California's New Accountability Dashboard

Educational accountability in California is changing, as the purpose moves beyond using test scores to identify and punish ineffective schools and districts, toward providing appropriate supports to increase effectiveness and build capacity.

California's new accountability and continuous improvement system will build on the foundations of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  Local, state, and federal accountability and planning will be integrated, using the multiple measures and metrics in the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), to produce a more unified system.
