MSIP 6 - Preparing every child for success in school and in life


The latest iteration of the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP 6) is focused on continuous improvement for all schools, the preparation of each student for life beyond high school and promoting practices that lead to healthy school systems. MSIP 6 will take a closer look at what districts are doing to implement effective practices and sustain improvements, while increasing the focus on individual student growth. 

The Department believes high expectations, a clear vision and a few very focused, high impact goals will be critical to drive the improvement efforts necessary to bring about positive results.

The MSIP 6 Comprehensive Guide, which has been updated since May 2022, is available on the MSIP 6 webpage, along with the meeting times and locations. Contact with questions.
