These standards measure most areas of the educational process and meeting all 14 confirms the commitment and dedication of our teachers, support staff, administrators, and students year after year. Our challenge, as always, is to continue moving forward.

Principals will continue working with staff to review and revise Building Improvement Plans that directly address student achievement.

Using the most recent assessment data, continuous planning will include revisions in curriculum, professional development, instructional strategies, etc.

I encourage everyone to work with your principals and be active participants in this improvement process.

Congratulations to the entire staff are in order because our district, for the sixth consecutive year, met 100% of Missouri’s performance standards.
