On Friday, we emailed all families with an update about the state's new school accountability website, the California School Dashboard. The tool, launched earlier this month, is designed to provide multiple measures of school success, and replaces the more narrowly-defined Academic Performance Index (API) which was suspended three years ago.
The School Dashboard shows significant academic growth from GGUSD students. We received the second highest growth rating - a green color-coded ranking, in four key areas - English Language Arts, graduation rates, Math, and suspension rates.
The California School Dashboard is still a work in progress. However, we are committed to keeping parents informed about the tool and what it means for GGUSD schools.
