Stockton R-1 Annual Progress Report Released

by Shannon Snow

The 2018 Annual Performance Report (APR) for all Missouri school districts was made public on February 1st, by The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). A district’s APR is a measurement of how the district is performing based on data collected by DESE in five main categories; Academic Achievement, Subgroup Achievement, College and Career Readiness, Attendance, and Graduation Rate.

On the 2018 Annual Progress Report (APR), the Stockton R-1 School District scored 117.5 out of 120 points possible, for a total of 97.9 percent of the total possible points.

Stockton scored 40 out of 40 Academic points and 10 out of 10 Academic points for subgroups, giving the district a perfect score on academic achievement for the first time ever!

Stockton also received 10 out of 10 points for attendance and 30 out of 30 points for graduation rate. The only points that Stockton did not receive, however, was in the area of College and Career readiness. We missed 2.5 points in the area of advanced placement courses, because of low numbers of dual credit enrollment in 2017. The good news is that dual credit enrollment is back up in 2018, and we expect to earn all of those points in 2019!

As you can see from our APR history, Stockton R-1 has a strong tradition of achievement. It is easy to see why “It is good to be a Tiger!”
