The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that school districts provide parents with an annual school status report at the beginning of each school year. Florida's School Public Accountability Reports (SPAR) have been generated to comply with federal legislation that requires annual report cards on the educational progress of schools, school districts, and the state.
The SPAR provides information for all schools regarding:
- Student enrollment
- Kindergarten readiness
- Graduation rates
- High school dropout rates
- Student performance in writing, reading, mathematics, and science
- Student performance on the National Assessment of Educational Progress
- Teacher demographic information
The SPAR for your school can be retrieved by requesting a copy directly from your school or you can access the SPAR online by visiting the website below:
Walton County School District (WCSD) has also provided a link to the SPAR on the school district’s website. In order to access the SPAR through WCSD:
- Visit www.walton.k12.fl.us.
