NEBRASKA EDUCATION PROFILE
Welcome to the 2016-2017 Nebraska Education Profile. The Nebraska Education Profile (NEP) provides information and data about Nebraska public schools and student performance. The NEP highlights the performance of students by district and school building in English language Arts, mathematics, writing, and science as well as performance by groups of students, including race and ethnicity, poverty, special education, and English Language Learners.
The NEP is the initial transformation of data from the State of the Schools Report and is intended to help inform the public and school officials about school district performance. The NEP is also intended to inform parents, community leaders, and policymakers about our education system and to provide data needed for sound decision making by education leaders. The NEP will continue to grow and change as data is added to the system.
As always, your school district officials can best explain local data and how it applies to the district. Please take time to explore the NEP and learn how schools and students in your community are performing. I encourage parents to talk to the teachers of their students, and to local school officials, about the results and the needs of their students.
Thank you for your continued support of education in Nebraska.
