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.

We enjoyed a very pleasant, dry, and sunny Saturday before the thunderstorms roll in Saturday night. Widespread thunderstorms will move into the area around 8pm Saturday night and will likely last until early Sunday morning. The rain will be moderate to heavy at times. Our biggest threats we are looking at are heavy rainfall, damaging winds, and hail. Wind gusts could reach up to 40-50 mph. A few scattered showers may linger through the morning on Sunday before clearing out. Temperatures will be cooler on Sunday with highs in the mid 50s. Temperatures will be on the cool side to start off next week with highs in the low 60s.
