Downloadable SARC Data Files

Template table names, downloadable data files, and mapping document 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 blank SARC template and a SARC Data Layout document. The SARC Data Layout is a mapping document that indicates 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. While the CDE provides data where data are available, LEAs are responsible for the completion of the entire SARC and for the accuracy of all SARC data made available to the public.

The CDE has provided an online pre-populated SARC Web application of the 2015–16 SARC template. Approximately 75 percent of the data has been pre-populated by the CDE. LEAs are responsible for providing the remaining missing data. The SARC Web application also gives LEAs the flexibility to upload a principal's photo and provide a custom principal’s message, as well as graphical displays of some of the data shown on the SARC. Additionally, the SARC Web application provides an electronic, real-time translation of the information provided on the SARC in over 70 languages.

The following links provide the necessary tools to populate a SARC:
