Two licensed resource pull-out sped teachers for k-5. If there isn't a "group" for kids to fit into, they MAY receive occasional consultation from a sped teacher in class, but not inclusive curriculum support. Some children are placed in self-contained room with severe/profound students (2 licensed sped teachers and 7 aides mostly assigned 1:1 with other students), because there is "nowhere else for them to go." Many IEPs state direct services when children are receiving consult or group services, or they are put to the side in pull out with worksheets to complete without direct assistance. Attention issues are addressed as learning disability and treated with pull-out remediation. My daughter was recently tested hi high probability for ADHD/distractibility and her IEP did not address the issue other than stated in present levels - no goals or accoms.

Math and science education are greatly undervalued here. The online program IXL appears to be the main math teaching tool. The science fair is poorly attended. First, second and third places are unassigned at the school level (district wide). Class work is the main componet of grades, homework is typically a reading log, and IXL log, disctict wide. Rebecca Sitton is used for spelling/lanugage arts. No formal Friday tests or practical spelling mastery lists are given to parents. I feel my 3 children are worse spellers because of the adoption of this school wide program. To get a pass to see the principal or other school official a student must go through their own teacher (what if a teacher is a perpetrator?) Overworked teachers run recesses. The lunch aides are the office secretaries. This school has at least 16 classrooms in portables. Spring Creek Elementary has a traditional school year. This is the only plus. Lesser experiences standout in the fifth and third grades. First grade has excellent professional teachers under the circumstances.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
