2019-2020 California Dashboard Presentation
Based on the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which passed in 2013, California has a new accountability system that is based on multiple measures. These measures are used to determine local educational agency (LEA) and school progress toward meeting the needs of their students. The measures are based on factors that contribute to a quality education, including high school graduation rates, college/career readiness, student test scores, chronic absenteeism rates, English learner (EL) progress, suspension rates, and parent engagement.
Performance on these multiple measures mentioned above are reported through the new California School Dashboard which was first released in spring 2017. The current dashboard has been released and includes data from the spring 2019 CAASPP tests. The data reflects how and where LEAs and individual schools should improve and emphasizes equity by focusing on student group performance.
Performance on the state measures is based on data from both the current and prior years. Any LEA, school, or student group with at least 30 students in both the current and prior year receives a performance level for each applicable state measure. There are five performance levels, and each is assigned a different color: Red is the lowest performance level, Orange is the second lowest, Yellow is the middle point, Green is the second highest, and Blue is the highest performance level.
The current dashboard data shows overall performance between the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years.
