Messages of Celebration

Nebraska Department of Education

Schools are classified as: Excellent, Great, Good, or Needs Improvement. Classification is one way that Nebraska provides information about how each school and district is serving its students. Classification is determined by adjusting a school or district’s beginning status by certain factors and also considering limitations placed on how an adjustment may be earned. Classification is not based solely on test scores. They are based on multiple measures of student success, including graduation rates, progress for English Learners, reduction in chronic absenteeism, and other measures of school quality and student success. Many stakeholders provided input on the selection of these indicators through the AQuESTT and ESSA planning processes and we look forward to continued engagement with a wide variety of stakeholders throughout implementation.

Harrison Street Traffic Awareness @ Dismissal

If you are able to adjust your route to utilize our neighborhood streets at dismissal or increase your awareness to not sit in line on Harrison, we would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance for your understanding and flexibility. We know traffic flow is difficult with such large enrollment at Wheeler and the size of our parking lot/property.
