The following is from the Raytown School Districts Website


The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has released Annual Performance Reports (APR) for all Missouri districts.  This is the first cycle of Missouri School Improvement Plan (MSIP) 5. The Raytown School District has received an 85% and is a fully accredited district, as the district was in the previous evaluation cycles.

Among the highlights of the APR for Raytown are gains in the ACT composite score, steady graduation and attendance rates, and a significant increase in science testing scores. 

“Our accreditation is evidence of a strong academic program with an emphasis on attendance and progress toward graduation,” Superintendent Dr. Allan Markley said. “Our staff and students are to be commended for the solid, steady performance we have shown.”

DESE monitors five areas to create the annual report: Academic Achievement, Subgroup Achievement, College and Career Readiness, Attendance, and Graduation Rate. 

To determine Academic Achievement points, DESE gives Status points, based on the district’s level of achievement over a three year period; Progress points, based on continuous year to year improvement; and Growth points, based on the district’s ability to move students into higher levels of achievement, which is the measure of individual student growth.  Subgroup Achievement addresses the same areas as Academic Achievement as it relates to state-identified subgroups. 

“While it is difficult to compare MSIP 5 to previous evaluation cycles,” Markley said, “we are pleased with the increases in our ACT scores and the consistency of our Subgroup Achievement.”

Included in College and Career Readiness measures are the percent of graduates scoring at or above the state standard on ACT, SAT, Compass, and Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery tests; the percent of graduates earning qualifying scores on AP, IB or Technical Skills Attainment tests or qualifying grades in AP, IB, early college, or dual (college) enrollment courses; and the percent of graduates who attend post-secondary training, are in the military, or who complete an approved Career Education program and are placed in an occupation related to their training.

“I am proud of our solid academics,” Associate Superintendent Dr. Janie Pyle said.  “We earned our initial scores after extensive curriculum revision, increased those scores, and now have maintained them.”

The full APR can be viewed on the DESE website at dese.mo.gov and was made public on August 23, 2013.  Districts may complete an appeal process if they believe data or scores have been calculated in error.
