<div>This tab shows several factors to rate schools’ progress in leveling the educational playing field, giving students an equal chance to succeed. Besides academics, schools are graded on basic services, such as building quality, learning conditions, parent engagement and overall climate. The goal is to eliminate the so-called achievement gap so black and Latino students perform at the same level as other groups.</div>
<div> Not available when the California Dashboard debuts, this tab will display year-by-year data that takes into account state and local factors. Officials say the data will show academic performance, academic engagement, school conditions and climate in a simple-to-understand format.</div>
<div> Under this tab, users can learn the performance of various groups, such as English learners, students with disabilities, foster youth, homeless kids and socioeconomically disadvantaged children. The same color-coded system can be used to break down students as a whole or in specific groups. Officials plan to make this feature available in the future.</div>
<div>Schools are rated on five color-coded performance categories, from red (lowest) to blue (highest). The new system won’t just measure how schools are doing, it also will show if scores improve or decline over time.</div>
