Comparing Students in Each California Partnership Academy with Non-Academy Students at the Same High School, 2009-10

enrolling high-risk students, California Partnership Academies, CPA, non-academy students

This report provides, for the first time, comparisons between students in each CPA and non-academy students at the same high school. Administrators and teachers can use this information to guide improvement of individual CPAs.

This report uses data on academy students from the October 2010 reports submitted by each CPA to the California Department of Education (CDE) for the 2009-10 school year. In addition, this report also uses information from the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program to compare the characteristics of academy and non-academy students, and to analyze scores from the California Standards Tests (CSTs).
