State Public Charter School Authority (SPCSA)

Ano ang SPCSA at ano ang kanilang pananagutan? Itinuturing na isa sa mga distrito ng paaralan ng Nevada, ang SPCSA ay nagtataguyod at nangangasiwa sa mga pampublikong charter na paaralan. Ang Awtoridad ay binubuo ng pitong hinirang na miyembro na responsable sa pangangasiwa sa mga pamantayang pang-edukasyon at pagpapatakbo at pagpapanagot sa mga naka-sponsor na paaralan sa akademikong tagumpay ng mga mag-aaral.

Gaano kadalas nagpupulong ang Lupon ng SPCSA? Ang SPCSA ay karaniwang nagpupulong minsan sa isang buwan, karaniwan tuwing Biyernes.

Board Adopted 2022-23 Academic Performance Framework Ratings

Staff presented academic performance data for SPCSA schools. This is the first year star ratings have been released since the COVID-19 pandemic. Comparatively, SPCSA schools outperformed State schools in the number of three, four, and five-star schools:

  • 5-Star Schools: 43 schools (32%)
    • State: 85 schools, 11%
  • 4-Star Schools: 20 schools (15%)
    • State: 79 schools, 10%
  • 3-Star Schools: 35 schools (26%)
    • State: 179 schools, 24%
  • 2-Star Schools: 24 schools (18%)
    • State: 195 schools, 26%
  • 1-Star Schools: 12 schools (9%)
    • State: 223 schools, 29%

Generally, proficiency rates in English Language Arts (ELA), Math, and Science have decreased in recent years for SPCSA (but continue to outperform the State). Many students are not meeting grade-level proficiency expectations. Median growth was stagnant or increased slightly over 2021-2022, but the percentage of SPCSA schools meeting growth targets decreased. According to a memo distributed to District superintendents and the SPCSA by the Nevada Department of Education, 2022-23 school year growth data statewide was impacted by decreased participation in assessments and pandemic disruptions.

The SPCSA utilizes an Academic Performance Framework to rate school performance. This Framework is similar to the NSPF. The Framework rates schools Exceeds Standard, Meets Standard, Does Not Meet Standard, and Below Standard, based on a point scale (available in the presentation materials). For the 2022-23 school year, 75% of SPCSA schools were rated as meeting or exceeding standards; 21% of schools did not meet the standard, and 4% of schools bell below the standard.
