State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Releases Academic Performance Ranks, 2010 Base API for California Public Schools

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today released the 2010 Base Academic Performance Index (API) and the public school ranks, marking the start of California's annual reporting cycle of academic growth and achievement.

"Today signifies the beginning of a new reporting cycle of testing and reporting under the API, which gives us one measure of school's academic performance. This is the jumping-off point where, based on last year's testing results, schools are given a number of points by which they must grow in order to satisfy the requirements of our state accountability system," said Torlakson
