Schools' Academic Performance Index score is based upon each school's aggregated performance on statewide standardized achievement tests.
This philosophy has proven relatively successful with Green Dot schools scoring higher than some comparable Los Angeles Unified School District schools on the 2006 Academic Performance Index (API).
On the achievement front, elementary school scores under California's Academic Performance Index increased more than 37 percent from 1999 to 2005, compared to overall statewide gains of 19 percent.
For example, teacher groups in California had previously voiced discomfort with the state's accountability program and Academic Performance Index for all schools.
On the state's Academic Performance Index, Edison was the lowest-ranked elementary school in San Francisco--just like the district-run school that the charter replaced.
Desert Trails ranks in the bottom third of California schools with similar demographics, with its achievement score at 699, out of a 1,000-point scale called the Academic Performance Index. The score fell by 13 points just this year.
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the size of high schools, their percentage of SED (socio-economic disadvantaged) students, and API (academic performance index) scores in California, and determine if teacher preparation is a contributing factor.
Regarding low-performing schools, Kirst argues, "It is less clear how a [low-performing] school can get itself out of the doghouse." No, it is very clear: such schools must meet the annual growth targets called for under the Academic Performance Index. In the first cohort of more than 400 low-performing schools, more than 100 failed to meet these growth targets and now are (rightfully, in my opinion) the target of possible restructuring.
California schools must improve every year by 5 percent of the difference between their academic performance index and the state's performance target of 800.
The invitation was limited to those schools that had posted the lowest math test scores based on California's Academic Performance Index.
They find that: (1) Schools with the highest percentage of students from low-income families exhibited the lowest performance on the California Academic Performance Index (API); (2) The highest-need schools, those serving the higher percentages of students identified as being socioeconomically disadvantaged and/or English language learners, generally spent somewhat more per pupil than the lowest-need schools; (3) Schools with the highest percentages of low-income students had relatively more FTE teachers per 100 students; (4) In terms of the qualifications of teachers, elementary and middle schools with the highest percentages of low-income students had somewhat more experienced teachers than other elementary and middle schools (the differences were about one year, on average).
