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:
Esperanza Elementary School’s Student Support Team's efforts resulted in more than 93 percent of students completing career assessments, learning about occupations, and making the connection between educational attainment, career possibilities, and lifestyle choices. The Student Support Team uses the California Career Zone—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!
SPARC also gives Student Support Teams a conduit for sharing program and contact information with other schools' Student Support Teams.
