Test Scores and Accountability » Accountability


California's integrated accountability system reports both the state Academic Performance Index (API), and the federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and Program Improvement (PI).

School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)
California public schools annually provide information about themselves to the community allowing the public to evaluate and compare schools for student achievement, environment, resources and demographics. The information available in the SARC is a reflection of the previous school year.

School Plans (SPSA)
The Single Plan for Student Achievement, more commonly known as the School Plan, is a California Education Code sections 41507, 41572, and 64001 and federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requirement. Each school must consolidate all school plans for programs funded through the School and Library Improvement Block Grant, the Pupil Retention Block Grant, the Consolidated Application, and ESEA Program Improvement into the Single Plan for Student Achievement.
