About The New California Accountability System
California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about schools. The New California School Dashboard site features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success including test scores, graduation rates, English learner progress, and suspension rates. The Dashboard is part of California's new school accountability system that places a focus on equity for all students.
In the past, accountability systems for districts and schools relied solely on test scores. The California School Dashboard report provides information on different aspects of student performance, which will give a more complete picture of a school's progress. The Dashboard also reports on growth to show a school's trajectory over time. Metrics and reports such as graduation rates and chronic absenteeism will be added over time. To learn more about California's accountability and continuous improvement efforts, visit the CDE Dashboard Web page.
While schools are making progress in many key areas, there is always more work to do. Meeting goals will take a united effort and we, at Redlands Unified School District, are looking forward to working with families to ensure success for every student.
