California School Dashboard Update

The Department of Education has released the Beaumont Unified School District’s 2017-18 school year data on the California School Dashboard, which reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, college/career readiness, chronic absenteeism, and suspension rates.

 

The District is very proud of our student achievement and continued success in college and career readiness. For more information, specific to the Beaumont Unified School District and to your school site, please visit  https://caschooldashboard.org

 

What is the California Dashboard?

The California School Dashboard (watch video) is part of California’s new school accountability system based on the Local Control Funding Formula implemented in 2013. The dashboard is a step in a series of major shifts in public education that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing and placed the focus on equity for all students.

 

What’s different?

In the past, accountability systems for districts and schools relied heavily on test scores. But one test taken on one particular day doesn’t provide a complete picture of all the ways schools are helping students succeed. The Dashboard provides information on different aspects of student performance, which will give a more complete picture of a school’s progress. The Dashboard also reports on growth to show a school’s trajectory over time.

 

The District and our schools will have access to state support and opportunities to work with education leaders on new and better ways to improve teaching and learning. While we are making progress in many key areas there is always more work to do. Meeting goals will take a united effort, and we look forward to working with our families to ensure success for every student.
