CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Less than one-fifth of Nevada schools got top grades in a new report released by the Department of Education.

The Nevada School Performance Framework report ranks schools based on such things as student achievement, progress, graduation rates, and attendance.

Schools are given a star rating, with five stars being the highest and one star the lowest.

Of the 593 schools rated statewide, 112 - or 19 percent - received five stars.

The bulk of schools, 271 - or 46 percent - were given three stars, and 19 schools received one star.

Results were based on the 2011-2012 academic year.

But state officials say the report shows the number of five-star achievers rose 9 percentage points from the prior year, which was used to set a benchmark on which to grade progress.
