District continues to excel in API tests

Schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District remained high in the Academic Performance Index Growth Report, according to a report released by the California Department of Education last week.

The overall district score was 894. The state goal for all schools was 800, which was met by only 31 percent of all schools in California, said district spokesman Terry Koehne. SRVUSD is the eighth highest in the state and the highest among unified districts with more than 20,000 students, Koehne added.

"We will use this data to help us understand how to continue to improve student performance across the entire district and narrow the achievement gap among ethnic subgroups and students with disabilities," said Superintendent Rob Kessler.

The API is a numerical scale ranging from a low score of 200 to a high score of 1,000. It reflects a school or district's academic performance based on annual results of statewide testing at grades 2 through 11. To view results, go to www.cde.ca.gov
