On Dec. 6, 2018, the California Department of Education updated the official California School Dashboard with the latest data for schools and districts. The dashboard shows progress, or lack of it, on multiple measures. This database shows measures of achievement on six measures, in color codes selected by the state. To find indicators from a school or district, enter a search term in the box to search by school, city, district or county. If a school or district does not appear, it means that no data is available. Detailed test scores are available on cells with an “i” (click to see more). For a full explanation, see the notes below the chart.

Notes to Database

Color Codes and Ratings:  The dashboard includes five performance levels that are color-coded, based on a combination of current performance level and change over the previous year. The color spectrum ranges from red to orange to yellow to green to blue, with red signifying the lowest performance level and blue the highest.

A color rating for English Learner Progress Indicator is not available this year since the state switched to a new test to measure English learners’ progress in English proficiency. The color rating will return in 2020.

More information about how the performance levels were calculated is available at the California Department of Education’s website here.
