About This Tool

The Great Schools All Kids (GSAK) data portal is a great way to find the most recent school data all in one place. It is a community source to learn more about data that shows us how schools are doing. School data is provided by the Nevada Department of Education every September. The Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF) is a summary of public school performance. It’s like a report card for schools that also tells us about how students are performing in that school. You can use this portal to stay engaged with your local public schools, ask questions, and more.

Creating excellent public schools for all kids cannot be done alone.

All stakeholders must understand how school quality is measured and how schools are held accountable for student success. It is also essential to operate with a willingness to explore data, emerging trends, and other perspectives at the school and community levels to ensure positive outcomes for all students in all public schools.

The categories below are a start to the critical all hands-on-deck in public education, and how each of us will be accountable to all kids:

  • Families are critical partners in their child’s education – the growth and success of their child is a priority, they advocate for their child, and they seek to understand how they support their child’s success inside and outside the classroom.
  • Teachers foster the learning of all students, regardless of their unique backgrounds and needs. Teachers have an unwavering commitment to effectively engage all students, give them the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in college, career and life, and continuously improve year-after-year.
  • Principals establish a safe and inclusive school culture aligned to a vision for quality learning and growth of all students. Principals should also celebrate the success of excellent teachers and support the improvement of those who aren’t showing improvement towards student achievement.
  • The state and districts are accountable to providing resources and school-based support by aligning on goals, setting clear expectations, supporting the development of teachers and leading improvements to chronically low-performing schools to ultimately serve all students.

How To Use This Tool

When it comes to student success, families are a school’s #1 partner.

To be a fully engaged partner in public education, it is important to understand how school quality is measured and how schools are held accountable for the success of all students. With the Great Schools All Kids (GSAK) portal, families have easy access to information about how their neighborhood public schools are doing. The tool is also a resource for educators to better understand the state’s school performance information to be able to share the information with families and students. The Great Schools All Kids tool is available in English and Spanish, desktop and mobile, and uses the most recent data from the Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF).
