California School Dashboard
The state’s new accountability system was created to assist stakeholders in engaging with Tustin Unified in productive conversations around the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The new system, based on multiple measures, is a byproduct of the Local Control Funding Formula passed in 2013 that requires districts to align academic programs and district services with their spending plans. Performance on these multiple measures will be reported through the California School Dashboard.
The following video tutorial is a brief description of the California School Dashboard which provides information on navigating the California School Dashboard Web site.
Equity is at the heart of the new accountability system and changes how accountability is measured. Performance is measured by growth and achievement and in the new method, student performance includes multiple measures that go beyond test scores. This new approach gives a more complete picture of a school’s progress.
