Nevada Lawmakers Frustrated Over Education Database

Posted: Updated:

Nevada lawmakers are expressing frustration over the slow pace of developing a statewide database to track student achievement, an effort that's been decades in the making and has cost millions of dollars.

During a joint meeting Thursday of a legislative subcommittee, Democratic Sen. Debbie Smith of Sparks quipped that she hopes she lives long enough to see the results of the roughly $42 million the state has invested over the years.

The Department of Education is requesting $4 million to build a data base to allow tracking of student achievement from kindergarten through higher education and into the workforce.

State Superintendent James Guthrie told the panel Nevada has made a good start on the system and the Department of Education hopes to bring it to fruition fast.  (AP)
