As Missouri moves towards the Missouri School Improvement Plan 6 (MSIP 6), and develops its plans for implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), it is refining and expanding its accountability framework. Under the revised framework, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will continue to publish data showing Local Education Agency, school, and subgroup performance across a range of performance indicators, using that data to inform districts’ accreditation classifications under MSIP and to identify schools that need support and improvement, as required by ESSA.
The state publishes lagging data, from the previous academic year or even earlier. Districts including St. Louis Public Schools and U. City Schools are using Schoolzilla’s data platform to get ahead of this. What tools will your district use to monitor progress against state indicators in real time, so you know you’re on track to meet state benchmarks?
If your district is interested in monitoring your district’s key performance indicators in real time, but is hoping for additional financial support to make it happen, this resource will give you some ideas for where to look.
