Clark County Schools Hit Record Low For Federal Standards

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The nation’s fifth-largest school district has hit a new low under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Only 118 out of Clark County’s 285 schools met the law’s requirements during the previous academic year.

The federal standards for proficiency in math, reading and English have been raised each year.  But starting this school year, Nevada will grade schools based on student academic growth.

The plan to opt out of No Child Left Behind has been approved by the federal government.
