The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has released the 2018 Annual Performance Report (APR) data for school districts around the state. This year FHSD received a score of 100 percent on the “school district report card,” after receiving a 99.3 percent for the past two years. 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.

The APR uses multiple years of data to provide an accurate evaluation of school districts and charter schools. “We are extremely proud and excited about earning 100 percent on the APR,” said Chief Academic Officer Dr. Nathan Hoven. “This result highlights the hard work of our students, teachers, and principals as they strive for excellence on a daily basis. As a District, we are committed to providing our students with the best experience to prepare them for success in life, college, and careers.”

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 school districts in valid, accurate, and meaningful ways. With this evaluation data, districts in need of improvement can receive appropriate support and interventions, and high‐performing districts like FHSD can be recognized as models of excellence.

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.
