Independence School District Shows Significant Growth on Annual Performance Report

Posted February 1, 2019

The Independence School District is proud to announce significant growth on the Annual Performance Report. The ISD scored 117 out of 120 points for 97.5 percent.  That is an increase of nearly 25 percent in five years.

ISD Superintendent Dr. Dale Herl commented on ISD’s academic achievement, “Our students continue to improve academically year after year. I am extremely proud of the hard work of our staff and students. Our APR score of 97.5 percent is the highest in district history and highlights the focus on rigor and relevance in our classrooms.”

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released the data. The Annual Performance Report combines MAP scores with five performance standards (academic achievement, attendance, college and career readiness, graduation rate and subgroup achievement) to show how districts are meeting state standards.
