Good ranking for Nevada charter schools

By February 20, 2013

In a recent report by the Center for Educational Reform, Nevada was ranked 19th in the United States for its charter schools and educational choices.

Nevada was positively cited for having new school leadership at the state level, coming improvements to teacher quality measures, growing online learning opportunities, and good access to school performance information on district websites. Nevada charter school laws were seen as more restrictive than other states. One of the criteria in which Nevada fell short is not having a private school choice.

There are numerous charter schools in Washoe County, with operating authority coming through the Washoe County School District and the Nevada Department of Education. The choices for parents and students include grades K through 12. Most charter schools where students physically attend offer a specific block of grades (i.e., K-8, 9-12). Some have a special emphasis, such as preparation for college or career training. A couple of online virtual schools have classes for K through 12.
