Note: Data are reported only for numerically significant subgroups. Subgroups meeting the following criteria are considered numerically significant: the group (1) contains at least 100 students with valid Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program test scores included in the API OR (2) comprises at least 15 percent of the total valid STAR Program scores and contains at least 50 students with valid STAR Program scores.
 
"N/A"  means a number is not applicable or not available due to missing data.
" * "  means this API is calculated for a small school or a small LEA, defined as having between 11 and 99 valid STAR Program test scores included in the API. APIs based on small numbers of students are less reliable and therefore should be carefully interpreted. Similar schools ranks are not calculated for small schools.
"A"  means the school or subgroup scored at or above the statewide performance target of 800 in 2008.
"B"  means this is either an LEA or an Alternative Schools Accountability Model (ASAM) school. Schools participating in the ASAM do not currently receive growth, target information, or statewide or similar schools rankings on this report in recognition of their markedly different educational missions and populations served. ASAM schools are covered under the Alternative Accountability system as required by Education Code Section 52052 and not the API accountability system. However, API information is needed to comply with the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law. Growth, target and rank information are not applicable to LEAs.
"C" means this is a special education school. Statewide and similar schools ranks are not applicable to special education schools.
"I"  means the school has some invalid data, and the California Department of Education cannot calculate a valid similar schools rank for this school.
