What is NePAS?
NePas is the new State accountability system released for the first time the fall of 2012. As a part of NePAS a ranking and a score is released in three different areas. Those areas include:
Status- Current reality based on scale score given for grade 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 and 3-12
Improvement – (program data) based on last year to this year same grade. For example: grade 3 last year to grade 3 this year.
Growth – (cohort data) last year to this year same students. For example: grade 3 from last year to grade 4 this year (same students)
Note: If status is low then growth and improvement should be reviewed closely. If status is high the ability to show high improvement and growth becomes more challenging. Also, it is important to note that rankings are based on scale scores not percentage proficient. This is a change from how we have looked at the data in the past.
Keep things in perspective . . .
The most important factor with NeSA, and all other measures of student achievement, is students are learning.  We will continue to implement the continuous improvement process to increase teacher effectiveness and student learning in every classroom. PLSD employees are working hard and that hard work shows because over a two year period improvement is seen in every area! PLSD parents should be proud of the hard work our teachers put in and the improvement that students are making.
