NIFDI Research Department Evaluates Impressive Academic Gains in NE Nebraska
Students at Schuyler Elementary, a school in Eastern Nebraska with a large Hispanic population, have demonstrated incredible improvements in academic achievement over the past few years. In 2009-10, less than half (44%) of Schuyler’s third graders met the state standards as measured by the Nebraska State Assessment (NeSA), and only three students exceeded the state standards. Last year, 2010-11, 67%, of Schuyler’s third graders achieved passing scores, with eight percent of the students exceeding the state standards.
