Annual performance scores

The state assigns Annual Performance Report scores to each district based on a wide range of metrics including results from state standardized tests, student growth, attendance, graduation rates and whether students leave high school ready for college or careers. Scores above 70 are considered to be in the fully accredited range. A score between 50-70 falls in the provisionally accredited range, and scores below 50 fall the unaccredited range. Decisions on a district's accreditation status are determined by the state Board of Education.

Editor's note: The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education did not calculate APR scores for any school districts in 2019. See the about page for an explanation.
