    Orange H.S. one of 242 CDE "flagged" schools



    Orange High School one of 242 state-wide schools ‘flagged'  for STAR Test violation

    Orange Unified’s Orange High School is one of 242 state-wide schools that has had their STAR 2013 Testing results flagged because at least one student from the school had a STAR related posting on a social media sites.  

    Orange High and 225 other schools fall into the less sever category of  2013 Identified Schools with Images on Social Media (Not including test items).   Sixteen schools, including Anaheim Union’s Magnolia High School ( the only Orange County school)  fall in the more sever 2013 Schools with Social Media Postings of Legible Test Items list.

    Last year 216 schools were flagged because of social media postings. This year’s social media breaches increase took place despite a serious attempt by the state to stop the security breaches after last year.

    If a social media posting security breach affects more than 5% of the students tested, the schools Academic Performance Index (API) results could be invalidated. The California Department of Education will make a final determination on security breaches and how each does or does not affect each schools accountability reports when it releases.

    The warnings on the schools test results page reads:
    A security breach involving social media exposure of 2013 STAR test material has been confirmed at this school site. Caution should be used when interpreting these results.
