The Raymore-Peculiar School District has achieved a 98.7 percent score on its Annual Performance Report (APR) from the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
The 2018 report includes student achievement data, graduation rates, attendance rates, and college and career readiness indicators. The report measures how well the District serves students under specific state guidelines and is used to determine a school district's accreditation.
The District received 118.4 out of 120 total points possible on the APR.
"We are proud the accomplishments of our students are recognized on the APR," said Superintendent Dr. Kari Monsees. "Our teachers, administrators and support staff work hard every day to ensure our students are success ready. We have plenty of measures of success locally, but it is good to receive confirmation from the state that we are doing well as a district."
