Comprehensive Support and Improvement

Walter V. Long STEAM Academy is a Rising Star School

 CSI Update #1 

Rising Stars Schools (also known as CSI schools) meet the designation criteria for Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) under Nevada’s federally approved Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Plan. The Rising Stars Schools list identifies schools eligible for supports and interventions. Rising Stars Schools also qualify for additional funding support through state and federal programs.

Rising Stars Schools meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Are in the lowest 5% of schools based on their Index Score on the Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF)

  • Received a 1-Star rating on the Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF)

Once a school is identified as a Rising Star School, it will remain a part of that cohort for three years, with the goal of achieving at least a 3-Star rating by the end of the third cohort year.
