Report of Survey Results on the Inclusion of New Indicators in the High School API

The California Department of Education (CDE) is developing new indicators to include in the high school API. Regional meetings were conducted and an online API Survey sought input on new indicators from administrators, teachers, parents, guardians, students, school board members, educational organizations, community members, and business leaders. The results of the survey can be found in the Report of Survey Results on the Inclusion of New Indicators in the High School API (PDF).

To access current information on the developmental process and decisions made on including new indicators into the API, please select the Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) link within the "Related Sites" section at the bottom of this Web page.
