Accountability & Quality Schools

Castro Valley Unified School District is committed to ensuring that ALL of our students achieve at the highest possible levels.  Our district and site efforts and successes are rated and reported through the California Accountability Model and School Dashboard. Through our district Local Control Accountability Plan, we work with our community to set goals for student learning, aligning our actions, services, and budgets to support ALL of our students’ needs, and focusing on their overall and individual academic, social, emotional and behavioral health. Through our sites’ Single Plans for Student Achievement, our school sites identify goals, priorities, and programs to support student achievement. Through our School Accountability Report Cards, all areas of staffing, facilities, achievement, and budgets are reported.

California Accountability Model and School Dashboard

California Department of Education has a system for evaluating schools and districts that includes multiple measures of student success. The California School Dashboard ( includes graphic representations of Literacy and Math test scores, high school graduation rates, English learner progress rates, and suspension rates for all students and for student subgroups. The Dashboard will soon also include additional rates for students’ college and career readiness and attendance.



Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Castro Valley’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) details our four major goals for our students and lists specific actions, services and budgets to support those goals.  Click here for the one page LCAP Goal overview. 

  • Goal 1: Ensure that ALL students graduate “college and career ready” through the full implementation of the New California Standards for Literacy and Mathematics and the Next Generation Science Standards.
  • Goal 2: Ensure a positive learning environment with properly certificated teachers, adequate materials, and appropriate facilities to support high-quality teaching and student learning.
  • Goal 3: Empower ALL parents (including those speaking a language other than English) to be actively engaged in their students’ education and decision-making processes by providing timely information and encouraging parents to demonstrate their support for student learning and for the importance of graduating “college and career ready.”
  • Goal 4: Ensure that ALL students are actively engaged and supported through a safe, healthy, culturally responsive, and rigorous learning environment.

School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)

California public & nonpublic, nonsectarian schools annually provide information to the community to allow public comparison of schools for student achievement, environment, resources & demographics.


Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSAs)

The Single Plans for Student Achievement are written by each school to detail the goals of the school that are in line with the District’s LCAP goals. SPSAs include specific actions, services, and budgets the sites have set, in conjunction with their community, to meet the needs of their students and to close the opportunity gap for individual students and student subgroups.

Comprehensive Safety Plans
