Dashboard: Explore how your schools are performing academically

California School Dashboard logo The California School Dashboard, which allows families and community members to look up detailed and multiple measures of school and district performance, has been released for 2019. 

The Dashboard evaluates schools and districts holistically.  The Dashboard gives parents and caregivers a fuller picture of student performance by displaying data on graduation rates, suspension rates, school attendance rates, college/career readiness rates, English learner progress and test scores. It also includes local information about school climate and conditions, parent engagement and basic services. All of these factors are interrelated and contribute to school success.

The Dashboard puts equity issues up front and center. The Dashboard breaks down information by student group (low-income, English learner, foster youth, etc.) to help local communities see gaps and align resources to support struggling students.

Every school and district can improve. To do so, local communities need to know what they’re doing right and where there are issues to address. Look up your school at caschooldashboard.org

What’s new this year: 

  • Smart phone and tablet users can access the 2019 Dashboard via a free mobile app available from the iOS App Store, the Microsoft Store and Google Play. Or download it here.
  • CDE has also launched the California School Dashboard Navigator, an interactive map of Dashboard performance by district and school to make important data more transparent and accessible to parents/caregivers and community members.
