School Accountability Report Card (SARC)


Sarcs for the 2011 12 school year

SARCs for the 2011-12 School Year

  • Prop. 98 requires that all public schools annually produce a SARC

  • The State Board of Education (SBE) annually approves a template that identifies the data elements that are statutorily required, including:

    • Information about the school (enrollment, grades offered, etc.)

    • School Climate

    • School Facilities

    • Teacher and Support Staff Credentials and Assignments

    • Curriculum and Instructional Materials

    • School Finance

    • Accountability and Assessment Results

    • Postsecondary Preparation

Sarcs for the 2011 12 school year cont1

SARCs for the 2011-12 School Year (cont.)

  • Historically, CDE provided local educational agencies (LEAs) with access to a partially populated SARCs

  • In 2010, due to budget cuts, CDE stopped providing partially populated SARCs


Sarcs for the 2011 12 school year cont2

SARCs for the 2011-12 School Year (cont.)

  • In 2011, CDE leveraged the Ed-Data partnership to provide a partially populated SARC on the Ed-data Web site

  • Ed-Data is an existing partnership between CSIS, EdSource and CDE

  • The Ed-Data partnership will continue to produce partially populated SARCs

  • We anticipate that the SARCs will be available on the Ed-Data Web site in late October for LEA use


Sarcs for the 2011 12 school year cont3

SARCs for the 2011-12 School Year (cont.)

  • SARC template with all data collected by CDE will be made available for download at the Ed-Data Web site:

    • Target date is November 1

    • http://www.ed-data.k12.ca.us/Pages/Home.aspx

    • Will be an optional data collection where LEAs can complete the LEA portion of the SARC and CDE would prepare a final SARC with LEA and CDE data


Sarcs for the 2011 12 school year cont8

SARCs for the 2011-12 School Year (cont.)

  • Revise/modernize SARC template

    • Longer term discussion

    • Foundational question for the revisions

      • How best to display the data that is meaningful to parents and policy makers?


Sarcs for the 2011 12 school year cont9

SARCs for the 2011-12 School Year (cont.)

  • Develop a summary report with rating information about schools

    • Currently doing a survey of how other states display school data

    • As this process commences, CDE will seek public comment and stakeholder input


Accountability program update

SARC

  • The Analysis, Measurement, and Accountability Reporting Division will be bringing a board item to the SBE in January 2013 to discuss our progress on these improvements


Lea accountability report cards

LEA Accountability Report Cards

  • New stand-alone report card in response to federal monitoring visit findings

  • The CDE will provide all of the data for the LEA Accountability Report Card and will host all on the CDE Web site

  • 2011-12 version should be available in?

Title 5 regulations

Title 5 Regulations

In January 2012, the SBE adopted regulations that define continuous enrollment for accountability purposes. These regulations do not, in any way, mandate local policies about enrolling or exiting students in the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS).


Title 5 regulations cont

Title 5 Regulations (cont.)

California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 5 Section 1039.2, specifies that a student is considered continuously enrolled if the student was enrolled in the same school or LEA from Fall Census Day to the first day of testing without a gap of enrollment of 30 or more consecutive calendar days. This definition was first applied with the 2011 Base API.


Continuous enrollment1

Continuous Enrollment

Continuous enrollment is determined by using enrollment and exit code data from CALPADS. For the October 2012 accountability release, data was extracted from CALPADS on August 15, 2012.


Continuous enrollment cont

Continuous Enrollment (cont.)

  • The CDE will extract CALPADS enrollment and exit code data on two more occasions. The tentative schedule is:

    • December 20, 2012

    • February 26, 2013

  • The CDE will use the extracted data, along with corrected demographic data, to update AYP and API Reports

Reassignment of test scores

Reassignment of Test Scores

  • SB 219 requires assessment and other accountability results of some students enrolled in an Alternative Education Program (AEP) to be assigned back to a school or LEA of residence in the calculation of the API


Reassignment of test scores cont

Reassignment of Test Scores (cont.)

In January 2012, the SBE adopted CCR, Title 5, Section 1039.3, which specifies how students’ STAR and CAHSEE test scores will be reassigned


Criteria for reassignment of test scores

Criteria for Reassignment of Test Scores

  • STAR and CAHSEE results are assigned to a non-AEP school and/or a non-AEP LEA of residence if both of the student:

    • Was referred after Fall Census Day to an AEP school (i.e., exited using student exit code T167 in the CALPADS) and

    • Took the STAR and/or CAHSEE at the AEP school

Future use of calpads for accountability reporting

Future Use of CALPADS for Accountability Reporting

  • In coming years, the CDE will use additional CALPADS data for API and AYP reporting:

    • Race and Ethnicity

    • English Learner (EL) Status

    • Socioeconomically Disadvantaged

    • Special Education

    • Gender


Benefits of using calpads for accountability reporting

Benefits of Using CALPADS for Accountability Reporting

  • Reduced workload for assessment Pre-ID

  • No costs for correcting demographic data in CALPADS


Five year cohort graduation rate

Five-Year Cohort Graduation Rate

  • In January 2012, the SBE approved an amendment to California’s Consolidated State Application Accountability Workbook to add the use of a five-year cohort graduation rate for 2013 AYP determinations

  • In February 2012, the SBE and CDE submitted the amendment to the U.S. Department of Education (ED) for approval


Five year cohort graduation rate cont

Five-Year Cohort Graduation Rate (cont.)

  • The updated January 2013 AYP reports will include the 2012 five-year cohort graduation rates and growth targets for the 2013 AYP determinations

  • Meeting the four-year or five-year cohort graduation rate will qualify as meeting the graduation rate criteria for AYP


Five year cohort graduation rate cont1

Five-Year Cohort Graduation Rate (cont.)

  • The five-year cohort graduation rate will be calculated using a similar formula as the four-year rate

  • The five-year cohort graduation rate will be used as an alternative method for meeting the graduation rate criteria if the eligibility criterion is met


Five year cohort graduation rate cont2

Five-Year Cohort Graduation Rate (cont.)

  • The five-year cohort graduation rate criterion is:

    • The number of new graduates in the fifth year cohort is equal to or greater than the number of students who transfer out, emigrate, or die during the fifth year


New api indicators

New API Indicators

  • The CDE will convene the Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) Advisory Committee to discuss incorporating the following indicators into the API:

    • High school graduation rates

    • Middle school dropout rates (grade 8, and grade 9 for schools where grade 9 is the highest grade offered)


Senate bill 1458

Senate Bill 1458

  • Senate Bill 1458 was sent to the Governor’s desk on August 29, 2012. If signed, the bill would require:

    • Assessments constitute 60% of a high school API beginning with the 2016 API calculations

    • New variables be incorporated into the API one full academic year after the state board approves the addition of a new variable
