Note: 2010 is the first year for which ETW assigned district grades.

Note: The number of districts included in the rank varies by metric, because not every district has data for each metric. For example, an African-American-White achievement gap cannot be calculated if a district does not have a “numerically significant subgroup” of African-American students. The California Department of Education defines a “numerically significant subgroup” for the API as: 100 or more students with valid STAR Program scores, or 50 or more students with valid STAR Program scores who make up at least 50 percent of the total valid STAR Program scores.
