Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[5]

Academic performance

California's Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program, which includes the California Standards Tests (CST), the California Modified Assessment (CMA) and the California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA), measures the achievement of California content standards for grades 2-11. STAR results include English and mathematics in grades 2-11, science in grades 5 and 8-11 and history/social science in grades 8, 10 and 11. In high school, math and science tests reflect the course in which the student is enrolled. There are five STAR benchmarks to indicate a student's proficiency. "Proficient" or "Advanced" indicates that a student is meeting or exceeding state standards, which is the desired achievement goal for all students. The following table compares the percentage of district students who score at a "Proficient" or "Advanced" level with the statewide averages from the 2011-2012 school year.[12]
