In order to meet federal requirements of No Child Left Behind, a 2010 Growth API is posted even if a school or LEA had no 2009 Base API or if a school had significant population changes from 2009 to 2010. 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 either in 2009 or 2010. 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 2009.
"B" means the school did not have a valid 2009 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, an Alternative Schools Accountability Model (ASAM) school, or a special education school. Target information is not applicable to LEAs, ASAM schools, or special education schools.
"E" indicates this school was an ASAM school in the 2009 Base API Report and has no target information even though the school is no longer an ASAM school.
 
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 2010 Growth API of 680 or a one-point increase from 2009  Base API to 2010 Growth API for a school or LEA.
