School Accountability Report Cards

The School Accountability Report Card (SARC) was established by Proposition 98, an initiative passed by California voters in 1998. This report card is issued annually by local school boards for each school in California. It provides parents and other interested community members with information on at least 17 aspects of the school, its resources, successes and the areas in which improvements are needed.
