The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education published the 2019 Annual Performance Reports (APR). Last year we received 100% on our APR. The APR is basically our annual “grade card” from the state. This report uses performance standards like MAP/EOC scores, graduation rates, attendance rates, ACT scores, etc. to determine accreditation and performance levels.
This year, the state has changed the way they provide results of the APR which means no overall percentage is assigned to school districts. However, what is shared are data points focused on growth to help us meet student needs.
We have great news to share again this year! Below is a summary of our 2019 APR results:
- English, math, and science achievement is HIGHER than the state average across the district. The social studies section was a field test and was not included for this reason.
- Student growth is EXCEEDING state expectations.
- The district is above STATE AVERAGE in the percentage of graduates who are college and career ready.
- The district’s attendance rate SURPASSES the state’s expectations.
