In all subject areas, SPS made larger CPI gains between 2012 and 2013 than the state and the average for the 25 largest urban districts. Significant progress was made on closing the achievement gap for ELL students between SPS and the state; with ELL students achieving a higher CPI in 2013 than in 2012 in nearly every grade level and subject. SPS students with disabilities had larger increases in CPI from 2012 to 2013 than students with disabilities statewide.

Hispanic/Latino students narrowed the achievement gap considerably, with increases in CPI from 2012 to 2013 larger than gains made by Hispanic/Latino students across the state.
