MO School Improvement 5 (MSIP5)
Additional information on the calculation of the data for each standard may be found in the Guidance Document for the fifth version of the Missouri School Improvement program located at: http://www.dese.mo.gov/qs/documents/MSIP_5_APRcalculationsOctober30topost.pdf.
MSIP 4th Cycle
A student may take the Algebra I EOC multiple times to attain A+ scholarship eligibility. If the student has been assessed in a prior accountability year and is simply retesting for A+ eligibility, the district may submit a letter of appeal to have the additional scores(s) removed from accountability for the current year. Any time a district assesses a student on the state assessment, the results are included in the district’s data. It is up to the district to ensure that the appeal is filed during the current accountability year.
As has been the practice since 2006, the department will monitor the district’s Annual Performance Report for accreditation purposes. The district should continue to tailor the Resource Standards to meet the needs of the students in the district.
During the 4th cycle of the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP), the Department began utilizing performance as the main factor in determining a district’s classification level. The Department will continue to utilize performance measures as the main determinant for classification during MSIP 5. Resource and Process Standards will not be used to determine a district’s classification, but will be used to provide feedback to districts who may be in jeopardy of receiving a classification other than fully accredited.
