What is your message Mr. Carini? Green Hills is a bad school to be at? I think you should contribute some positive and encouraging message/input instead of just a chart to compare.

The message is neither positive/negative. I am simply comparing the API scores from 2009 to 2010.

I think that, as a journalist, Mr. Carini is just being impartial, presenting the facts for us to act/decide.(e.g. We need to encourage more parent participation at GH) That being said, we can also use compare the Millbrae schools with other Bay Area school districts.

Your data is not current. The data comparing 2010 and 2011 is available at: http://api.cde.ca.gov/Acnt2011/2011GrthAPIDst.aspx?allcds=4168973 The data shows higher scores for 2 schools and lower scores for two schools.

Hi Scott, Below were the numbers submitted by the Millbrae School District. They are in line with the 2011CDE numbers you sent, which are the same numbers that i have in my graf (2010-2011) year. I guess I should clarify that 2009 is the 2009-2010 academic year and 2010 numbers are for the 2010-2011 academic year. https://millbrae.csbaagendaonline.net/cgi-bin/WebObjects/millbrae-eAgenda.woa/files/MTMzMDQ1NDc2OTIzNS9taWxsYnJhZWVBZ2VuZGEvNjIvODExL0ZpbGVz/2010-201-_millbrae_school_district_sarc_spotlights.pdf
