    Orange Unified's Panorama Elementary School Scores a
    Perfect 10-10 on State Academic Progress Index


    The California State Department of Education released the 2008-2009 Academic Performance Index (API) rankings today, Thursday, May 21st, 2009. The state API rankings are touted to allow comparison of California schools on standardized testing. The released report summarizes the results of the Spring 2008 standardized tests. These test results become the baseline to compare the Spring 2009 standardized test results which are released in September 2009.

    Schools are divided into 10 equal performance groups (1-10) with the highest group a “10” and the lowest a “1”. The two number ranking is comprised of the “state rank” (the first number) and a “similar school rank”. The “state rank” compares the school to the rest of the schools in the state. The “similar school rank” compares the school with similar demographic characteristics (i.e. race or social- economic status). A 1-4 ranking is considered below-average; a ranking of 5-6 is considered as average; a 7-10 rank is considered above-average.

    Results for Orange Unified (OUSD) schools resulted in one school scoring a perfect 10-10 rating: Panorama Elementary School. The 217 students at the school scored a 2008 API score of 911, 110 points above the required state 800 score.
