Support Personnel Accountability Report CardGives a school site student support team the opportunity to publish a document that describes their efforts to support student career and college readiness.
The Support Personnel Accountability Report Card (SPARC) is a voluntary, continuous improvement process that provides Student Support Teams—with the support of their principal—an opportunity to collaboratively publish a document that identifies the impact their programs are having on students’ career and college readiness.
Modeled after the School Accountability Report Card (SARC), the SPARC was initially developed by an advisory group of Los Angeles County counselors, counselor supervisors, counselor educators, and the California Department of Education staff.
Schools use the SPARC for:
- Presenting a self-evaluation of their student support system
- Promoting school programs to administration, school board, and community
- Preparing reports for school accreditation, grants, or awards recognition
- Supporting school site efforts to prepare students for careers and college
