NV School Ratings Report

The Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF) is an annual summary of school performance developed by Nevada stakeholders. The NSPF meets State and Federal policy requirements and provides each school level with a unique rating system. The NSPF is a compensatory accountability system made up of a series of Performance Indicators and Measures. This means that low performance in one indicator/measure can be made up for by high performance in another. Performance Indicators are broad general categories within the framework, while Measures are the building blocks of a Performance Indicator. Anchored on statewide performance expectations, schools earn points based on their performance on each Measure. These points are added together to produce an overall summative rating, or a Star Rating.

School performance ratings can be found through the Nevada Report Card website:

http://nevadareportcard.nv.gov/DI/.  

 

In accordance with the U.S. Department of Education ESEA waiver to suspend accountability requirements for the school year 2021-2022 in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, please review the following:
 

NSPF Star Ratings
NSPF school ratings and accountability indicators will be carried over for an additional year from the 2018-2019 reporting year. State and District information that can be reported for the current reporting year such as student enrollment, graduation rates, etc. will be updated into the Nevada Accountability Portal. For the most recent NSPF school rating reports please select the 2018-2019 reporting year.
 

Assessment Results
All assessments were required for the 2020-2021 school year and results will be reported. The 95% participation requirement for assessments was waived, thus assessment reporting for 2020-21 may look different than in prior years. Additionally, testing timelines were extended for WIDA (English language proficiency). These results will be reported when available (early 2022).
 

Chronic Absenteeism Rates
Chronic absenteeism was waived for NSPF reporting but will be reported for EDfacts and the Nevada Report Card.
 

Potential Partial/Modified Reporting

Please note context will be provided for data sets where data are incomplete. This information is provided to assist in understanding the data sets impacted by the pandemic.
