Chualar Elementary School Shines Because of State Scores
Chualar Elementary School received great news from the state regarding our School’s test scores in early September 2013. The following are the test score results from the State Department of Education, the two major public school assessments tools that are used to compute these assessments are: Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and the state Academic Performance Index (API). These two assessment instruments are used by the State and the Federal Govenment to measure academic accomplishment of public schools. Chualar Elementary School met its criteria in both subjects measured in the API, Math and English Language Arts. In math, 51.4 percent of Chualar students scored in the proficient or advanced categories. In English Language Arts, 45.1 percent scored in proficient or advanced. Overall, the district jumped 25 points on the API scale, from 727 to 752!
