Annual Performance Report
The Missouri Standards for the Preparation of Educators (MoSPE) outlines the expectations for programs that are preparing educators for certification in Missouri. In order to ensure that programs are meeting these expectations, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) established an Annual Performance Report for Educator Preparation Programs (APR-EPP) to measure the performance of educator preparation programs (EPPs) in valid, accurate and meaningful ways. The APR-EPP is based on the Missouri standards and provides a mechanism by which to review and approve EPPs at the certification area level. Information provided through these reports will assist in recognizing high-performing programs as models of excellence based on a set of standards and indicators. Likewise, the reports will facilitate identification of programs in need of improvement so they can receive appropriate support. These standards will guide Missouri’s continuous improvement efforts as we work together to reach our goal of preparing, developing and supporting effective educators. DESE expresses its appreciation to all who continue to contribute to the process.
