School Accountability Report Cards

Every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC), by February 1 of each year.
The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. 
• For more information about SARC requirements, see the California Department of Education (CDE) SARC webpage at
• For additional information about the school, contact the school principal or the district office.
DataQuest is an online data tool located on the CDE DataQuest Web page at that contains additional information about an individual school and comparisons of the school to the district, the county, and the state. Specifically, DataQuest is a dynamic system that provides reports for accountability (e.g., state Academic Performance Index [API], federal Adequate Yearly Progress [AYP]), test data, enrollment, high school graduates, dropouts, course enrollments, staffing, and data regarding English learners. 
Internet Access 
Internet access is available at public libraries and other locations that are publicly accessible (e.g., the California State Library).  Access to the Internet at libraries and public locations is generally provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Other use restrictions may include the hours of operation, the length of time that a workstation may be used (depending on availability), the types of software programs available on a workstation, and the ability to print documents.
