The new California Academic Performance Index (API) scores are out.  These are the cornerstone of California’s Public Schools Accountability Act of 1999.  They measure the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of academic measures.

One thought on “The SAUSD’s 2011 API scores released – how did your school measure up?”
  1. CARR Intermediate has been at a flat line for the past 4-5 years in terms of API Scores…Way to go Mr. Patrick! Let’s see how he performs at Valley H.S….remember it’s ego vs. Ability, Mr. Patrick. You should have hired new staff rather than bringing your loyalists from CARR to Valley.
