State Accountability System

California Accountability Model & School Dashboard

California’s new accountability and continuous improvement system provides information about how local educational agencies and schools are meeting the needs of California’s diverse student population based on a concise set of measures. 

The state of California has developed a new accountability system, the California School Dashboard, that will report on the progress our District and our schools are making. The system can be accessed by visiting California School Dashboard from any Web browser. Please take the time to review the video tutorial and fast start guide to better understand the new system.

These exciting changes taking place in education will take time to fully implement.  The State is gradually rolling out additional measures. In the Fall, we will be adding college and career indicator results for our high schools as well as local reports detailing parent engagement and school climate. The California School Dashboard is integral to our continuous improvement efforts, and will be using the Dashboard in our ongoing conversations with our families and community.


California School Dashboard Report
The Dashboard contains reports that display the performance of local educational agencies (LEAs), schools, and student groups on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, weaknesses, and areas in need of improvement.

California Model Five-by-Five Grid Placement Reports
California's new accountability and continuous improvement system is based on a five-by-five colored table that produces 25 results using five colors. The reports display the schools' (by district) and student groups' placement on the five-by-five colored tables.


This video provides an overview of California's new multiple measures accountability system. It describes the measures in the new Dashboard Report and how performance and improvement are used to determine the performance colors.
