API LOW PERFORMANCE SCHOOL DATABASE
Instructions for Finding API Rankings
Please use the following steps to locate the API for a specific school:
- Click on API by County
- Select a County and click on the "Submit" button.
- On the next screen, select the Base Report for the most recent year for which API scores are available. After selecting the Base Report year, click on the "Submit" button.
- The resulting screen lists Districts and Schools located within each District in alphabetical order. Scroll down through this list until you find the District and the School whose API Statewide rank you want. Note: only an API Statewide Rank - NOT the Similar Schools Rank nor the Growth Targets -determines whether a school is a low-performing school.
- Low-performing schools are those with an API Statewide Rank of 5 or less.
Note: If you are seeking the API ranking for a specific school, and that school does not have an API ranking or is not listed in the database, please contact the school or the district directly to attempt to find the API ranking. If after speaking to the school or the district you still have questions about the eligibility of that school for fulfilling a GTF teaching obligation, please contact the GTF office.
