Standards & Assessments

The Nevada Academic Content Standards

In 2010, Nevada adopted the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. Upon adoption, the standards became known as the Nevada Academic Content Standards (NACS). The standards are a set of expectations and guidelines for what students should know and be able to do in order to graduate high school and be prepared for college or for a career. 

Teachers use the standards to design lessons and assessments of student learning. It is important for parents and families to understand what the standards are in order to know how to help students be successful.
