Failing grades jump at CCSD during distance learning


January 14, 2021

Clark County School District students received more failing grades during the fall semester of distance learning than in previous school years, according to district data posted ahead of an expected School Board vote Thursday on the possible reopening of some campuses.

The grade data, which cut across all age groups, was a factor in a recommendation to reopen schools to small groups of students for voluntary academic and socio-emotional supports, according to an online presentation on the agenda. Other factors shaping the district’s recommendation included reports of students and staff struggling with mental health issues during school closures and high COVID-19 positivity rates in Nevada.

The data show that 90.4 percent of comprehensive schools in the district assigned more F’s and 77.2 percent assigned more D’s in the fall semester of 2020 than in 2019. That mirrors a national trend of student achievement suffering during school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
