As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.

Missouri’s "Top 10 by 20" plan holds as a primary goal that all students will graduate high school college-and-career-ready. To measure progress toward this goal and to distinguish among school and district performance, the Missouri Department of Education computes an Annual Performance Report (APR) score for each Local Education Agency (LEA) and school. This overall score is comprised of scores for each of the MSIP 5 Performance Standards:
- Academic Achievement
- Subgroup Achievement
- High School Readiness (K-8 districts) or College and Career Readiness (K-12 districts)
- Attendance Rate
- Graduation Rate (K-12 districts).
Status, progress and growth (where applicable) are used to calculate a comprehensive score used to determine the accreditation level of a school district. Data for academic achievement (English language arts and mathematics), subgroup achievement (English language arts and mathematics) and graduation rate are also used for federal accountability determinations, including reward, focus and priority school identification, for LEAs and schools.
The Missouri School Improvement Plan (MSIP) 5 Performance Standards were approved by the State Board of Education in December 2011 and go into effect two (2) years from the date of approval. Missouri’s ESEA Flexibility Request was approved by the United States Department of Education in July 2012. The components used for federal accountability went into effect upon approval of the request.
|MSIP 5 Performance Comparison|
|MSIP 5 Standards||Possible Points||Points Earned||Percent Earned|
|College and Career Ready||30||25||83.3%|
