sizes often vary across grade levels and courses. We report the

class-size reduction program.
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.
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.
summarize the most important factors about the API and AYP in
this part of the report.
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.
