State of the Schools Report
PLSD Continues to Excel! 
 
The State of the Schools Report for Nebraska is released by the Nebraska Department of Education each fall. This report includes demographic information about each school district; student achievement data in the area of math, reading, writing and science; and many other facts and statistics. The PLSD continues to do very well. This success is attributed to the hard work and dedication of Papillion-La Vista teachers! Thank you teachers for your hard work!
 
 
What tests are comparable among districts?
  • NeSA – R is the state reading test. This test was given for the first time in 2010 to students in 3rd -11th grade. It is the same test for all students in the state of Nebraska. Students continue to score above the state average all grade levels. Improvement was shown at all grade levels except high school, which remained steady. PLSD was #1 in High School reading and #2 District overall when compared to other Class A schools.
  • NeSA – M is the state math test. This test was given for the first time in 2011 to students in 3rd -11th grade. It is the same test for all students in the state of Nebraska. Math is a target area for improvement and the PLSD would expect to see improvement as soon as next year. PLSD was #2 in math when compared to the Class A Schools.
  • NeSA – W is the state writing test. This test has been given since 2002 and it is the same test given for all students in the state of Nebraska.

  • Standardized Achievement Tests – These are national standardized tests designed to compare local students to a national sample of students who took the same multiple choice test. However, there are many types of standardized tests. The PLSD gives the Terra Nova to 3rd and 7th grade students. Students continue to score above the 50th percentile.
  • ACT – is a national high school exam. It is voluntary for students but required for college entrance. Approximately 76% of the PLSD seniors take the test.
