    About the SARC By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC. For more information about SARC requirements, see the California

    Department of Education (CDE) SARC Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/sa/.

    For more information about the LCFF or LCAP, see the CDE LCFF Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/lc/.

    For additional information about the school, parents/guardians and community members should contact the school principal or the district office.

    Quality, Currency, Availability of Textbooks and Instructional Materials (School Year 2016-17) According to California Education Code and Board policy, the Board of Trustees for Golden Plains Unified School District adopts textbooks from the current State Board of Education-adopted textbook list. Textbooks are consistent with the content and cycles of the curriculum frameworks adopted by the SBE. Grade K-8 textbooks are adopted districtwide. Each elementary site is represented on the committee that is coordinated at the District level, while the comprehensive and continuation high schools select instructional materials by curricular department. For consistency and to promote vertical articulation, the high school makes every effort to adhere to the same adoption cycle as the elementary schools. The various site and District committees consider the SBE-adopted list of textbooks, attend county roll-outs, and meet in small site-level focus groups to compare each program to the needs of District students. Teachers make the ultimate decision in the program that is subsequently recommended to the Board for adoption, with the District office staff coordinating purchase and distribution procedures. After local selection and Board adoption, publisher representatives provide staff development training for teachers in the effective use of the textbooks. All students have access to their own textbooks and instructional materials. Students are held responsible for their assigned textbook for each subject, are allowed to take textbooks home, and are expected to return the books in good condition at the end of the school year.
