The school's proportion of students excused at parent request compared to its Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program enrollment on the first day of testing is equal to or greater than 15 percent. Therefore, a 2000 API will not be reported for this school.

The State Board of Education adopted regulations to this effect on January 11, 2001 (Section 1032 (d)(4) of Article 1.7 to Subchapter 4, Chapter 2, Division 1 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations).


This school (or the district on behalf of the school) has certified to the California Department of Education that an irregularity in testing procedure occurred during the Spring 2000 Stanford 9 testing. Therefore, a 2000 API will not be reported for this school.


The district superintendent (or principal, if an independent charter school) has certified that the scores obtained on the 2000 administration of the Stanford 9 do not reflect the performance of the students at the school.


For at least one Stanford 9 content area, this school failed to test a significant proportion of students who were not exempt from testing. Therefore, a 2000 API will not be reported for this school.


This school (or the district on behalf of the school) reported that it would correct 2000 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) demographic information through the testing contractor. The district has forwarded the corrections to the testing contractor in a timely manner. However, the information has not been corrected. The California Department of Education will post an API for this school when corrected data become available.


This school will not receive a 2000 API Base because it has unresolved discrepancies in its demographic data for the 2000 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR).
