A district's reading proficiency averages the score of all students in a district. This average proficiency rate is bolstered by elementary students, who often perform better on tests than those in high school.
This chart compares a district's overall reading proficiency score with the score of its high school students, demonstrating that the performance of a district's graduates may not always be as good as the overall proficiency rate suggests.
*"Spending per Student" is calculated by dividing each district's 2013-2014 total budget by district enrollment.
**"Proficient" students are those who read at grade level.
