District Reports & Accountability

School Accountability Report Cards (SARC)

State law requires all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC. The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.

What information does the SARC contain?

The SARC provides background information about the school and its students. It usually summarizes the school’s mission, goals, and accomplishments. State law requires that the SARC contain information about demographics; school safety; academic data; class sizes; teacher and staff information; curriculum and instruction; and fiscal data.

A school’s SARC can be found on the link below.  A printed version is available upon request.

School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)

The School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is a document that represents a school’s cycle of continuous improvement of student performance. The annual process of developing, reviewing, and updating the SPSA includes a comprehensive analysis of data of the most recent state and district benchmark data with input collected at staff meetings, grade-level team meetings, School Site Council (SSC) meetings, PTA meetings, and English Learner Advisory Council meetings. School goals, and the actions necessary to achieve them, are then developed. The plan also addresses funding and proposed expenditures related to federal categorical programs. All SPSAs are tightly aligned with the goals and actions of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which will magnify our efforts to attain greater student achievement, positive school cultures and climates, and involved parents and community members.  Each year, the SSC and the local governing board approve the SPSA.

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a planning tool for our district.  The LCAP describes the district’s overall vision for our students.  It establishes annual goals for all students, describes what actions will be taken to achieve those goals, and details how funds will be spent to increase or improve services.  The plan also assesses each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes. 

Planning Documents

Stakeholder Involvement

Stakeholder input is a vital part in the process of revising the LCAP each year.   Input is continually gathered at a variety of parent and stakeholder groups, including the District Advisory Council (DAC), District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC), District Staff Council (DSC), Classified Staff Council (CSC), and School Site Council (SSC) meetings during the year.  Annual parent, student, and staff survey results also provide valuable information used to refine our plan.

Parent/Family Survey May 2021

La Mesa-Spring Valley Schools values parent perspectives, and we are committed to engaging parents in the development of goals and activities in each school’s School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and of those that are in our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Our Parent/Family Survey for the 2020-21 school year is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Overview of Parent/Family Survey 2020-2021

  • Parent surveys were widely distributed (via email links and text messages) in May 2021
  • Surveys were available in both English and Spanish.
  • 4,958 (409 in Spanish) surveys were received.
  • The first 13 survey questions were done on a Likert scale where there were 5 response options. The choices ranged from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree.  This style of survey presented a holistic view of people’s opinions and their level of agreement.
  • The survey included an open-ended question to make sure that an area was not missed.
  • Principals were provided site data which they analyzed and included in their 2021-22 SPSA.

Key Finding-District Level of Parent/Family Survey 2020-2021

Overall parent satisfaction was high in all three categories (Support for Academic Learning – 92%, Sense of Community – 91%, Sense of Safety – 87%). 

The highest percentages were found in the areas of school staff being helpful and children feeling welcome at school.  Both questions resulted in 96% of our parents agreeing with these statements.

School staff welcoming parents’ suggestions and school discipline being fair were the two statements with the lowest percentage of parents agreeing (78% and 79% respectively).  We will seek opportunities at all of our school sites to improve these areas in the coming year. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Below are the survey results for the entire District.
