Beneficiaries of the Williams Case

Latest information on the landmark Superior Court case to provide all students equal access to instructional materials, safe schools, and quality teachers.

Schools Ranked in Deciles 1-3

Certain provisions of the Williams settlement legislation (i.e., funding for emergency facilities repairs and annual county superintendent visits and reviews) apply to schools ranked in deciles 1-3 as determined every three years by the Base Academic Performance Index (API). The most current list, posted below, was determined using the 2012 Base API. If a school did not receive a 2012 Base API, the 2011 Base API was used. California Education Code Section 1240(c)(2)(F) and (J) specifies that county superintendents must monitor decile 1-3 schools for: (1) sufficiency of instructional materials; (2) facilities deficiencies; (3) accuracy of data reported on the School Accountability Record Card (SARC) related to sufficiency of materials and facilities deficiencies; and (4) teacher misassignments and teacher vacancies. The following links will help you identify which schools are monitored annually under the Williams Settlement.
