1. 1. <ul><li>Alana M. Cumpston </li></ul>Jack Franscioni Elementary School Academic Success is Non-negotiable
2. 2. What is API? <ul><li>Academic Performance Index or API is a score ranging from a low of 200 to a high of 1,000 that tells how well your students did on the state standardized test. </li></ul><ul><li>The state has set a goal of 800 points for each school. A school's growth is then compared to how well they are meeting or moving towards that goal. </li></ul><ul><li>Your schools API score is calculated for all students in a school as well as “numerically significant subgroups” at the school (such as by Ethnicity, English Learners, students with disabilities, and socioeconomically disadvantaged students) </li></ul><ul><li>API scores for schools that are of similar makeup are ranked into &quot;deciles,&quot; with a rank of “1” being the lowest-performing 10% of schools and ” 10” the highest-performing 10%. </li></ul><ul><li>Schools have two rankings: one a statewide ranking that compares each school with others of its type, and the second a “Similar Schools” ranking that compares ones school with 100 others that have similar student backgrounds and characteristics. </li></ul>
3. 3. Calculating A Schools API <ul><li>API gives a scale score of anywhere between 200 and 1,000 with a schools goal being 800. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, the students scores are divide the five performance bands: Advanced, Proficient, Basic, Below Basic, and Far Below Basic. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, weights are applied to the percent of students with scores in each performance band (least weight for the lowest bands). These are added to give a value for the subject. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, each subject area and test is given a weight within the index. The weight vary by grade level. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore a school’s base API scores varies school by school, depending on number of students in the various grade levels and the number of students tested. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, these scores are added together to get one score for your school which is then your API. </li></ul>
4. 4. What if you do not meet API? <ul><li>If a school doesn't meet its API target, it's put on a list of low-performing schools </li></ul><ul><li>It is then eligible to receive grants and special assistance to help to improve schools scores. </li></ul><ul><li>If a school API repeatedly does not meet target scores that your school may by subjected to state sanctions such as in the School Turn Around Model where school districts have to choose between four different routes including closing the school, letting go of at least half its staff, and/or extending the school day. </li></ul><ul><li>The most important is that the API is one of the main factors in deciding your schools AYP which determines whether your school is put in Program Improvement </li></ul>
