Program Improvement

ESEA (Elementary Secondary Education Act) requires the state and district to review annually the academic progress of federally funded Title I schools and to identify schools in need of improvement. These schools are identified as PI schools after two consecutive years of not making adequate yearly progress (AYP). California determines AYP by considering the following four measures:

1. The percentage of students scoring at the “proficient” or “advanced” level on the California Standards Tests for English-language arts and mathematics;

2. The percentage of students participating in those tests;

3. The graduation rate for high schools; and

4. California’s own accountability measurement of progress, the Academic Performance Index (API).
