Each year, the California Department of Education releases the Academic Performance Index (API) scores for all schools in the state.
We are delighted to announce that Don Callejon School's API score increased 7 points in this year, from 861 in 2012 to 868 in 2013. This represents the school's sixth consecutive year of API growth!
This outstanding accomplishment is a testament to the hard work of our teachers, staff, and students, as well as the strong support of parents and the Don Callejon community. Although it becomes more difficult to achieve large annual improvements as the score increases, we are committed to working together to continue to achieve impressive results.
California’s Public Schools Accountability Act of 1999 established the Academic Performance Index (API). The API measures the performance and growth of schools and districts based on the test scores of students in grades 2 through 12. The API is a number on a scale of 200 to 1,000 that indicates how well students in a school or district performed on the previous spring’s tests. The statewide API performance target for all schools is 800. Though we have exceeded this expectation, we still hope to continue to improve our score.
