SLPS QUALIFIES FOR FULL ACCREDITATION
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) recently released the Annual Performance Reports (APR) for districts and individual schools through the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP) Cycle 5. Based on the data released by DESE, SLPS received 106.5 APR points, eclipsing the 98 points required to qualify for FULL ACCREDITATION. The District last qualified for FULL ACCREDITATION in the 2000 school year.
“I am exceedingly proud of the progress this school district, under the leadership of Dr. Kelvin Adams, has made,” said Special Administrative Board President Rick Sullivan. “Turning this district around from where it was 10—or even five—years ago has taken focus, determination, dedication and a willingness to change and think outside the box. While our magnet schools that traditionally perform well continue to improve, many of our neighborhood schools are also doing a stellar job, showing tremendous growth and becoming fully accredited this year.”
