SARC – School Accountability Report Card

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 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.  Cited from: CA Dept of Ed., from the following linkA Parent’s Guide to the SARC - this link provides further information regarding the School Accountability Report Card (SARC).

In 2012, the Governor of California signed into law Assembly Bill 1575 (“AB 1575”), which amended certain provisions of the Education Code and Government Code. One of those amendments requires schools to publish an annual notice to pupils, parents and guardians, employees and other interested parties regarding the requirements of AB 1575 (see Cal.Ed.Code section 49013(e)).

In compliance with Cal.Ed.Code section 49013(e), on an annual basis Santa Rosa Academy provides this notice to all required parties. Please click here for the document:  1575 Notice
