For the first time the North Platte R-1 School District has received a 100 percent score for its annual state performance review. The score is determined by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education with the rating system based on students’ state mandated test scores, graduation rates, ACT scores and college dual credit completion.

North Platte Superintendent Karl Matt attributes district success to the hard work of its teachers and the support of the community.

“We try to have good communication with the parents. We try to look at each student, what their needs are and what we can do as a staff to try to address and meet those needs. We think that’s what has allowed us to be successful,” Matt said.

North Platte was the only district in the Kansas City Interscholastic Conference to receive a perfect score from the state.
