Support Personnel Accountability Report Card

The SPARC is an annual, voluntary, continuous improvement process where schools create a short, easy-to-read report identifying key career and college readiness student outcomes achieved through Student Support Team contributions and collaborative work.

Schools use SPARC to show school boards, community partners, parents, and other stakeholders the success of their Student Support System.

Examples of Student Support Team student outcome successes:

  • At Monterey Trail High School, guidance lessons have students identify their values, skills, interests, and potential occupations then develop viable postsecondary plans. One hundred percent of Monterey’s students graduated high school with a plan in hand, ready to take their next steps.

  • Richmond High School requires every student, with a few exceptions, to complete a Career Technical Education pathway. This strategy helped Richmond reach a 98 percent graduation rate!

  • Anaverde Hills K–8 Elementary School has a 100 percent promotion rate!

  • Blair Middle and High School’s seniors provided over 2,000 work-based learning hours to their local community!

  • Esperanza Elementary School Student Support Team's efforts resulted in more than 93 percent of students completing career assessments, learning about occupations, and making connections between educational attainment, career possibilities, and lifestyle choices. The Student Support Team uses the California CareerZone—a free career and college exploration and planning tool. 

  • Hillview Middle School's partners, like the Lancaster West Rotary and the WAVE Foundation, financially support their career and college readiness projects and programs!

  • Joe Walker Middle School STEALTH Academy received a California School Boards Association Golden Bell Award in Technology!
