Joseph Wardlaw Elementary School

Vallejo City Unified School District

  • California School Dashboard

    Dear Wardlaw Families,

     The state of California has created a resource called the School Dashboard.  On the Dashboard you can view achievement, discipline, and equity data for all schools in California.  I’ve begun reviewing the available data and am really happy to share some of it with you.  There are 5 levels of rankings for each category—blue, green, yellow, orange, and red.  Blue is the highest and red is the lowest. 

    At this time our school rates at the highest level, blue, for having success educating our English Learner students.  We rank at the green level for our discipline data, and at the yellow level for academic achievement in both math and English Language Arts. 

    To give you a little perspective on these rankings I looked in depth at English Language Arts achievement comparing us to schools in other districts. 

    • We are achieving at the same level or better than 2 of the 3 elementary schools in American Canyon.
    • We are achieving at the same level or better than 8 of the 11 elementary schools in Fairfield.
    • We are achieving at the same level or better than 10 of the 15 elementary schools in Napa.
    • We are achieving at the same level or better than 2 of the 4 elementary schools in Benicia.


    I will continue to explore this new resource over spring break and will have more information to share with you at Coffee with the Principal at our next PTA meeting on April 11th

    I am beyond proud of the work that our teachers and students do, with your support, every day.  I know that we will continue to grow from this point and, as always, achieve at high levels. 

    The Dashboard website can be found at the following URL and will be posted on our website soon as well.


    If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or to attend the meeting on April 11th.  Have a wonderful spring break with your children.
