In order to meet federal requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), a 2011 Growth API is posted even if a school or LEA had no 2010 Base API or if a school had significant population changes from 2010 to 2011. However, the presentation of growth targets and actual growth would not be appropriate and, therefore, are omitted.
 
"N/A" means a number is not applicable or not available due to missing data.
"*" means this API is calculated for a small school, defined as having between 11 and 99 valid Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program test scores included in the API. The API is asterisked if the school was small in either 2010 or 2011. APIs based on small numbers of students are less reliable and, therefore, should be carefully interpreted.
"A" means the school or subgroups scored at or above the statewide performance target of 800 in 2010.
"B" means the school did not have a valid 2010 Base API  and will not have any growth or target information.
"C" means the school had significant demographic changes and will not have any growth or target information.
"D" means this is either an LEA, or a special education school. Target information is not applicable to LEAs or special education schools.
   
 
Targets Met - In the "Met Growth Target" columns, the growth targets reflect state accountability requirements and do not match the federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) requirements. The AYP requirement for the API is a 2011 Growth API of 710 or a one-point increase from the 2010 Base API to 2011 Growth API for a school or LEA.


Missing All Subgroup Data – All subgroup data are missing if the LEA informed the CDE of a potential data error in at least one race or ethnicity category.


Missing Special Population Subgroup Data – Socioeconomically Disadvantaged, English Learners, and Students with Disabilities groups with missing API data and a “No” under the “Met Subgroup Growth Target” column indicates that there was a decrease in the number of students in the group by at least 20 percent from the 2010 Base API to the 2011 Growth API, or the LEA reported a potential data error with one or more these student groups. For that reason API information for that student group is not reported. LEAs that make changes to their data through the testing contractor will have updated API reports released in February 2012.
