The School Accountability Report Card (SARC) was established by Proposition 98, an initiative passed by California voters in 1998. This report card is issued annually by local school boards for each school in California. It provides parents and other interested community members with information on at least 17 aspects of the school, its resources, successes and the areas in which improvements are needed.

The School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is meant to consolidate all school-level planning efforts into one plan for programs funded through the consolidated application (ConApp), pursuant to the California Education Code (EC) Section 64001 and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
The purpose of the SPSA is to increase the overall effectiveness of the school program by crafting a strategic plan that maximizes the resources available to the school while minimizing duplication of effort with the ultimate goal of increasing student achievement.
Foothill was honored in 2006 with the recognition of being named a National Blue Ribbon School.
The national recognition program is run through the U.S. Department of Education as part of the No Child Left Behind act. Blue Ribbon Schools are either academically superior in their states or demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement. Foothill was honored for being academically superior.
Foothill has been fortunate and honored to be named a California Distinguished School in 1994, 2001, 2005 and 2019. The criteria for schools to be honored with this award is stringent, so Foothill is immensely proud of this achievement — four times over.
The California School Recognition Program was created in 1985 to identify and honor the state's exemplary and inspiring public schools with the California Distinguished School Award. Participation is voluntary since it requires a great deal of effort on the part of school staff and parents to complete the application process. Roughly five percent of California's schools are honored each year. The duration of a distinguished school honor is four years.
Foothill is proud that many of our graduates go on to attend four-year colleges and community colleges, enter the military or join the workforce. Here are the statistics for the latest year information was compiled.
