The Annual Performance Report (APR) uses multiple measures and several years of data to provide an accurate and meaningful look at districts. DESE uses APR scores to determine how well schools are meeting Missouri's education standards under the state's accountability system, the Missouri School Improvement Program 5 (MSIP5). Schools that score above 90% are within the accredited with distinction category. Missouri’s rating system is based on a number of factors including academic achievement (school status, student progress and student growth), subgroup achievement and attendance rate. With an APR score of 97.1%, Conn-West Scored within the accredited with distinction category.
