^This goal was eliminated for the 14-15 school year by the state, but is supposed to be back in 2015-16.
* This is the percentage recommended by the creators of this test to expect. STAR is a new districtwide test that is shorter in duration than previous assessments.
**If the fund balance is used for OPEB, reducing the District’s property tax or one-time expenditures to start up a new program, or one-time cost of a capital expenditure, then it would not count against the goal.
