While the average grade awarded during this evaluation was a “C+”, Rockwood was the only district in Missouri to receive an “A+.” This grade indicates the district met all 10 criteria regarding its accessibility of information pertaining to taxes, budgets, meetings, elected officials, administrative officials, contracts, audits, public records, academics and background checks.
