Statewide Accreditation Report Summary

Accreditation reports dating back to 2015 were analyzed to determine key growth areas for public schools across Nebraska. A total of 244 reports were included in the data set. The recommendations underwent content analysis to
determine the presence of Nebraska Teacher and Principal Performance Standards (NTPPS) language, themes, and concepts given in the qualitative data. Each recommendation was classified into primary, secondary, and tertiary
themes from six content themes determined. The data has been categorized by overall prevalence from 2015-2021, by report year, and by the reporting district’s Educational Service Unit (ESU) region. Regional ESU data will be
provided in individualized reports.

S.E.E.D. Frequently Asked Questions – **Updated May 20, 2021**

In April of 2020, the Nebraska State Board of Education ( SBOE ) made a commitment to a common language of effectiveness for all Nebraska school teachers and leaders by approving revisions to the Nebraska Teacher and Principal Performance Standards ( NTPPS ). These standards provide a structure designed to address the complexities of teaching and leading.

The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) provides videos of conversations about the standards through the lens of a student, teacher, principal, Educational Service Unit, Higher Education Educator Preparation Program, and NDE.  Listen to Nebraska educators speak from their perspective about the standards, the support they offer teachers, and the alignment of work across the state educational system.  All videos are 14 to 16 minutes in length.  S.E.E.D. video links.
