The California Department of Education plans to release its annual standardized test scores for school districts this morning.
The tests in English and math measure whether school districts meet state education standards. Students between the second and 11th grades take the exam.
California Department of Education spokesman Paul Hefner said the state aims for students to be at least proficient.
"They are our best benchmark that everyone or almost everyone in the school system up and down California participates in," Hefner said. "They’re our way to gauge what students know and can do over time."
The state's releasing this year's results a couple of weeks later than usual because of a security breach during testing. Students at a dozen schools, including some in LA County, posted questions online. The state Department of Education is investigating those results to make sure they’re valid.
Come back here at 10 a.m. for the results.
