

Each year, every school in California must make their School Accountability Report Card (SARC) available for the public to vew online. These report cards provide a snapshot of each school's performance for the given year and allow the public to compare one school to another using standardized measures.

Local Control and Accountability Plans

The Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) are designed to outline our schools’ actions and expenditures to support student outcomes and overall performance. The LCAPs are three-year plans, which are reviewed and updated annually. In the plans, charter schools must describe goals and specific actions to achieve those goals for all students.

Education Protection Account 

Proposition 30 was approved by the voters of California in 2012 and grants all K-12 schools the sole authority to determine how the funds received from the Education Protection Account (EPA) are spent, but with the following provisions:

  1. The spending plan must be approved by the governing board during a public meeting.
  2. EPA funds cannot be used for the salaries or benefits of administrators or any other administrative costs (as determined through the account code structure).
  3. Each year, the local agency must publish on its website an accounting of how much money was received from the EPA and how the funds were expended.
