Adequate Yearly Progress - 2013
Alameda County Community
(CDS code 01-10017-0130419)


This school, designated as a high school for AYP reporting, has not met all requirements for 2013 Adequate Yearly Progress as determined by the California Department of Education. Details of the school's performance are in the tables below.

These results are from the 2013 Accountability Progress Report (APR), released by the California Department of Education in August 2013. Click here for more information about APR.

The CDE has 16 alternative methods for determining if schools made AYP. These apply to schools for which AYP indicators cannot be calculated in the standard way or whose circumstances meet allowable exceptions. Examples are alternative schools and very small schools. Some schools made AYP because of these alternative calculations, but the original data is reported in the tables below.

Not all AMOs met.

Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), schools must make "adequate yearly progress" (AYP) in several areas, based primarily on student performance and participation.
  • Performance: Each year the percent of students in each subgroup scoring "proficient" or above in English/language arts and mathematics on standardized tests must meet or exceed target percentages known as "annual measurable objectives" (AMOs) that increased substantially for 2013.
     
  • Participation: The percent of students in each subgroup taking the tests must meet or exceed 95%.
     
  • Additional indicators for AYP include scoring at certain levels on the Academic Performance Index (API) and, high school students, improving their graduation rates.

Note: California is overhauling its student testing and school accountability systems. To learn more, see Changes to California's K-12 Education System.

 

Performance - Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs)
2013 Schoolwide English/Language Arts Percent Proficient or Above

Pop-trends
8.3% Proficiency levels are measured using the California Standards Tests for elementary and middle schools and the California High School Exit Exam for high schools. Target percentages are known as "annual measurable objectives" (AMOs).
    The AMOs for high schools increased substantially in 2013, to 88.9% in English/language arts and 88.7% in mathematics. Schools with fewer than 100 valid scores have adjusted AMOs and must meet adjusted percent proficient targets.
Each numerically significant subgroup of students must meet the AMOs in both subjects for the school to make Adequate Yearly Progress. The subgroups are based on ethnicity, disability, socioeconomically disadvantaged (free/reduced price meal program and/or parents without high school diplomas), and English language status.

A school can make AYP if the percent of students (whole school or subgroups) who are below proficient in ELA or math decreased by 10% from the previous year; in this "safe harbor" provision the school must have a 95% participation rate and an API Growth score of 680 or one point above the previous year.

Participation Rates
2013 Schoolwide English/Language Arts Participation Rate 77.0% The school as a whole and each numerically significant subgroup of students must have a 95% participation rate in both English/language arts and math in order to make Adequate Yearly Progress. The subgroups are based on ethnicity, disability, socioeconomically disadvantaged (free/reduced price meal program and/or parents without high school diplomas), and English language status.

Additional Indicator(s)
2013 Growth API * The school’s 2013 Growth Academic Performance Index (API) must be at least 770 or improve over the 2012 Base API by at least one point. An "Invalid" Growth API prevents the school from making AYP. An asterisk (*) indicates the school is exempt from the API requirement for AYP because it has fewer than 50 valid scores.

High schools, based on 2011-12 graduation rates, also must meet a graduation target by either:
  1. Having a four-year cohort graduation rate of at least 90.0%, or
  2. Meeting a 2013 fixed growth target rate, or
  3. Meeting a 2013 variable growth target rate.
Fixed and variable target graduation rates are calculated for schools that have not reached the 90% goal.

All student subgroups also must meet the above standards in order for the school to make the graduation rate target.

School placed in Program Improvement? Yes Because this school receives federal Title I funds, it will be placed in Program Improvement if it fails to make Adequate Yearly Progress on the same indicator for two years in a row.

Note2: AYP indicators are highlighted in red if they do not meet AYP target values. Some AYP indicator values that appear not to meet a standard actually do meet AYP standards due to an alternative method determination and will not be highlighted in red.
