More Assessment Success at PCS

By Deborah Niss Assessment Coordinator

 

Each year, Nebraska students in grade three through eight and eleven take Nebraska State Assessments (NeSA) in the areas of science, math, writing, and language arts. Results are posted on the Nebraska Education Profile website (http:// nep.education.ne.gov/). Scoring categories for NeSA testing are Not Met, Met, and Exceeds. This year’s testing window opens March 20th, 2017. A major change this year is eleventh grade students will now take the ACT as their state assessment. Another change is students will not take the NeSA writing test, because writing will be embedded in the content area tests. Between basketball games January 27th, 52 Pawnee City students who performed exceptionally well on their 2016 NeSA tests were honored.

'Tis the season to pay your taxes

By Ray Kappel

 

If you are a volunteer firefighter, or emergency personnel, you will get a tax credit of $250 on next year’s taxes. That’s not this tax season, but the next one.

That was one of the tidbits to come out of an interview with Deb Swanson, who runs H & R Block in Tecumseh.

The filing season opened Jan. 23 and it will close April 18, on a Tuesday. The regular Monday deadline was moved to Tuesday for Emancipation Day, celebrated April 17 in Washington, D.C.

There is something new to the tax season this year. Refunds will be delayed until as late as Feb. 27 because of PATH (Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes) Act. This Act requires the IRS to hold refunds for Earned Income Tax Credit and Additional Child Tax Credit.

New 911 program for Pawnee County

By Ann Wickett

 

The Vesta 911 and Orion VELA mapping program went live at the dispatch office of the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday, January 25. According to Amanda Burki, administrative assistant, this is a much needed upgrade to Johnson and Pawnee County’s 911 system. With the Vesta 911 system, the program server is located in Lincoln and serves all of the counties in southeast Nebraska including Otoe, Cass, Nemaha, Richardson, Pawnee Gage and Johnson County. Before, they could only see mapping systems for Johnson and Pawnee Counties. Dispatchers at the Johnson County Sheriff’s office can also see mapping configurations from the city of Lincoln and Lancaster County depending on which tower receives the 911 call.
