2010 Academic Achievement Awards

The Holdenville High School 2010 API Scores Increased from 1050 to 1373 and was one of 74 Oklahoma school districts earning recognition from theState Department of Education.

Oklahoma's API was created in law to measure the performance and progress of a school or district based on several factors, primarily state assessment scores, that contribute to overall educational success. The possible scores range from 0 to 1,500. The factors used in the calculation of an API score include:

• Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP)
• School completion - including attendance, dropout, and graduation rates.
• Academic excellence - includes ACT scores and participation, Advanced Placement (AP) credit, and college remediation rates    in reading and mathematics.

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is based on state defined performance benchmarks. Schools that fail to meet the AYP benchmarks (performance continues below a federally acceptable level) face a number of possible sanctions.
