The Culver City Unified School District is celebrating the release of the latest 2012 Academic Performance Index Scores, with all Culver City schools seeing an increase in their results.
“These are very exciting results and they underscore the efforts made by our teachers, students and staff,” said CCUSD Superintendent Dave LaRose in an official release. “We will continue to strive for even better results, but these numbers are very impressive.”
El Rincon Elementary School, Linwood E. Howe Elementary School and Culver City Middle School all saw an API increase of 30 or more points, while El Marino Language School and Farragut Elementary School received API scores of 940 or greater. Culver Park High School saw the largest increase, going from a Base API of 44 to a Growth API of 594.
“By providing quality professional development and implementing effective interventions at all school sites, CCUSD teachers have continued to improve student achievement,” said Eileen Carroll, assistant superintendent – Educational Services. “This cycle of continuous improvement is to be commended especially in a time of severe budget challenges. It is especially impressive to see that all of our school sites had gains in their AIP scores.”
State Superintendent Tom Torlakson said in an official release that the local increases mirror an increase across the state, noting that for the first time, a majority of California's public schools met or surpassed the statewide target for academic achievement on the 2012 Academic Performance Index (API).
All five CCUSD elementary schools as well as Culver City Middle School and Culver City High School have surpassed the state target of 800.
