Fourteen locals schools were named on the California Department of Education’s 2015-16 Open Enrollment list, which allows students at “low-achieving” schools to transfer to another higher performing district school.

The list includes 1,000 schools total across California and is whittled down to fit a ratio of 687 elementary schools, 165 middle schools, and 148 high schools. Charter schools and schools that have fewer than 100 valid state standardized tests scores are exempt from being included.

Almost every local school district had at least one school on the list. Hesperia Unified, the largest local school district, had three while the Adelanto Elementary, Victor Elementary and Snowline Joint Unified districts each had two schools on the list.

For the Adelanto Elementary School District the designation doesn’t really impact what is already occurring, according to AESD Chief Academic Officer Amy Nguyen-Hernandez. She said the entire district is considered open enrollment and allows students to attend the school of their choice granted there is space available.

“For us no matter what your home school is you can put (in) your application for another site,” Nguyen-Hernandez. “Most districts, if they have room, take that as a policy.”

In Victor Elementary School District, all 18 schools are already “schools of choice,” allowing for parents to enroll their children at any of the sites. However, transportation is only provided to students in four neighborhood quadrants.

VESD Superintendent Jan Gonzales said this idea was not spurred by the state’s “open enrollment” requirement given to low-achieving schools. She said other local districts may choose it because so many schools in one district are mandated to have the policy through the state’s “program improvement.”

“It’s just a belief in our district that we’ve held that parents should have a choice in where they go,” Gonzales said. “We want them to be vested in the programs and opportunities that we have. That was done long before No Child Left Behind and open enrollment.”

Gonzales said the idea came from Academy of Performing Arts and Foreign Language in Victorville about 20 years ago.

According to local school officials, the data used to determine this year’s open enrollment list is two years old.

“Because the state didn’t score the Smarter Balanced tests last year, they just froze the data from two years ago so everyone stayed at the same level,” Nguyen-Hernandez said. “So how true that is to what’s currently happening right now with the students — it may or may not be true.”

At its March 2014 meeting, the State Board of Education decided not to calculate 2014 Academic Performance Index scores amid historic reforms including the transition to Common Core and the new California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress system. Therefore, the 2015-16 open enrollment list was produced based on the 2013 Growth API scores, according to the CDE. The state is also in the middle of determining the next program it will use to hold schools accountable and may completely get rid of the API system.
