The Ed-Data website has just been updated with 2011-12 accountability data.

For the first time, a majority of California schools (53%) reached the state’s Academic Performance Index (API) goal of 800 this year. But the number of schools making AYP, the federal measure of K-12 academic progress, continues to decline mainly due to steep annual increases in targets under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.

Check out the school, district, and state-level reports on Ed-Data to find:

  • Whether a school or district met its API growth target.
  • Whether a school or district made AYP and, if not, in what measures it fell short.
  • Whether a school or district is in Program Improvement.
  • Statewide data by school type and student subgroup.


The Ed-Data website is managed by the Education Data Partnership, a collaboration of EdSource, the California Department of Education (CDE), and the Fiscal Crisis & Management Assistance Team. FCMAT’s California School Information Services (CSIS) hosts and maintains the Ed-Data website.

For more information:

The CDE’s press release provides a statewide summary of the 2011-12 accountability reports.
