Changes in assessing student learning
In October 2013, the state of California replaced the STAR testing program with the new Statewide Assessment System. SFUSD, along with all California school districts, began to test its students with this new system starting in 2014.
Students took online computer-based assessments created by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC). The assessments cover English Language Arts and math materials from the Common Core State Standards and are reported to the district, schools, teachers, and parents.

School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)
The School Accountability Report Card (SARC) provides an overview of each District school, including test scores, staff and student profiles. The SARCs for every District school can be downloaded from individual school profile pages. See a list of all our schools. If you should need a written copy of a SARC, you can obtain one from your school principal or contact the Research, Planning and Accountability Department at 415-241-6454. For SARCs from previous years, go here.
School Quality Improvement Index
Academic performance is only one of the many factors to consider when measuring school quality, and the new School Quality Improvement Index (“the Index”) embodies our more holistic approach to school and district accountability by including measures of social-emotional learning and school culture-climate in addition to academic achievement. The Index also makes more students visible by including results for any student group with 20 or more students.
