Section Menu


These data files include performance category by charter school data. Refer to the record layout for details regarding the content in each file.

The Charter School Performance Category Data File is updated annually with the release of the California School Dashboard (Dashboard) when new performance levels (colors) are assigned. Due to Assembly Bill 130 (Chapter 41, Statutes of 2021), performance colors were not reported on the Dashboard in 2020 or 2021. In 2022, reporting on the Dashboard used one-year of data to report Status to determine student performance. The 2023 Dashboard reflects a full return of California’s accountability system with the reporting of Status (also known as current year data), Change (the difference between the current year data and the prior year data), and performance levels (colors) for all state indicators except for the College/Career Indicator (CCI). For the 2023 Dashboard, Status levels were used as a proxy for performance colors on the CCI where there were at least 30 students.

For information regarding the determination of charter school performance categories, please refer to the Determining Charter School Performance Category Flyer (PDF).
