State Unveils New ‘High-Tech Report Card’ for Schools

The California Department of Education today  made public its new system for evaluating how local school districts are performing.

Local educators say it is more complex but also more helpful.

Cliff DeGraw, the Petaluma City Schools Assistant Superintendent, likes the five-colored grids that are used to track districts’ progress in each of the areas being analyzed.

State Education Department spokesman Robert Ochs, notes that some additional focus areas will be added to the Dashboard in the months ahead.

Information about the new Dashboard can be found here. The School Accountability Report Cards (SARC) for individual schools are in this searchable document.
