CAASPP Achievement Data

 

 

 

 

The 2015 petition for renewal approved and authorized by the California State Board of Education listed the following benchmarks to be met which have been met by AIUPNA’s first term:

 

 

If the charter school fails to meet the primary growth measures, the following measures will be considered to determine whether the school should, nevertheless, be considered an academic success:

MET

All students will graduate with the academic preparation and achievement necessary for college and career readiness

1. Graduation rates - Increase rate by 1%

2. UC/CSU eligibility - Increase percent of students who have completed UC/CSU (A-G) requirements by 1%

3. Student feedback and goal setting - Increase positive responses regarding student attitude, interest, involvement and goal setting related to career readiness by 1% as indicated by student surveys, or teacher/counselor observations or other measurement deemed appropriate by school leadership and personnel

Analysis of Comparable Achievement

According to the 2017 CAASPP results reported, 73% of Economically Disadvantaged American Indian students K-12 in California did not meet the ELA standards, and 83% did not meet Math standards. Meanwhile, 68% of Economically Disadvantaged Latinos did not meet ELA standards statewide, and 79% did not meet math standards. Additionally, considering that only 3 out 4 Latino students graduate from high school in California, it is alarming that of these only ONE student graduates UC/CSU Eligible according to publically available state performance data. Anahuacalmecac student performance meets or exceeds statewide trends among socioeconomically disadvantaged Latinos and other American Indians that flatlines student performance levels for over three-quarters of these students across the state even with vast increases in school funding and resources elsewhere. While fiscal hardships imposed upon Anahuacalmecac by the AUTHORIZER, certainly hampered our school’s ability to provide our students’ constitutionally guaranteed equal access to education resources and opportunity, our school has done everything within its means to mitigate these inequities while prioritizing our educational mission and our community’s youth.

COMPARISONS (2017-2018 AIUP Data):

Anahuacalmecac students outperformed socioeconomically disadvantaged Latino and American Indian students in both English Language Arts and Math overall. All figures compare 2018 scores for AIUPNA to the latest publicly available data.

  • Whereas, in 2018, 37% of AIUP students in grades 3-11 met or exceeded standards, 33% of socioeconomically disadvantaged Latino students in California met or exceeded ELA standards in 2017.
  • While 29% of AIUP students in grades 3-11 met or exceeded Math standards, only 22% of socioeconomically disadvantaged Latino students in California met or exceeded Math standards.
  • Socioeconomically disadvantaged Latinos and American Indian students enrolled in charter schools statewide were outperformed in meeting or exceeding standards by Anahuacalmecac students by 10% points.
  • Anahuacalmecac students also outperformed socioeconomically disadvantaged American Indian students who are enrolled in charter schools and met or exceeded standards in both ELA and Math (comparing Anahuacalmecac’s 2018 scores to the most recent publicly available data statewide).
  • Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate reports a statewide graduation rate of 49%, LAUSD 54%, Anahuacalmecac 100%
It is most remarkable to note that despite vast curricular, economic and institutional differences between AIUPNA and other schools or districts, Latino student achievement is alarmingly low ACROSS THE STATE.
