A QuESTT for Nebraska

Since 1953, the State Board of Education, acting as a unit, shall be the policy-forming, planning, and evaluative body for the state school program (Neb. Rev. Stat. Section 79-301-(2)). Although the Nebraska Legislature has, over the past sixty years, set forth numerous duties for the State Board to act, it is still the responsibility of the State Board of Education to take each of those prescribed duties and set forth policy, planning and evaluation systems to ensure that Nebraska’s school program is the best it can be. Nebraska State Board Policy G19, Standards, Assessment, and Accountability (SAA) Belief Statements adopted in 2012 and most recently LB 438, The Quality Education and Accountability Act, frame the foundation for the Accountability for a Quality Education System, Today and Tomorrow: A QuESTT for Nebraska!
