The annual reports show how a school is performing. 

Guillermo Mayer is a staff attorney with Public Advocates. He says the Natomas Unified, River Delta and Twin Rivers districts are not fully complying with state law. 

“So these school districts in Sacramento County share that deficiency in not providing translations for the parents and they’re also missing key data in some of their reports.”

Trinette Marquis is with the Twin Rivers Unified School District. She says they’re making the corrections. 

“We expect our students to meet our deadlines and we should have done the same. I’m happy to report that all of our SARCs are now up on the internet and the translations are underway.” 

Under California law, SARCs must be translated when more than 15% of a school’s student population speaks a primary language other than English.
