CARSON CITY — Gov. Brian Sandoval wants to fund a measurement tool that will not only evaluate student performance but teachers as well.
The Republican governor, in a Sept. 13 letter to state Sen. Barbara Cegavske, R-Las Vegas, the chairwoman of Nevada’s P-16 Advisory Council, said he supports the group’s recommendations for moving forward with the statewide longitudinal data system, which collects and analyzes student data from preschool to high school, college and the workforce.
He added that he will submit a budget appropriation bill during the upcoming legislative session for the development of SLDS, but whether the state can fund this initiative is unclear.
