Lee’s Summit R-7 School District earns state’s top ranking through MSIP 5 accountability system

District-wide scores jump by 5.7 percentage points when compared to three years ago

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District has earned the state’s top rating for academic achievement following the Nov. 15 release of Missouri assessment scores. The district scored 98.2 percent on the state’s rigorous Annual Performance Report (APR) for the 2016-17 school year, an increase of 5.7 percentage points over the past three years.

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education annually issues a state report card for public schools through the Missouri School Improvement Program. This assessment system, established in 1990, is now in its fifth cycle and is often called MSIP 5. Performance standards used through MSIP 5 are designed to recognize the achievement and growth of all Missouri students.

The Annual Performance Report reflects the high level of instructional effectiveness taking place in our schools,” said Dr. Dennis L. Carpenter, superintendent. “This is reflective of the quality of teachers and students we get to work with in our district. As we look to the future, this data also points to our greatest opportunity and that is ensuring that each student in our district participates in the level of academic achievement that has become synonymous with Lee’s Summit R-7.”

Through the 2016-17 MSIP 5, Lee’s Summit R-7 scored 137.5 out of a possible 140 points. This is an increase over the 2015-16 year.

Since the 2013-14 school year, Lee’s Summit R-7’s score on the Annual Performance Report has increased by 5.7 percentage points. Percentages over the last four years are 92.5 in 2013-14, 96.8 in 2014-15, 97.9 in 2015-16, and 98.2 in 2016-17.

The MSIP 5 Annual Performance Report includes five major standards — academic achievement, subgroup achievement, college and career readiness, attendance rates and graduation rates. Lee’s Summit R-7 students scored well in all five categories.
