This school has received an *Adjusted Index Score - Some schools in Nevada do not have enough students to reliably compute all of the performance measures in the Nevada School Performance Framework. These schools' ratings will be determined using an adjusted index score. The adjusted index score is a percentage of points. The percent is determined by points earned out of points eligible.

What do the performance indicators mean?
Status/Growth Measure of Achievement Reduction in Achievement Gaps
The Status/Growth Measure includes the percent of students who pass the State assessments as 10th graders, the percent of 11th grade students who pass the assessments by spring of the 11th grade and the Median Growth Percentile or MGP for 10th graders. The School Median Growth Percentile is a summary of student Growth Percentiles (SGP) for a school. SGP is a measure of student achievement over time that compares the achievement of similar groups of students from one test administration to the next. Separate calculations are made for Reading/ELA and Math for each of the three performance indicators. High school achievement gaps are calculated as the difference between the subgroup proficiency rate and the statewide proficiency rate for the "all students" group. Subgroups are identified as students who are on an Individual Education Plan (IEP), are English Language Learners (ELL) or receive Free or Reduced-Price Lunch (FRL). Since this value is computed as a difference, negative numbers are possible. When this measure is reported as zero it means there is no difference between the proficiency of the subgroup and the statewide proficiency rate.
Graduation Measures College and Career Readiness
High school graduation is a combined measure of the school's graduation rate and a subgroup graduation gap analysis. Graduation gaps are defined as the difference between each subgroup's graduation rate and the statewide graduation rate. Subgroups are identified as students who are on an Individual Education Plan (IEP), are English Language Learners (ELL) or receive Free or Reduced-Price Lunch (FRL). This indicator represents a combination of multiple measures of College and Career Readiness. It includes the percent of students requiring remediation in Nevada colleges and universities, the percent of students earning advanced diplomas, the percent of students passing Advanced Placement exams and the percent of students participating in the ACT or the SAT.
Other Indicators
Currently, Other Indicators is a measure of the student Average Daily Attendance or ADA for a school and the percent of 9th grade students who have earned at least five credits by the end of 9th grade. Star Rating Adjusted Index Score

Schools do not earn additional framework points for Test Participation, but in order for a school to be classified as a 2, 3, 4 or 5 star school, the school must meet the 95% participation rate threshold or have an average of 95% participation or better from the two or three most recent years of testing. at or above 50 and below 68

"nd" displays when a point value is not determined due to an insufficient number of students in the group.
"**" displays when data is suppressed because there are less than 10 students in the applicable group.
"N/A" displays when data is either not reported or not applicable.
