School Accountability Report Card

In November 1988, California voters passed Proposition 98, known as The Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act. This initiative provides California’s public schools with a stable source of funding. In return, the requirement is, annually all public schools in California prepare SARCs and disseminate them to the public. SARCs intend to provide the public with important information about each public school and to communicate a school’s progress in achieving its goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.

At Tulare Union, the SARC begins with a profile that provides background information about the school and our students. The profile summarizes the school’s mission, goals, and accomplishments. State law requires that the SARC contain all of the following:

  • Principal’s Message about Tulare Union
  • Student Performance and Accountability
  • School Climate
  • School Facilities
  • Teachers
  • Support Staff
  • Curriculum and Instruction Materials
  • School and District Finances
  • School Completion and Post-secondary Preparation
  • Instructional Planning, Professional Development and Scheduling
