School Accountability Reports

School Profile

School Accountability report Card (SARC)

A School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is published each year for the most recently completed school year for each school in the district. The profile provides information about the school and its students including demographic data, school safety information, academic achievement data, school completion rates, class sizes, teacher and staff information, curriculum and instruction information, postsecondary preparation information, and fiscal and expenditure data.

The 2019-2020 SARCs were approved by the Board of Trustees at their regular meeting on January 28, 2021.

What is WASC?

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges is the institution in charge of confirming the quality of schools and granting school accreditation. 

In the 2017-2018 school year, Santa Clara High conducted a Self Study, analyzing our areas of strengths and areas in which we need improvement using feedback from teachers, staff, parents, students, and community members.  As part of this process, we created a 6 Year Action Plan to guide our efforts.  In March 2018, a visiting team came to SCHS to confirm our report.  Based on our Self Study and the visiting team's report, SCHS was granted a six year accreditation (2018-2024) with a revisit to confirm progress after three years.  In 2020-2021, the school prepared a midterm report outlining our progress on the 2018-2024 Plan.  A visiting team reviewed the report and visited the school (virtually due to COVID-19).  Based on our midterm report and the report of the midterm visiting team, WASC reaffirmed our accreditation in April 2021.
