State Resource Technical Report
Published: June 29, 2012
This report contains a number of tables comprised of aggregate data for students who attended Nebraska accredited public schools, including special purpose schools, between the dates of July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011 and were identified as state wards. According to the State Ward Education Snapshot Agreement, the purpose of this project is to provide information to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in support of their effort "to evaluate the effectiveness of Nebraska's K-12 public school system as it relates to the education of state wards." There are two major sections contained in this report required by the State Ward Education Snapshot Agreement. The first section, "Education-Related Data", contains information comparing the state ward population to the non-state ward population for Nebraska students. The second section, "Education-Related Data Broken Down into Descriptive Sub Categories", expands on the "Education-Related Data" found in the first section by evaluating the state ward population by a number of descriptive categories.
