Introducing California’s New Accountability Model & School Dashboard
California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 districts and schools. Called the California School Dashboard, the 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 based on 2013's Local Control Funding Formula. It is the next step in a series of major shifts in public education that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing and placed the focus on equity for all students. To learn more about California's accountability and continuous improvement efforts, visit the CDE Dashboard Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/cm/index.asp. The dashboard can be accessed at http://www.caschooldashboard.org.
