Rock County Public Schools will provide its students with positive educational experiences that instill life-long learning skills to nurture responsible, contributing citizens.
School Improvement Goal
All Rock County Public Schools’ students will improve writing performance across the curriculum.
Changes coming to NeSA (Nebraska State Assessments)
•Assessments will be more complex
•Writing will no longer be tested separately, written responses will be required in all tests
•Score comparisons will be difficult to make with NDE changing the test format
•Parents should expect that student scores could be lower than previous years since we are now establishing new base scores using the new tests
•Assessments are geared to prepare our students for college and careers
•RCPS teachers are aware of changes
•We are working to prepare our students for these changes by attending conferences and trainings
