Francis Howell, Fort Zumwalt ‘school district report cards’ show excellence 

The Francis Howell and Fort Zumwalt school districts both have received excellent report cards this year. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education [DESE] released its 2017 Annual Performance Report [APR] data for school districts around the state. Francis Howell and Fort Zumwalt received identical scores, 99.3 percent. The Missouri School Improvement Plan [MSIP 5] is the state’s school accountability system for reviewing and accrediting public school districts in Missouri. The MSIP 5 is used to calculate APR scores.

The standard of MSIP 5 measures five areas: academic achievement, subgroup achievement, college and career readiness, attendance and graduation rate. MSIP 5 is used to distinguish the performance of schools and districts in valid, accurate and meaningful ways so that districts in need of improvement can receive appropriate support and interventions, and high-performing districts, like Fort Zumwalt and Francis Howell, can be recognized as models of excellence.
