2009-10 SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARDS (SARC) FOR CORNELL, MARIN, OCEAN VIEW SCHOOLS, ALBANY MIDDLE SCHOOL, ALBANY HIGH SCHOOL, AND MACGREGOR HIGH SCHOOL

Since November 1988, state law has required all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC. A similar requirement is also contained in the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school.
State law requires that the SARC contain all of the following:
• Demographic data
• School safety and climate for learning information
• Academic data
• School completion rates
• Class sizes
• Teacher and staff information
• Curriculum and instruction descriptions
• Postsecondary preparation information
• Fiscal and expenditure data
In addition, NCLB requires that SARCs contain reports concerning the "adequate yearly progress" of students in achieving state academic achievement standards; Title 1 Program Improvement; graduation rates at the secondary level; and the extent to which "highly qualified" teachers are teaching core academic subjects.
