Accountability of Quality Education System for Today and Tomorrow:

The Nebraska State Board Policy G19, Standards, LB 438, The Quality Education and Accountability Act, has framed the foundation for Nebraska’s newly adopted accountability system. The Board believes that building a system that supports every student, every day is far more than the minimums required by law.
The Board sets out to establish not only a vision for accountability but a vision for a Quality education system for generations to come. The Board believes that the people of Nebraska — through their Constitution, the Nebraska Legislature, the State Board of Education, the Commissioner of Education and policy makers — are responsible for the total design of this Education System.

The Nebraska State Board believes that the opportunity to integrate components of accountability, assessment, accreditation, career education, and data into a system of school improvement and support is imperative for the good of Nebraska students and for the state to have a vibrant and economically successful future.
