Last month, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released a working draft of the new Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP) 5 Annual Performance Report (APR) for school districts. MSIP is the system used by DESE to classify the performance of school districts.
MSIP 5 is slated to go into effect later this year. Once the new system is in place, districts will be classified based on the percentage of points they score on a 140-point system, instead of the number of points they score on a 14-point system.
School districts that earn 90% and above of the points on the MSIP 5 scale will be “Accredited with Distinction”
School districts that earn 70%-89.9% will be “Accredited”
School districts that earn 50% to 69.9% will be “Provisionally Accredited”
School districts that earn 0%-49.9% will be “Unaccredited”
