Academic Performance Index Scores Released


For possibly the final time, Academic Performance Index scores were released for K-12 schools. Overall, numbers dipped slightly for all South Coast districts save for Carpinteria Unified, which saw a rise from 791 to 808, 800 being the threshold of proficiency on a scale that tops out at 1,000. The Open Alternative School saw a notable jump of 40 points from 771 to 811. Franklin Elementary School continued a five-year surge with a 27-point jump this year. Adelante Charter School also increased its score by 27 points. The API, however, is based on standardized tests that will be scrapped with the implementation of the new Common Core State Standards.
