SARC: School Accountability Report Card

A School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is required by the California Department of Education to be published by February of each year for the most recently completed school year for each school in the district. The profile provides information about the school and its students including demographic data, school safety information, academic achievement data, school completion rates, class sizes, teacher and staff information, curriculum and instruction information, postsecondary preparation information, and fiscal and expenditure data.

The 2021-2022 SARC was approved by the Board of Trustees on January 31, 2023.

The California Department of Education (CDE) will be releasing ''Teacher'' data in late February and the documents will be updated accordingly at that time.

ESSER III Expenditure Plan

The Grenada Elementary School District (Local Education Agency-LEA) has received Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds under the American Rescue Plan Act, referred to as ESSER III funds. The District was required to develop a plan for how they will use their ESSER III funds. In the plan we were asked to explain how we intend to use these  ESSER III funds to address students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs, as well as any opportunity gaps that existed before, and were worsened by, the COVID-19 pandemic. In developing the plan, the District had flexibility to include community input and/or actions included in other planning documents, such as the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), provided that the input and actions are relevant to the LEA’s Plan to support students.

For the 2020-21 school year school districts must work with parents, educators, students, and the community to develop a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan). The Learning Continuity Plan replaces the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) for the 2020–21 school year and provides school districts with the opportunity to describe how they are planning to provide a high-quality education, social-emotional supports, and nutrition to their students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

LCAP: Local Control and Accountability Plan

In 2014, the California State Legislature created the singular Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) to replace most “categorical ” funding streams for special programs and/or subgroups in California. The intent of this change was to allow school districts more flexibility in resource allocation to address locally-identified student needs.

In line with this, the state also prompted districts to write a plan (the Local Control Accountability Plan [LCAP]) that was intended to explain how expenditures were to be utilized to meet these identified student needs. Furthermore, the plan was expected to be shared and input solicited from all significant stakeholder groups across the district.  

The plan was designed to address planned improvements in both overall student achievement and district subgroup achievement gaps by focusing on equity for our neediest students:

  1. Low Income Pupils

  2. English Learners

  3. Foster Youth (FY)

  4. Reclassified Fluent English-Proficient (RFEP)

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures that are enacted across the schools in the San Mateo Union High School District to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities.

The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. The plan describes the school district’s key goals for students as well as the specific actions (with expenditures) the district will take to achieve the goals and the means (metrics) used to measure progress. The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California’s eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement.

GESD Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan

View the GESD Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan.  This version was approved by the GES Board of Trustees on 9/25/20.  Any subsequent revisions or updates will be posted on this page.


Senate Bill 98, approved by Governor Newsom on 6.29.20, made several key changes to accountability requirements for 2020-21.  These include the establishment of a new requirement – The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan. 

The contents of GESD’s Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan are aligned to the information in the district’s Opening Plan for Fall 2020.   

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan memorializes the ongoing planning process for the 2020-21 school year.  It includes some items that are pending, still in development, and/or being discussed in negotiations with bargaining groups.  The plan includes descriptions of how the district is doing the following:

  • Addressing gaps in learning

  • Conducting meaningful stakeholder engagement

  • Maintaining transparency;

  • Addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, and students experiencing homelessness

  • Providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning

  • Providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social emotional well-being

  • Continuing to provide school meals for students

Safety Plan Information


In the case of an emergency at our schools, we ask that you please remember to look for official information from the school or district. We deliver messages via school and district websites, text, and district social media account - Facebook. Please ensure that your child’s school has your most current contact information on file. Call the Main Office to  update contact information.

Dear Parents:

Providing for your student’s safety when at school is a major responsibility of our staff.  All schools and child development centers have a disaster plan.  The principal and staff are prepared to make prompt and responsible decisions in any situation that could threaten the safety of the students.

The need to lockdown or shelter-in-place, evacuate students or close school before the regularly scheduled closing time could arise from a relatively minor emergency such as a prolonged interruption of power or from a major event such as a violent incident on campus, an earthquake, or severe storm.  During these times, communication and/or transportation may be disrupted.

In the event of a major emergency or disaster, information will be given primarily through our phone notification system - REMIND, as well as local radio stations and the GES Facebook page.

District Release Policy

  • No student will be dismissed from school unless a parent (or individual designated by a parent) comes for him/her.

  • No student will be released to another person, even a relative or baby sitter, unless there is written permission to that effect or that particular person is listed on the student’s Emergency Card in our files and is able to identify him/herself.  If any of your contact information changes during the year, please visit the office to update the Emergency Card.

  • All parents or designated persons who come for students must sign their student(s) out at the office, unless directed elsewhere on campus by posted signs.

Please be assured, we are prepared to care for your student in emergency situations.  Members of our staff are trained in the areas of first aid, search and locate, and student safety to ensure that all your student needs will be met.  We will communicate with local emergency services.  They will be apprised of our current status and the need for additional resources.

We ask for your help in the following ways:

  • Do not call the school.  We will contact you, if necessary.  It is essential that telephone lines be kept open for emergency calls.  Turn to the above radio stations for more information.  

  • Do not drive to the school.  The school access routes and street entrances must remain clear for emergency vehicles.  We will notify you through our Teleparent phone notification system when safe access is recommended.

During the school year your child will be trained in the necessary emergency procedures.  Each will learn how to react, where to assemble, and what to expect in an emergency situation.

We suggest that you meet with your immediate family and develop an emergency plan.   There are several free publications available to assist you.   Please call the local chapter of the American Red Cross at 732-6436 or visit them online at  More information can be found at 

If you have any questions or comments regarding our emergency preparations, please call the school office.

Posted by March 1st of each school year.




Student Emergency Tips

  • Take all emergency drills seriously

  • Follow law enforcement, teacher and site administrator instructions

  • If you see something, say something - Don't spread it- report it! This is the best deterrent to potentially harmful situations. We want everyone on our campus, including parents and guardians to be empowered to report any unusual or suspicious activity. 

Parent/Guardian Emergency Tips

  • REMAIN CALM! Employees at each of our campuses regularly train in emergency procedures in numerous scenarios. They will do everything possible to keep your child safe.

  • DON’T CALL THE SCHOOL. The phone lines need to be kept open for emergency calls and staff may not be available to answer calls. The first priority during an emergency is to keep students and employees safe. Communication will be sent to parents/guardians as soon as possible. (See section below for emergency communications information)

  • DON’T IMMEDIATELY DRIVE TO THE SCHOOL. Additional presence on campus could impede the ability of emergency and law enforcement vehicles to access the school. Please wait for specific instructions from the school or district. Depending on the situations the reunification may be at an alternative location.

  • YOUR CHILD WILL ONLY BE RELEASED TO ADULTS LISTED ON THEIR EMERGENCY CONTACT LIST! Please ensure that your child's school has the most recent contact information on file - Update Contact Information. At the conclusion of an emergency, be sure to bring your identification to the reunification area in order for your student to be released to you.

Visitor Policy

All visitors to schools must report to the front office, state reason for their visit and receive a visitor badge prior to entering classrooms or school grounds.

See Something, Say Something

If you see something, say something - Don't spread it- report it!  This is the best deterrent to potentially harmful situations. We want everyone on our campus, including parents, guardians and guests to be empowered to report any unusual or suspicious activity to a site administrator, employee or police.

Comprehensive School Safety Plans and COVID-19 Safety Plan

A Covid Safety Plan (CSP) combines state-level guidance published in the California State Resilience Road map and local Siskiyou County public health policies. The State of California requires all businesses (including schools) to:

  • Perform a detailed Risk Assessment (school site walk-through and implement a school SSPP)

  • Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them

  • Implement individual control measures and screenings

  • Implement disinfecting protocols

  • Implement physical distancing guidelines.

The following SSPPs are now part of each school's Comprehensive School Safety Plan.  As the COVID-19 public health crisis continues to evolve and new Public Health Orders are issued both at the State and local levels, amendments to individual schools' CSPs may be needed in order to incorporate new requirements.  The GES COVID-19 Point-of-Contact is Superintendent/Principal GingerLee Charles, who will post and disseminate updated information.

In accordance with Education Code 32280-32288 and GESD Board Policy and Administrative Regulations 0450(a)(b), Comprehensive School Safety Plans (CSSPs) are updated annually by March 1st.

NOTE: Some components of the CSSPs may include proprietary or confidential information that shall not be released to the general public including personal contact information for students or staff members, tactical response procedures or strategies, building infrastructure or asset information, sensitive emergency contact information, detailed security procedures for campus crisis response and campus vulnerability assessment information.

Copies of the CSSPs are kept on file at the school site and on a secure server. School staff and responders have access to the Plan through hardcopy and electronic formats.

No portion of the Plan may be copied, redistributed or made available, in hard copy, digital format or otherwise, without the expressed written consent of the District, and in compliance with any copyright laws that may apply to the materials contained within.
