Killybrooke Students Begin Ranch Program
Way to go, Killybrooke Students! API Score Increases by 3 Points to 863!
KILLYBROOKE MAINTAINS EXCELLENCE
IN ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE SCORES
GROWTH OF 3 POINTS ON THE STATE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE INDEX (API)
WAY TO GO, KILLYBROOKE!
In August, we received the results of our 2013 California Standards Tests (CSTs). All Killybrooke students in grades two through six took the tests in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Fifth grade students were also tested in Science. These scores are used to calculate our school’s Academic Performance Index (API) score, which was released on August 29, 2013.
The state has established a target of 800 on the API for all schools. Killybrooke’s API score is 863 this year (a growth of 3 points), demonstrating continued excellence in academic performance. We will soon receive a ranking score from the state to rank how we scored in comparison with schools with similar student demographics (including ethnicity, English Learner status, special education status, socioeconomic status). Historically, we have ranked a 9 or 10 out of a possible 10 points when compared with similar schools.
The majority of our students are scoring Proficient and/or Advanced in these core content areas. We encourage every parent to take a moment to analyze your child’s scores (on the report that was mailed to your home in August). Your child’s teacher for the 2013-2014 school year has analyzed your child’s scores and has used them to plan for next steps in instruction to challenge your child to continue to learn and achieve.
If you have any questions about your child’s scores or our school’s scores, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or Dr. Hoggard. We would love to dialogue with you about your student’s results and how we use them to plan for next steps in instruction as your child moves through the grades.
