School districts in Missouri are evaluated every year to make sure they are meeting new standards set for them.

Schools are judged on five categories. They are academic achievement, 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), college and career or high school readiness, attendance rate and graduation rate.

Schools or school districts that score a 90 percent or above are categorized as "accredited with distinction." That is something school leaders across the Heartland say is one of the most important goals they set every year.

"This year's APRs allow us to see how schools are performing under the newest cycle of the Missouri School Improvement Program," said Commissioner of Education Chris L. Nicastro in a news release. "The new system sets the bar higher for education in Missouri and keeps our standards among the strongest in the nation."

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.
