Welcome to 3 new Student council members:  Citlali Arroyo (11), Alexa Mansour (11), and Jonathon Thompson (10)

Review of API data by Mr. Garza.  Delays caused by the state kept us from sending the data out prior to today’s meeting.  Data still missing is with our Hispanic population.  Reason for the problem at the state level is the communication between our Power School program and the district registration program.

The data did show that there was a slight dip in a few of our groups.  (Please refer to data graphs for specifics).

We are above AYI score (Annual Yearly Growth) and our API is at 83 which is still above the 10-9 ranking exceeding all state schools in California.  Our current enrollment is 1270 as of 102412.


Overall we are hovering but only lost 2 point but we do have more student taking vigorous courses and understand that the increase would affect the numbers.  There is room for growth and this year we are hoping to increase those scores.  The council will be looking at ways to fund material and tools to help in the areas of focus.


Conferences attended since last meeting were:

Linda Brown went to CSU expository reading and writing conference and will report next month.




Meeting adjourned: 1:33PM
