ReportingYear Reporting Year 2021


* California received a federal waiver and was not required to report performance levels (or colors) on the 2021 Dashboard. Because these data are not available, determination of exit from the CSI–Lowest Performing Schools and ATSI categories was not possible. Therefore, schools designated in either category in 2019–20 remained in place through 2021–22.

However, local educational agencies were required to report graduation rate data which the California Department of Education (CDE) is using to determine if those schools designated as CSI–Low Graduation Rate in 2019–20 were eligible to exit. Schools with a three-year (i.e., 2018–19, 2019–20, and 2020–21 school years) average graduation rate at or above 68 percent exited the CSI–Low Graduation Rate Schools category.
