DESE Releases 2017 Annual Performance Report Scores

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has released the 2017 Annual Performance Report (APR) data for school districts around the state. The Francis Howell School District received a score of 99.3 percent on the “school district report card” for the second consecutive year. The Missouri School Improvement Plan (MSIP 5) is the state’s school accountability system for reviewing and accrediting public school districts in Missouri, and is used to calculate APR scores.

Central Elementary students engaged in the classroom.The standard of MSIP 5 measures five areas: Academic Achievement, Subgroup Achievement, College and Career Readiness, Attendance, and Graduation Rate. MSIP 5 is used to distinguish the performance of schools and districts in valid, accurate and meaningful ways so that districts in need of improvement can receive appropriate support and interventions, and highperforming districts like FHSD can be recognized as models of excellence.

The APR also uses multiple years of data to provide an accurate evaluation of school districts and charter schools. “The 2017 APR score is not a snapshot, it represents high quality work in multiple categories over several years,” said Chief Academic Officer Nicole Whitesell. “We are certainly proud of our students and their teachers, and FHSD will always work to provide high quality instruction to ensure that our students graduate with the skills they need to be prepared for college and careers.”  

The comprehensive MSIP accountability system outlines the expectations for student achievement with the ultimate goal of each student graduating ready for success in college and careers. The APR is intended to promote continuous improvement and innovation within each school district in Missouri. The MSIP 5 Performance Standards are designed to recognize the achievement and continuous growth of ALL students as they prepare for success in a global economy.
