The COVID-19 Special Report attempts to provide essential context for understanding and interpreting 2021 NSCAS Results. By providing a brief overview of the history, response, and efforts to overcome the impacts of COVID-19 on Nebraska schools, the NDE hopes to provide important insights into the ongoing efforts of school renewal and acceleration. The NDE encourages anyone interested in reviewing 2021 NSCAS data to first read the context provided by the COVID-19 Special Report.
