California's method of assessing local school and district progress is known as the California School Dashboard.
The Dashboard is part of the state accountability and continuous improvement system that moves California from a single score to multiple measures and from a focus on the average of all students’ performance to equitable outcomes for each student group. The Dashboard is essentially a report card for local schools and districts that takes a more holistic look at the many performance areas that are key to preparing students for college and career after 12th grade.
ACOE has created a series of videos to assist school communities and families in better understanding the indicators measured in the Dashboard.
