    The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education received a request for an accreditation review from the special board appointed to run St. Louis Public Schools.

    According to the state's Annual Performance Reports, the school district is making progress. The district has improved from meeting three of 14 performance standards in 2009 to seven this year, KSDK reports. The improvement puts the district in a provisionally accredited performance range.

    The state's Board of Education will consider the request at its October meeting.
