School Accountability Report Card (SARC)

  • Since November 1988, state law has required that schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC.  The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each 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.  

     

    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

     

    School report cards must be updated annually and published by February 1.
