The Academic Performance Index (API) is an annual measure of test score conducted by the California Department of Education (CDE).
The latest results were released today and a summary is pictured above.
The API is a single number on a scale of 200 to 1,000 that indicates how well students in a school or district performed on the previous spring’s tests.
It is calculated using results of the STAR (Standardized Testing and Reporting) program and the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE).
The State Board of Education sets the statewide API target at 800 out of a possible 1,000.
Eight of the district's 12 schools had rising APIs. Four dropped. The District as a whole experienced a slight rise from 737 last year to 743 this year.
Read your school's performance off the chart above.
You can find a great deal more information about the district, your school or any other school or district in California at the API reports website.
Numbers don't tell the whole story but what do these test results -- and your other experiences -- tell you about San Leandro's schools?
