A new website, called the California School Dashboard, will feature easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, and more.

California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 districts and schools – including ours. It's called the California School Dashboard, and it's coming March 2017. 

The Dashboard is the next step in series of major shifts in public education as a result of 2013's Local Control Funding Formula. California has raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing and placed the focus on equity for all students. The site features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English learning progress and suspension rates.

To learn more about California's accountability and continuous improvement efforts, visit http://www.cde.ca.gov/dashboard/.

NOTE: A letter from the Superintendent is being sent to parents on Thursday, March 9th. It can also be seen in the e-flyers links.
