DESE releases performance reviews for Missouri schools

(KFVS) -

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released the first set of annual performance reports (APRs) for Missouri schools.

This is based on the state's newly revised accountability system.

The fifth version of the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP 5) was approved by the State Board of Education in 2011, giving schools two years to prepare for the new accountability requirements.

The annual performance reports show how well each public school and school district is meeting the state's education standards. The reports are used to review and accredit Missouri's school districts.

Every school and school district in the state is awarded points based on its performance in five areas:

  1. Academic achievement
  2. Subgroup achievement (includes minority students, students with limited proficiency in English, students with disabilities, students eligible for free and reduced-price lunches and students receiving special education services)
  3. College and career or high school readiness
  4. Attendance rate
  5. Graduation rate

Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) data results

Schools and districts receive a score based on the number of points earned out of the total number of points possible. A school district's overall score on multiple APRs is used to determine accreditation.

Accreditation levels:

  1. Accredited with distinction: 90 percent and above plus additional criteria set by the State Board
  2. Accredited: greater than or equal to 70 percent
  3. Provisional: 50 percent to 69.9 percent
  4. Unaccredited: 0 percent to 49.9 percent

The classification or reclassification of school districts based on MSIP 5 is not anticipated until 2015, according to DESE. Education officials say a three-year period is needed to show long-term, sustained performance trends for districts. The State Board also has the authority to change a district's accreditation at any time.

Christy Millweard will have a story on Heartland News at Five about one school that has scores that are more than a passing grade.
