API of 839 and SIMILAR SCHOOL RANKING OF 10!!
At Bates Elementary School, we are committed to moving our students forward academically and helping all learners succeed at their grade level standards and beyond.  Our commitment, from students, parents, teachers, and all staff is evidenced by our continuous academic growth over the past ten years.  The students from Bates Elementary have exceeded the state expectation of 800 on the Academic Performance Index (API) for the 5th year in a row! Based on their scores from the Spring 2013 STAR Test (CST/CMA), Bates students received an API score of 839!  That is an increase of 1 point from 2012.   In a Similar Schools Ranking of 100 schools similar to Bates, we received a score of 10 out of 10.  Only 1 school had a higher API score than Bates Elementary!  Congratulations to all Viking students for their hard work and a warm thank you to all parents, relatives, community members, and especially school staff who have helped make this great achievement possible.

TITLE I ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS -
2014, 2011 & 2010

Bates Elementary School is one of only 106 schools in California to be awarded the 2014 Title I Academic Achievement Award.  We are very excited about this award as it acknowledges our intense commitment to learning.  This award recognizes the great efforts of all staff members, parents, and of course, the wonderful Bates students. 

To meet the criteria for this distinction, the school must demonstrate that all students are making significant progress toward proficiency on California's academic content standards. Additionally, the school's socioeconomically disadvantaged students must have doubled the achievement targets set for them for two consecutive years.

CALIFORNIA DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL AWARD - 2010

The recognition program awards schools that are in the upper half of the statewide distribution of Academic Performance Index (API) scores; have met API growth targets and federal Adequate Yearly Progress requirements; are narrowing the achievement gap; and are implementing the priorities of state and federal accountability programs. The schools identified serve as models of achievement for other schools.  For more information about the California Distinguished School Award, please visit the CDE Web page at: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/sr/cs/

Bates School is an Accelerated Reader Enterprise Site


Accelerated Reader and Renaissance Place has been implemented here in at Bates for many years now. For your reference, we have supplied FAQ and other information on the Accelerated Reader program.

We would also like to introduce Renaissance Home Connect. It is a new feature that Renaissance Learning has made available for parents to track how their students are performing with their AR (Accelerated Reader) goals, and also the books they have read and their corresponding score on the quizzes.
