For crying out loud... unbelievable about giving negative the focus when the decline is ONLY TWORead More POINTS, and also when all other schools shows increase!!! the fact that these "declining test score schools" score above 900 several years in the row which is significantly above the state standard, should be celebrated and not highlighted as a negative! Pointing out in the header that they went down just from from 900-something to 900-something-minus-TWO is just very petty and shows that the writer lacks understanding on the significance of the absolute scores they attained in comparison to other schools in the state! This is like saying "someone did worse and needs to be publicized because the test score went down from 92.2% to 92.0%" when the median test scores are in the low 80%! C'mon...

The poor reporting spin in this article is really disappointing, particularly for a community-basedRead More site. A two point difference in API scores isn't even statistically significant, especially given the increased enrollments and diversity of students across the district. Please take the time to get this right. The parents of one of the highest performing districts in the entire state deserve better.
