A bill that would require the Nebraska Board of Education to create an accountability system for individual public schools is set for a legislative hearing.

The Legislature's Education Committee will convene Tuesday to
hear testimony on the measure (LB870) by York Sen. Greg Adams.

The proposal would require the state board to measure graduation
rates, student performance on statewide tests and other indicators.
The State Department of Education would be required to report
individual school performance annually.
