All Missouri schools exceed standards for provisional accreditation

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - For the first time in recent memory, all of Missouri's schools are hitting the mark. You can call this a report card from the.

The annual performance report from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education comes up with a score on a scale of 100 that considers academic performance along with attendance, college readiness, and graduation rates.

The performance report covers more than 500 school districts and dozens of charter school agencies.

And this year—for the first time in quite some years—it shows every district in the state is doing well enough to at least be provisionally accredited.

Saint Louis Public Schools have been provisionally accredited since 2013. The school performed well for the second year in a row, but because last year's tests are different than this year's, the scores are hard to consider.

The Normandy and River Gardens school districts, the only two unaccredited districts in the state, earned 54.6 and 74.6 percent of the possible points in the report. The state's board of education requires districts to earn at least 70 percent of overall points to be considered for full accreditation and 50 for provisional accreditation.
