OUSD Charter School SARCs
OUSD Charter School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)
Although charter schools are required by the California Constitution to prepare a SARC as a condition of receiving state funds, charter schools are not required to comply with various SARC content and distribution requirements that are contained in the California Education Code. Charter schools receiving federal funds are required, however, to prepare an annual report card that contains particular reporting elements that are specified in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation.
For comparability purposes, all charter schools in California are encouraged to prepare and distribute SARCs as provided for in state law.
How To Locate A School's SARC:
Beginning the 2012-13 school year, the California Department of Education (CDE) has implemented an online web application. This web application provides an electronic, real-time translation of the information provided on the SARC in over 70 languages. Visit the SARC Web Application External link http://www.sarconline.
