ABOUT THE NSPF:
The NSPF is an accountability system in which public schools in Nevada are issued an annual index score and star rating based on the school’s performance on various measures over the prior school year. Schools are assigned an overall star rating of one to five stars, relative to total points earned, with total index points possible between 1 and 100.
