An update on Academic Performance Index scores tops the staff reports when Vacaville Unified leaders meet tonight.
Widely regarded as a “report card on schools,” the results were announced Oct. 11 at the state Department of Education in Sacramento. API is a numeric index that ranges from 200 to 1,000. It combines annual Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) results with those from the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE).
Mark Frazier, the district’s chief academic officer, will deliver the report to the seven-member board, detailing an overall picture of the scores, then breaking them down by schools and subgroups.
In 2012, growth districtwide was up 10 points, from 776 to 786, with scores from some 9,200 students taken into account.
