Carlsbad Unified School District Dashboard Is Rolled Out


California’s new school accountability website, the California School Dashboard, goes live this week. The Dashboard is designed to help parents and community members access important information about K-12 districts and schools. It features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success including test scores, graduation rates, English Learner progress, and suspension rates.


This website is part of California’s new school accountability system based on the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is the next 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.


Carlsbad Unified is launching our own website complete with an infographic. The website includes helpful links and videos regarding the Dashboard, individual school dashboards, and district and State communications regarding the release.


“Carlsbad Unified is committed to transparency and continuous improvement,” said Carlsbad Unified’s Superintendent Ben Churchill. “Our new website will provide clear and useful information to teachers, parents and the community about what we’re doing well, and how we can do better.”


Dr. Rob Nye, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, said, “School accountability systems have typically relied solely 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.”
