20 Mar CCSD unveils data dashboard for all schools
The Clark County School District (CCSD) launched the District Overview online data dashboard that allows the public to view data for key measures of student performance at each CCSD school. The District Overview data dashboard is available online at data.ccsd.net. This new page provides performance transparency for parents/guardians, the community, policymakers, and educators, with quick access to timely and comprehensive data about the state of education in the District.
The project emerged as a priority when the community identified data transparency as an important area during the Focus on the Future for Kids input sessions. The sessions were focused on how best to utilize Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds.
The dashboard will allow parents and the community to monitor attendance rates, assessment data, behavior, and other performance measures online. The dashboard will be updated regularly following the Board of School Trustees reporting timelines.
Data points include a range of measurements:
The Enrollment dashboard provides details about student enrollment. Additionally, the dashboard answers questions about middle and high school student participation in advanced coursework. All data is available at the District level, Region level, municipality and at the individual school level.
The Attendance dashboard answers questions about the percentage of students with on-time attendance each week. The dashboard displays weekly data on a quarterly
basis. This is used to show how attendance fluctuates weekly, with higher numbers signifying higher attendance. This dashboard allows individuals to narrow down results by District, Region, municipality, or school.
The Behavior dashboard answers questions about the count of behavior events that are resolved with restorative resolutions, with the ability to compare to the count of resolutions that are categorized as removals from instruction. The dashboard also shows the count of incidents resolved with suspensions and the count resolved with expulsions. The dashboard is updated regularly; however, due to the length of time for certain behavior processes, data may change at the school level.
The MAP Growth dashboard provides indicators of student outcomes based on the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Growth Assessment. The MAP Growth Assessment is provided to students in Kindergarten–Grade 10 in reading and mathematics and Grades 3–8 in science. Additional information about MAP Growth is available by clicking here.
The State Tests dashboard provides detail about student achievement on Nevada summative assessments, including the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC), ACT, WIDA, and Nevada Science Criterion Referenced Test (CRT). For elementary and middle school, the SBAC Mathematics and English Language Arts are administered to students in Grades 3–8 annually in the spring, and the Nevada Science assessment is given to students in Grades 5 and 8.
In high school, students take the Nevada Science assessment in either Grade 9 or 10, depending on when they take the relevant science course. High school students take the ACT in the spring of their Grade 11 year as the designated college and career readiness assessment and a graduation requirement.
Finally, the WIDA is administered to all English Language Learners in Grades K–12. Reported numbers may, at times, not match what is displayed on the NSPF official Star Rating Reports due to differences in business rules.
The District Overview data dashboard is available online data.ccsd.net and is funded through ESSER funds.
