NONDISCRIMINATION STATEMENT

The Mariposa County Unified School District is committed to providing a safe school environment where all individuals in education are afforded equal access and opportunities. The District’s academic and other educational support programs, services and activities shall be free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any individual based on the person’s actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. Specifically, state law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in enrollment, counseling, and the availability of physical education, athletic activities, and sports. Transgender students shall be permitted to participate in gender-segregated school programs and activities (e.g., athletic teams, sports competitions, and field trips) and to use facilities consistent with their gender identity. The District assures that lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation in District programs. Complaints of unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying are investigated through the Uniform Complaint Process. Such complaints must be filed no later than six months after knowledge of the alleged discrimination was first obtained. For a complaint form or additional information, contact the Director of Human Resources & Student Services (Discrimination/Equity and Title IX Coordinator) at (209) 742-0250. The address is: P.O. Box 8 / 5082 Old Highway North in Mariposa, CA.

SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARD (SARC)

California requires that each school publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC) every year. The SARC provides parents and community members with easy access to a wide range of information about the school.  Click on the link to the left to view our SARC.

Academic Performance Index (API)

The Academic Performance Index (API) is California’s tool for accountability. The API is a score between 200 and 1000, with an API of 800 being the goal. The test scores from all grade levels and all content areas are put into a formula to generate the API.

Schools have growth targets each year for the whole school and for numerically significant subgroups based on ethnicity, special programs (English Learners and Special Education), and economic status. Districts receive an API, but not growth targets.
