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 has provided an online Web application of the 2012–13 SARC template. Approximately 75 percent of the data has been pre-populated by the CDE. LEAs are responsible for providing the remaining missing data. This new Web application also gives LEAs the flexibility to upload school photos and provide a custom principal’s message, as well as graphical displays of some of the data shown on the SARC. Additionally, this Web application provides an electronic, real-time translation of the information provided on the SARC in over 70 languages.
