(Macintosh, PC, iPad)
How much is your school improving from year to year based on your (API) academic performance index?
The annual API growth target for a school is 5 percent of the difference between the school’s API and the statewide performance target of 800.Schools that meet or exceed an 800 API are expected to maintain that level of achievement and to continue working to improve the academic performance of all students.
What will it take for your school to become a state distinguished school?
If a school meets certain API participation and growth criteria, it may be eligible to become a CaliforniaDistinguishedSchool or a NationalBlueRibbonSchool.If a school does not meet or exceed its growth targets and is ranked in the lower part of the statewide distribution of the Base API, it may be identified to participate in state intervention programs.These programs are designed to help the school improve its academic performance.
What is an AYP Report?
The AYP Report was made a federal requirement by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.This report shows how well schools and school districts are meeting common standards of academic performance, as measured by whether the school of school district makes AYP.
What is a PI Report?
The PI (Program Improvement) Report supplements the AYP Report by providing information on the PI Status of schools and school districts.A school or school district that receives federal Title I funds is subject to identification for PI if it does not make AYP for two years in a row.
