This descriptive analysis updates an earlier study of California's Title I school districts in program improvement, Characteristics of California School Districts in Program Improvement, produced by REL West in 2007. This brief reveals that by aggregating student data to the district level, California’s accountability system continues to be able to identify shortfalls in student academic performance that are not picked up when looking only at the school level.
