SMMUSD ACHIEVEMENT GAP IN API SCORES AMONG THE WORST IN CALIFORNIA

The Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) has failed to meet its adequate yearly progress (AYP) obligations in Mathematics and Language Arts in both their High Schools and Elementary Schools . The results are even worse for their minority students and socio-economically disadvantaged students throughout the district.

Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), schools must make “adequate yearly progress” (AYP) in several areas, based primarily on student performance and participation.

Performance: Each year the percent of students in each subgroup scoring “proficient” or above in English/language arts and mathematics on standardized tests must meet or exceed target percentages known as “annual measurable objectives” (AMOs)

Malibu High School, Santa Monica High School along with John Muir Elementary and Will Rogers Elementary Schools, are designated as high schools and elementary schools for AYP reporting, and they have not met all requirements for 2013 and 2014 Adequate Yearly Progress as determined by the California Department of Education.

Proficiency levels are measured using the California Standards Tests for elementary and middle schools and the California High School Exit Exam for high schools. Target percentages are known as “annual measurable objectives” (AMOs).

The AMOs for high schools is 88.9% in English/language arts and 88.7% in mathematics.

The AMOs for elementary schools is 89.2% in English/language arts and 89.5% in mathematics.
