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.
Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI)
What is a CSI school?
Schools identified as in need of school improvement.
How are schools identified?
(1) The lowest performing five percent of schools based on an adjusted Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF) index score, (2) All one-star schools on the Rising Stars List, and (3) High schools with a four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate below 67 percent.
Why is NVLA a CSI school?
CSI schools were first designated in the 2017-2018 school year using graduation rates from the Class of 2016. The graduation rate for NVLA for the class of 2016 was 59.28% and NVLA was identified as a Rising Star School.
Our Graduation rate is now over 83%. Why are we still a CSI school?
CSI schools remain as part of a cohort for a three-year improvement process period. The 2020-21 school year is our final year in the cohort.
