Star Ratings

October 20, 2020

Dear Southwest Las Vegas families,

The State of Nevada uses the Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF), a five-star classification system for public schools that assesses student learning progress, school quality, instructional practices, and is helpful to parents in informing school selection.

During a typical year, NSPF includes the Nevada Report Card which provides State, district, and school-level reporting data to the public in a user-friendly format.

This year, as a result of the U.S. Department of Education COVID-19 waiver, NSPF Star Ratings and other assessment data are either not applicable, or have been carried over from the prior year. Report cards are essential tools for transparency and communication. The current crisis has heightened the importance of getting timely and comprehensive information into the hands of families, communities, and education leaders.

We invite you to review the 2019-2020 School Accountability Report Card for the Southwest Las Vegas campus. School ratings will be reported in fall 2021.

It is vitally important that as parents, you continue to help your child succeed at Legacy by minimizing their absences and staying in regular communication with his or her teacher(s). If there are subjects or homework that your child is struggling with, please reach out to their teacher. Your child’s teacher(s) will be able to share strategies that you can leverage at home, or recommend your child receive additional tutoring support.
