State Identifies Low-Performing Schools in San Diego County

The state on Tuesday released a report detailing the lowest-performing schools in each California school district, and more than 30 campuses in San Diego County landed on the list.

Here are the schools identifying as the lowest performing in the state. The list is organized by each district and should not be read in any specific order.

The SDUSD released the following statement regarding the 15 schools in its district that made the list.
"The new data is an important reminder of how much work remains to be done before our society can really claim to have closed the gap between students from historically disadvantaged communities and the student population at large. The State of California has embraced this equity challenge in a comprehensive way through the Local Control Funding Formula, and San Diego Unified is equally committed to this work. Together, we have shown progress in improving outcomes across all student groups, but it remains very much a work in progress, as these results make clear."
