This category of data tells us the number of kids in a school who are on grade level (also called proficient) or above grade level (also called advanced), regardless of their unique needs.

For Elementary and Middle Schools, this is the number of students in 3rd-8th grade who are on or above grade level on the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC).

This school has 59% of kids on or above grade level.
That means 6 out of 10 kids are on track to be ready for college or a career of their choice.

This school has 61% of kids on or above grade level in Math
This school is 57% of kids on or above grade level in English Language Arts

This category also considers how many students in 3rd grade are at or above grade level. 3rd grade is an important year for all kids as a way to measure their future success.

This school has 59% of 3rd grade students at or above grade level.

Equity: Math SBAC Composite Scores by sub-group
Equity in education means that personal or social circumstances such as gender, ethnic origin or family background, do not impact a student’s achievement. This data shows students on or above grade level across the school’s student population. Big differences may suggest that some student groups are not getting the support they need to succeed.

This category of data tells us how fast kids at the school are growing in terms of their academic achievement. This measure combines two things:
  1. How well the school is growing ALL of its students compared to last year (Median Growth Percentile, MGP).
  2. How many students are growing fast enough to be on grade level within three years (Adequate Growth Percentile, AGP).
Math Growth
  • This school’s Math MGP is 65. That means that if you compare an average student to 100 other students than s/he is growing faster than 65 of them.
  • This school’s Math AGP is 60. That means 6/10 kids are on track to be on grade level within 3 years.
English Language Arts Growth
  • This school’s English Language Arts MGP is 50. That means that if you compare an average student to 100 other students than s/he is growing faster than 50 of them.
  • This school’s English Language Arts AGP is 52. That means 5/10 kids are on track to be on grade level within 3 years.

Adequate Growth Percentile, AGP
This measure is based on how many at-risk students are growing fast enough to be on grade level within three years.

51% of students who were not on grade level last year, met their growth target to be on track in three years in Math.

38% of students who were not on grade level last year, met their growth target to be on track in three years in English Language Arts.

Students from households that qualify by income to receive free or reduced-price lunch at their school. Economically disadvantaged students have historically been identified as those from low-income families, earning below 185 percent of the federal poverty line.
Students on an Individual Education Plan (IEP) are those students who are receiving special education services. For the purposes of the Nevada School Performance Framework, only students who were on an IEP at the time of testing factor into the IEP calculations.
