*According to the Department of Education: The school's proportion of students excused at parent request compared to its 2012 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program enrollment on the first day of testing is equal to or greater than 10 percent.
When a school's proportion of parental waivers is equal to or greater than 10 but less than 20 percent, the California Department of Education conducts standard statistical tests to check whether the students tested at the school were representative of the entire school's population.
This school failed the statistical test or its proportion of parental waivers in 2011 is 20 percent or greater, therefore, the school does not have a valid Academic Performance Index (API) for 2012.
