Final Reminder: December 1, 2017 California School Dashboard Deadline

  • Print

November 27, 2017 For the Fall 2017 California School Dashboard, LEAs, including charter public schools, must report on their California School Dashboard local indicators by December 1, 2017. Charter schools must report on the following priorities: Priority 1: Basic Services, Priority 2: Implementation of State Standards, Priority 3: Parent Engagement, and Priority 6: School Climate (suspension, expulsions, etc.).

There are three performance levels for ranking progress on these priorities: Met, Not Met, and Not Met for two or more years. LEAs, including charter public schools, must measure their progress annually on these priorities and report the progress at a regularly scheduled meeting of the board. They do not require board approval but minutes should indicate these were reported. If this data is not entered by the December 1st cutoff indicators will automatically show as "Not Met" on the dashboard.

It is important to note that ALL charter schools, including Dashboard Alternative School Status (DASS) (formerly Alternative Schools Accountability Model) schools, must submit Local Indicators by December 1, 2017 or they will receive a "not met" in their Fall 2018 dashboard. This will require DASS Charter Schools to request log-in credentials to their Dashboard.

The CDE will be hosting a series of webinars on various local indicators in early November: https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/cm/fall2017webinars.asp
