Former California Department of Education Accountability Systems

Academic Performance Index (API): The outdated cornerstone of California's Public Schools Accountability Act of 1999; measures the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of academic measures for 1999-2013.

Accountability Progress Reporting (APR): California's integrated accountability system that reports both the state Academic Performance Index (API), and the federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and Program Improvement (PI).

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP): The former statewide accountability system mandated by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 which requires each state to ensure that all schools and districts make Adequate Yearly Progress.


School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)
California public schools annually provide information about themselves to the community allowing the public to evaluate and compare schools for student achievement, environment, resources and demographics. The information available in the SARC is a reflection of the previous school year.

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Annual Update
California Education Code Section 52065 requires that the Superintendent post links to all local control and accountability plans approved by the governing boards of school districts and county boards of education on the Internet Web site of the Department.
 
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Annual Update Template shall be used to provide details regarding local educational agencies’ (LEAs) actions and expenditures to support pupil outcomes and overall performance pursuant to Education Code sections 52060, 52066, 47605, 47605.5, and 47606.5. The LCAP and Annual Update Template must be completed by all LEAs each year.  For school districts, pursuant to Education Code section 52060, the LCAP must describe, for the school district and each school within the district, goals and specific actions to achieve those goals for all pupils and each subgroup of pupils identified in Education Code section 52052, including pupils with disabilities, for each of the state priorities and any locally identified priorities.
 
 
MBUSD's 2016-2017 LCAPs were approved by the Board of Trustees at the January 18, 2017 meeting.

School Plans (SPSA)
Pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 64001 and the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) schools that receive state and federal funds through the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) and ESEA Program Improvement funds consolidate all school plans into the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
 
This Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) for the 2016-2017 school year will also serve as the Interim SPSA for the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.  In the fall of 2017, the SPSA will be updated and revised after new student assessment data becomes available and state and federal approved categorical budget funding allocations are projected.  The revised SPSA for the 2017-2018 school year will be brought to the Board for approval in December 2017.  MCHS's 2016-2017 School Plans were approved by the Board of Trustees at the January 18, 2017 meeting.

Local Educational Agency Plan (LEA Plan)
Required by all local educational agencies (LEAs) in California that receive funds under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. Most of the provisions of the re-authorized ESEA (1965) will not take effect until the 2017–18 school year. The Local Educational Agency (LEA) Plan process remains the same at this time.
