Characteristics of California School Districts in Program Improvement: 2008 Update

By Eric Crane, Kevin (Chun-Wei) Huang, Min Huang, Kenwyn Derby


This descriptive analysis, prepared by REL West, updates an earlier study of California’s Title I school districts in program improvement, Characteristics of California School Districts in Program Improvement. This brief reveals that by aggregating student data to the district level, California’s accountability system continues to be able to identify shortfalls in student academic performance that are not picked up when looking only at the school level.

Information about the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) system and other REL publications can be found at the National Regional Educational Laboratory Program.
