Downloadable SARC Data Files

Template table names and downloadable data files to populate School Accountability Report Card (SARC) Reports.

Each year the California Department of Education (CDE) makes School Accountability Report Card (SARC) data available to local educational agencies (LEAs). The CDE also provides a SARC template and mapping document that indicate where select data for the template are located within specific available data files. Where the CDE maintains data previously reported by LEAs, the data have been included in SARC downloadable data files for local SARC development use. Where SARC required data are not maintained by the CDE, notations are made in the template and mapping document. LEAs are responsible for the school and LEA SARC content made available to the public.

What’s New. . .

The CDE, in collaboration with its Ed-Data partners, Ed Source and the Fiscal Crisis & Management Assistance Team, are providing downloadable pre-populated SARC templates in 2011–12. The downloadable SARC templates, accessible through the Ed-Data Web site, use the same data provided on this Web page. For more information, visit Ed-Data (Outside Source).
