School Quality Improvement Index (SQII) reports
Academic performance is only one of the many factors to consider when measuring school quality, and the new School Quality Improvement Index (“the Index”) embodies our more holistic approach to school and district accountability by including measures of social-emotional learning and school culture-climate in addition to academic achievement. The Index also makes more students visible by including results for any student group with 20 or more students.
Notice of potential disclosure of information
The California Department of Education (CDE) is currently in litigation in which the plaintiffs, Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, have requested numerous documents and student data collected and stored by CDE. To comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), CDE is required to inform parents and students of the disclosure of such information. The CDE will maintain custody of the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) database. No personally identifiable information can be released to the plaintiffs until they prove to the court that the method to be used to store the student data is secure.
