Last Friday, California released its annual list of school rankings, based on Academic Performance Index (or API) scores from tests taken in Spring of 2012, including all sorts of LAUSD schools.
Why such little fanfare to these numbers? As Rob Kuznla of the Daily Breeze notes, the scores are almost a year old. “The bigger release typically happens in August or September, when the state unveils the Academic Performance Index scores from tests that students in grades 2-11 took just a couple of months before.”
If you’re curious, the Bay Area News Group put together a searchable database that allows you filter schools by both county and school district.
