School Accountability Report Card (SARC)
Public schools in California are required to provide information to the community in the form of an annual School Accountability Report Card (SARC). SARCs provide data about a school’s student achievement, environment, resources, and demographics. Your principal can answer any questions regarding your school’s SARC. Parents or guardians may request a hard copy of the School Accountability Report Card at each respective school office.
How to access your school’s SARC:
- Go to sarconline.org.
- Enter the school or city name in the search box at the upper right hand side of the page.
- Click on the “View SARC” icon to review the school’s information.
- To translate, select your preferred language in the drop-down menu entitled “Select Language”.
Single Plan for Student Achievement
Every year, each school in San José Unified develops a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). This plan includes the academic goals the school will be working on during the year and shows how the school will be using funds allocated to the site by the district and state.
The SPSA is written with the help of the School Site Council, which then approves the final document and forwards it to the Board of Education for their approval.
