Growth API target information is not applicable to LEAs, special education schools, or schools that do not have a valid 2011 Base API.


Click on the column header to view notes.  
 
In order to meet federal requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), a 2012 Growth API is posted even if a school or LEA had no 2011 Base API or if a school had significant population changes from 2011 to 2012. However, the presentation of actual growth would not be appropriate and, therefore, is 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 2011 or 2012. APIs based on small numbers of students are less reliable and, therefore, should be carefully interpreted.
"B" means the school did not have a valid 2011 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.


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 and English Learners students 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 2011 Base API to the 2012 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 January 2013.


The AYP requirement for the API is a 2012 Growth API of 740, or a one-point increase from the 2011 Base API to the 2012 Growth API for a school or LEA.
