“The District has been focused for a number of years on being accredited with distinction, and we are only seven points away from our goal,” said Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent of schools. “The District does have areas that did not show growth, and schools are developing action improvement plans to address any decline noted in the data. We are always working toward continuous improvement, and we are proud of the hard work of our students and staff.”

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has not released individual school annual performance reports at this time.

Under the fifth version of the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP 5), Missouri public K-12 school districts are scored on five standards which are: academic achievement, subgroup achievement, college and career readiness, attendance, and graduation rate.

MSIP 5 is used to distinguish the performance of schools and districts in valid, accurate and meaningful ways so that districts in need of improvement can receive appropriate support and interventions, and high-performing districts can be recognized as models of excellence.

APRs are based on the performance standards and are reviewed for accreditation purposes at the district level. Status, progress, and growth, where applicable, are used to calculate a comprehensive score used to determine the accreditation level of a school district.
