You’ve heard the good news, now see the results for yourself!
Yes, it’s true, LAUSD is getting lots of recognition for the DOUBLE DIGIT GAINS on the 2012 Academic Performance Index! Click here for more details in the press release. Superintendent John Deasy said, “The notable gain of 16 points indicates in spite of five years of brutal budget cuts, 10,000 layoffs, larger class sizes, and a shortened school year, teachers continue to focus on instruction, learning and our goals.”
In the 2012 APR Informative from the Office of Data and Accountability, Superintendent Deasy and the members of LAUSD Board of Education received the charts you see above as pictures. They indicate that our API grew by 16 points in 2012, the fifth consecutive year of double digit growth, exceeded the state average of 10 points, and was the highest among other urban districts in California for the second year in a row! Five schools had API gains of 65 points or more in a single year. The school with the highest gain (excluding small schools and options schools) was Burbank Middle School with 100 points, which also just had a ribbon cutting on a new redevelopment project yesterday!
