2021-22 APR Scores Released

Posted Date: 03/07/2023

March 7, 2023


Today, Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released the latest scores for school districts across the state in what is called the Annual Performance Report (APR). We’d like to explain what these results are and what they mean for our district.

What is the APR?

Missouri’s DESE has an accountability model for school districts called the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP). To score districts on their performance and improvement, DESE uses an APR. The 2022 APR is based on the most recent MSIP standards which is now in its sixth version.

How is this score different from previous years?

There are a few notable differences between MSIP 6 model and the previous accountability models. A few of the differences are listed below:

  • This is the pilot year for scoring schools based on alignment to the standards in MSIP 6.
  • This model, for the first time, differentiates the overall performance of public schools and places districts along a continuum, or ranking.
  • The scoring of academic achievement is different with MSIP 6 noting a significant emphasis on Growth.

In 2018 nearly every district in Missouri earned 90% of the points possible. In order to differentiate among districts, the 2022 MSIP 6 scoring system is much more rigorous, making the earning of points harder. The target for districts is to now earn at least 70% of the points possible. Our district earned a score of 78.4% (141.2 out of 180 possible points).

Impact on Schools MSIP 5 vs MSIP 6 Scoring Changed

It’s important to note that the data contained in the APR are from the spring of 2022. While these data have just recently been packaged and released to the public, our school district has had access to certain pieces of it since the start of this school year. Therefore, we’ve already implemented action steps to address the needs of our students and continue to do so on a regular basis. 

Below, we’d like to share some celebrations and opportunities for improvement we’ve drawn out of our APR score.


  • Academic Achievement in Social Studies
  • Advanced Credit Options for Students
  • Graduate Follow-up
  • District Continuous Improvement Efforts (i.e. Strategic Plan)

Opportunities for Improvement

  • Academic Growth in English Language Arts
  • College and Career Readiness Assessments

We plan to celebrate these wins with our staff, while we create action steps to improve our school district based on the results of this report. As always, we continue to pursue educational excellence for our students and appreciate the support of our community.
