Understanding the California School Dashboard

Does your school measure up? Find out using the California School Dashboard.

Hear from California State PTA leaders about this resource for families and schools. The California School Dashboard was released last fall and a new and improved Dashboard is on its way.

It’s mobile friendly, has new information and is translated into Spanish. The Dashboard is becoming the go-to place to find out how well your school and its students are doing, and where improvement is needed.

This brief webinar will show you how to access the Dashboard and how to use it to identify questions that need asking. We’ll also talk about how to get answers to those questions.

Join our webinar discussion on Wednesday, December 12 at 6 p.m.
