Nebraska School Rankings Released to Public
Dr. Roger Breed, Nebraska Department of Education Commissioner, released the state’s new Nebraska Performance Accountability System (NePAS) on Tuesday, November 20. NePAS was developed to report how students in each of Nebraska’s 249 school districts scored on statewide reading, math, science and writing tests.
NePAS provides numerous rankings in four grade level configurations: Grades 3-5; Grades 6-8; Grades 9-12; and District (grades 3-12). Within each grade level, districts received separate rankings for each statewide test, NeSA-Reading; NeSA-Math; NeSA-Science; and NeSA-Writing. These results can be found in the Status section of NePAS. The Status section provides 15 rankings.
Auburn Public Schools educators are generally pleased with district rankings, which fall within the following percentages:
Top 10% -- 2 indicators
Top 20% -- 5 indicators
Top 25% -- 9 indicators
Top 33.3% -- 11 indicators
Top 50 % -- 14 indicators
A complete listing of APS rankings can be found in the State of School Report Card on the Nebraska Department of Education web page at http://www.reportcard.education.ne.gov/
Statement from Kevin Reiman, Superintendent of Auburn Public Schools, concerning the showing of 2016, Obama’s America.
There have been some concerns about the State Theater showing the political movie 2016, Obama’s America.
As much as possible, the State Theater is run as an independent business, separate from the District. The school administration has set some broad parameters on the movies that it will show. These guidelines primarily concern the rating the movie has received. As a general rule, the theater will not show movies that have garnered a rating of R. We will not show movies with a rating of NC-17.
When we submitted our requests for movies for this week 2016, Obama’s America was our fourth choice. We were turned down on the first 3 movies so we ended up with 2016, Obama’s America.
2016, Obama’s America fit within the guidelines set by the school administration and was requested by several members of our community. Denying 2016, Obama’s America, when it fit within our guidelines, would be censorship. We would hold the same standards to a movie that was critical of Mr. Romney.
District #29 does not endorse any political organization or philosophy. We encourage our students to become critical thinkers of all political philosophies and to make decisions based on their own values. We would ask the movie attendees do the same this week.
