This school (or the district on behalf of the school) reported to the California Department of Education that an irregularity in testing procedure occurred during the Spring 2000 Stanford 9 testing. The Department is currently reviewing the matter.

1

This school has reported that it is correcting 2000 STAR demographic information. The 1999–2000 API Growth Report, reflecting corrections to this information, will be available in December 2000.
Eligibility for awards will also be determined in December 2000.

2

The district superintendent has certified that this school experienced a significant demographic change between the Spring 1999 and Spring 2000 Stanford 9 testing periods and that the test results across years are not comparable. Therefore, a 2000 API (Growth) will not be calculated for this school.

The 2000 API (Base) will be released in January 2001.

3

This school had no Stanford 9 test results in 2000.

4

This school serves a non-traditional student population and has elected to participate in the alternative accountability system. It is projected that the first reporting for schools in the alternative accountability system will be in December 2001.

5

In 2000, this school had fewer than 100 valid Stanford 9 test scores. If the school had at least 11 students with 2000 Stanford 9 test results contributing to the API, it will receive a small school 2000 API (Base) for the 2000–2001 API reporting cycle. The small school API is designated with an asterisk (*), designed to acknowledge the greater statistical uncertainty of an API based on fewer than 100 scores.

The 2000 API (Base) will be released in January 2001.

6

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.

7

For at least one Stanford 9 content area, this school failed to test a significant proportion of students who were not exempt from testing.

8

As of the time of the release of this report, this school has unresolved discrepancies in its demographic data for the 2000 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR).

9

This school's data are being withheld pending review of the Spring 2000 Stanford 9 results by the district.

10

This school (or the district on behalf of the school) reported that it would correct 2000 STAR demographic information through the testing contractor. However, the information has not been corrected, and the validity of the school's API is in question.

11

This school (or the district on behalf of the school) reported that it would correct 2000 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, and the validity of the school's API is in question. The California Department of Education is currently reviewing the matter.

12

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 (Growth) and 2000 API (Base) will not be reported for this school.

13

The school level results from the Spring 2000 Stanford 9 may not be representative of the total student population at the school. The California Department of Education is currently reviewing the matter.

14

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). These regulations apply to both the 2000 API (Growth) and the 2000 API (Base).
