The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools' API Scores Show Strong Growth
If the Partnership, which is a part of LAUSD, were considered a school district in its own right, it would rank #1 among the 161 mid and large sized California school districts in terms of API growth. No other system with 10,000 or more students had gains above 30 points.
“These gains are a testament to the hard work and persistence of the thousands of students, parents, teachers and administrators who make up our Partnership,” said Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who founded the Partnership in 2007. “Each and every one of them deserves recognition for this year’s outstanding success at the Partnership. I look forward to all of us building on this momentum and achieving even greater gains going forward.”
"At the core of these results is a dedicated group of teachers and administrators who have worked tirelessly over the last several years to implement the strategies that best support their students,” said Partnership CEO Marshall Tuck. "We are very proud of our students who are proving that when people believe in them and they are given the proper supports, they will succeed."
