Downloadable SARC Data Files 2018–19

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

As a courtesy for schools and districts, the California Department of Education (CDE) makes School Accountability Report Card (SARC) data available. 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 local educational agencies (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 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 electronic partially pre-populated 2018–19 SARC template, located on the online SARC Web application. Approximately 90 percent of the data has already been pre-populated by the CDE. The SARC Web application, via the electronic SARC template, also provides LEAs the flexibility to upload a photo of the school's principal and provide a custom principal’s message. Additionally, this application provides graphical displays of some of the data shown on the SARC and provides an electronic, real-time translation of the information provided on the SARC in over 70 languages for those viewing the SARC.

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