SARCs & SPSAs

School Accountability Report Cards (SARC)

School Accountability Report Cards (SARC)

State law requires all public 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 public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals.  

What information does the SARC contain?
SARC provides background information about the school and its students. It summarizes the school's mission, goals, and accomplishments. State law requires SARCs to contain 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 date

All MEUSD schools' SARCs are available electronically via the links below. Copies are available upon request. The SARC is reported in English and translated for a second language as required for each school site.

School Plan for student achievement (SPSA)

School Plan for student achievement (SPSA)

The School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) identifies and addresses the instructional needs of students and specifies how categorical funds provided through the Consolidated Application will be used to accomplish the goals outlined in the plan. State guidelines require that the SPSA must:
  • Identify site-specific achievement goals based on a variety of student performance data.
  • Describe specific instructional strategies to accelerate student learning.
  • Describe the ways in which student progress will be monitored on a regular basis.
  • Identify interventions for students not achieving.
  • Determine the necessary professional development for staff.
  • Delineate strategies for parent communication and engagement.
  • Reflect estimated costs and funding sources.
  • Involve consultation with other site advisory groups.
 
State regulations require that the School Site Council (SSC) be the group responsible for developing and revising the SPSA in collaboration with the site instructional leadership team. Ongoing consultation with site advisory groups about student performance data, student needs, identified goals, appropriate interventions/preventions, and associated budgets is an integral part of the development and monitoring of the SPSA.
