Footnote: Years presented are the final year of a school year (e.g., 2018-19 is shown as 2019). 'English Only' students are those for whom English is their primary or only language. 'Fluent-English Proficient' students have a primary language other than English but have the English language skills to succeed in regular instructional programs. 'English Learners' are students who have a primary language other than English and who lack the clearly defined English language skills of listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing necessary to succeed in regular instructional programs. Visit the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) website for detailed information about the CAASPP system and explanations of the achievement levels. The notation S refers to data that have been suppressed because there were fewer than 20 students in that group meeting or exceeding their grade-level standard. N/A means that data are not available.
