The Missouri School Improvement Program has the responsibility of reviewing and accrediting the 520 school districts in Missouri. The process of accrediting school districts is mandated by state law and by State Board of Education regulation.

Recommendations regarding accreditation status are presented to the State Board of Education for its approval. 

Staff members (including the eleven Area Supervisors) provide technical assistance on the MSIP process to district personnel individually and through training sessions.
