Every school district in the state of Missouri is evaluated on an ongoing basis by the MO Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in order to establish accreditation.
The now-current 5th cycle of The Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP 5) was implemented across the state beginning in 2012-2013. In conjunction with MSIP 5, districts and schools are issued an Annual Performance Report (APR) annually which provides information about levels of attainment for each of 5 Performance Standards. APR for districts and schools can be viewed on the Missouri Comprehensive Data System website.
