The California Department of Education published the revised California School Dashboard at 10 a.m. on December 6th, 2018. On California’s Department of Education Website, Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) families and the community will see all new data visuals representing the performance and growth of the district/schools based on multiple sets of data.

Overall, NMUSD maintained the designation as high performing (indicated as green on the new visual colored gauges) in the following areas:  Math, English, College and Career Readiness, Chronic Absenteeism and Graduation rate. The district performance declined one level to the yellow designation on the colored gauge in the area of Suspensions. The district “Met Standards” on all the locally reported indicators for the second year in a row. These local indicators include Parent Engagement, Implementation of Academic Standards, Local Climate Survey, Access to a Broad Course of Study, and Basics (Teachers, Instructional Materials, Facilities).

“The upward trend of our scores can be directly attributed to the exemplary efforts of our dedicated professionals - teachers, support staff and administrators,” said Superintendent Dr. Frederick Navarro. “Each comes to work every day with the express intent of getting every student to achieve and exceed grade level skills and knowledge.  It is this focused dedication that continues to move the needle in the right direction for every student and our district as a whole,” he said.

The Dashboard is expected to be easier to read and understand as a result of feedback from stakeholders after the 2017 pilot dashboard was released. Enhancements include an easier way to compare overall school or district test scores with state averages, mobile-friendly design, and translation of academic terms into Spanish.
