New School Dashboard Reports School Performance

The State of California is field-testing a new school accountability tool that uses multiple measures to report school performance and growth.

 Watch the Video

The California School Dashboard is a new tool from the State of California that replaces the old Academic Performance Index (API).  It will provide parents, educators, and the public with important information they can use to evaluate schools and school districts in an easy-to-understand report card format.

The California School Dashboard is a critical piece of California’s new school accountability and continuous improvement system. A 5-minute video explains how the new tool works and what it looks like.

Planning for Excellence

Strategic Plan Committee noted progress during its review of strategic goals and objectives, including STEAM, standards and student support.

The Strategic Planning Committee—35 students, employees, parents, community members, and Board members—met on March 7, 2017 to discuss progress, challenges, and next steps toward achieving the District’s strategic goals.

As part of the semi-annual review, the group created objectives to be completed by September 2018 and a list of current “Perceived Strengths and Accomplishments”.

More details about the Strategic Plan are on the Strategic Plan Web Page
