The Tigers Are Moving On Up in Academic Ranks
The State Board of Education and Nebraska Department of Education staff developed a state accountability system called Nebraska Performance Accountability Systems (NePAS) which is based on student scale scores within grades, buildings and districts. The system is intended to inform educators, parents, school board members, community members and policymakers about the learning progress of Nebraska schools and school districts.
There are three aspects of academic ranking in NePAS. The first aspect is status is where the school ranks in the district in each subject. In the 12-13 school year Maywood was ranked 238 in reading, 219 in math, and 193 in science. The improvements from the 12-13 school year to the 13-14 school year were outstanding. In the 13-14 school year MPS improved to 159 in reading, 107 in math, and 16 in science.
The second aspect of ranking is improvement. Improvement ranking means that we improved more than other schools from year to year. Our improvement raking in the 12-13 year was 79 in reading and 203 in math. Our improvement from the 12-13 year to 13-14 year was remarkable. In the 13-14 school year, MPS ranked 4 in reading, 2 in math, and 1 in science
The third aspect of ranking is growth. This shows how an individual student has progressed through the years. Our reading rank has improved from 137 in the 12-13 year to 13 in the 13-14 year. Our math improved from 68 in the 12-13 school year to 20 in the 13-14 school year. As you can see from the rankings the faculty and students are working hard to improve every day at Maywood Public Schools.
