A Here we report facts about our teachers, including the number of years they’ve been teaching in the classroom, the types of credentials they hold, and the student-teacher ratio.

B Class sizes often vary across grade levels and courses. We report the average class sizes of each grade for elementary schools and of core courses (math, science, English, and social studies) for middle and high schools. Class sizes are usually smaller for kindergarten through third grade because of the state-funded class-size reduction program.

C To provide insight into our student population, we highlight facts about our students’ family income and education, as well as the number of English learners at our school. 

D The California Standards Tests are one way that we measure how well our students are learning. We present our schoolwide scores and compare them with the scores of all California schools at the same grade level.

E Public schools in California utilize two methods for measuring academic progress: the state’s Academic Performance Index and the federal Adequate Yearly Progress. We explain briefly how these two views of progress differ and how our school performs against each of them.

F We summarize the most important factors about the API and AYP in this part of the report.

G When a school fails to meet state or federal academic goals, it is placed on a "watch list" of underperforming schools. We call these schools to your attention here.
