Mission of Accountability & Assessment:

The local, state, and federal assessment and accountability programs are our core work, our mission is to improve academic outcomes for all of Pomona's students. We accomplish this by enabling principals and teachers to use evaluative and support tools, data, and research to accelerate learning.

The Department of Accountability & Assessment coordinates and implements local and state testing programs and provides professional guidance in the reporting and use of student achievement information to improve Pomona's schools.
