CCSD Celebrates High Achievement and Growth in Star Ratings

On Sept. 14, the Clark County School District (CCSD) Board of School Trustees and Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara celebrated that 94 schools attained a 4-Star or 5-Star ranking in the 2018 Nevada School Performance Framework released today — despite more rigorous standards.

CCSD Board of School Trustees President Deanna L. Wright heralded the 46 5-Star schools, 48 4-Star schools and 44 schools that increased at least one Star from the 2017 results.

“We know there are pockets of excellence throughout CCSD, and today we want to celebrate the many educators who are exceeding standards to deliver first-class education to their students,” Wright said.

The event was held at Addeliar Guy Elementary School in North Las Vegas, which increased from 2 Stars to 4 Stars.

This is the first time the state has implemented a new, more rigorous requirement under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) that caps points from schools with opportunity gaps, which are gaps in achievement between student subgroups.
