Welcome Back Students and Faculty!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Results from the spring Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) tests are now available on our school website. Our students in grades 3 through 8 participated in grade level tests, while high school students were given end-of-course assessments. Map results show that a greater percent of our students scored proficient or higher in the areas of English Language Arts and Science. The district will focus in the areas of Math and Social Studies, where student proficiency was below the state average.

This 2015 assessment was the first year for new academic standards for English and Math. Also, for the first time assessments for grades 3-8 were administered online. The 2015 tests set a new baseline for student performance in Missouri and cannot be compared with the results from previous years as these are new tests with different learning expectations.

Our students and teachers have worked very hard to reach new, higher standards and to be prepared for the new format of the state assessment, and as always we are very proud of them! Assessment is one way we ensure that we are meeting your child's needs. We use assessments-at the classroom, school, district and state levels-to lead critical decisions concerning instruction, intervention, support and district policy.

Your may locate your students' MAP or EOC scores by using your secure login on the school website parent portal, located on the top toolbar on the home page. To view, click on the "Others" tab and then "Assessments." If you have questions regarding District assessments, please contact us at (417) 744-2623.

We are committed to ensuring that all children in our district are prepared for success, and we look forward to starting this new year! Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to teach your children each day, and for your continued support of our school!

Sincerely,

Cynthia G. Brandt
Superintendent of Schools
