State API Results Released: SRVUSD sees 5 point increase


State API Results Released: SRVUSD sees 5 point increase
District scores best of any large unified school district in the state

San Ramon Valley schools once again showed improvement in the 2012 Academic Performance Index Growth Report according to data released Thursday by the California Department of Education, with all scores averaging well above the state target. The API measures and compares the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of academic measures.

The overall 2012 API growth score for the district was 927, up 5 points from the 2011 API Base score of 922. It marks a two-year growth of 11 points. The state goal for all schools is 800 on the API. These results continue to place SRVUSD as the 8thhighest unified school district in the state and the highest among unified districts with more than 9,000 students tested.

The 2012 Growth API measures the amount of growth a school or district makes since the release of the previous Base API. Twin Creeks, Montevideo and Walt Disney Elementary Schools showed the most growth at the elementary level - 23, 20 and 19 points respectively over the previous year. At the middle school level, Windemere Ranch increased by 13 points. Dougherty Valley High School showed an increase of 15 points. The district’s comprehensive high schools are in the top 4% of all high schools statewide. 

In addition, scores for several specific subgroups in the district also improved. Results for the district’s African American subgroup (with an API of 824) were up 6 points. SRVUSD students classified as “English Learners” (as a group) ranked first among all unified districts in the state with an API of 920.

 “It is amazing that a high achieving district like ours can continue to improve,” said Superintendent Mary Shelton. “While I am pleased to see that many of our subgroups improved again, a few did not, and we will continue to make that a primary focus in our classrooms.”

Statewide, fifty-three percent of all California schools are now at or above the overall statewide target API of 800.

The API is the cornerstone of the state’s academic accountability requirements. The API is a numerical index (or scale) ranging from a low score of 200 to a high score of 1000. It reflects a school’s or district’s academic performance based on annual results of statewide testing at grades two through eleven. Each year, schools receive two API reports, the API Base (reported in March) and the API Growth (reported in September).
