Click on the column header to view notes.
In order to meet federal requirements of No Child Left Behind, a 2007 Growth API is posted even if a school or LEA had no 2006 Base API. However, the presentation of actual growth would not be appropriate and, therefore, is omitted.
Direct-funded charter schools are not included in the LEA Report.
"N/A" means a number is not applicable or not available due to missing data.
"*" means this API is calculated for a small LEA, defined as having between 11 and 99 valid Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program test scores included in the API. APIs based on small numbers of students are less reliable and therefore should be carefully interpreted.
The federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) requirement for the API is: a 2007 Growth API of 590 OR a one-point increase from the 2006 Base API to the 2007 Growth API for a school or LEA.
