A Data-driven System is a process that allows all students equal opportunity to demonstrate what they have been taught and be able to do. Nebraska City Public Schools exhibit a dedicated commitment to using data to support a continuous and informative process for the improvement of student learning. The School Improvement Process is a reflection of the commitment Nebraska City Public Schools to ensure growth and change for the sole purpose of increasing student learning.
The Nebraska City Public Schools participate in systematic and systemic School Improvement as established in state accreditation requirements (Rule 10). All schools follow the AdvancEd Model for School Improvement and have achieved accreditation. The district has a School Improvement Plan that includes district level goals for increasing student achievement and improving instruction and behavior goals to ensure a safe and respectable environment for all learners. Implementation and review of local standards for learning, behavior data reviews, gathering of information about student performance, and reporting of progress (standards, assessment, and accountability activities) have become an integral part of the district’s School Improvement Process. The process guides the district in setting goals, assessing progress and reporting results.
