Comparing District Achievement to Improve Decision Making in Clark County, Nevada

AIR, a subcontractor on this project, was responsible for identifying three districts—Broward County, Florida; Miami; and Houston—with similar demographics and financial circumstances and comparing their student achievement to Clark County’s. The AIR analysis identified the factors contributing to the disparity between the achievements of those districts and of Clark County. AIR staff also analyzed the districts’ student achievement data to isolate areas that need improvement.
