Profiles of Missouri Public Schools: Financial, Pupil and Staff Data for Fiscal Year 2002-2003
Missouri State Department of Education
Annually the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education collects from school districts a variety of data which are used for program approval, allocation of state and federal funds, and classification purposes. Many of these data are summarized in various state-level reports such as those found in the annual ''Report of the Public Schools.'' In order to increase the usefulness of these statistics for school boards and administrators, the Department has developed the ''School Profile Reports.'' These reports are provided annually to all school districts in the state. This booklet contains a set of twenty State Profiles. The State Profiles portray the same data as the District profiles in five categories. Administrators may compare local district statistics with state statistics in the following categories: (1) State averages; (2) High School or Elementary District averages; (3) Four Classification categories--Accredited, Provisionally Accredited, Unaccredited or Not Reviewed; (4) Five Size categories measured in terms of fall enrollment; and (5) Four Wealth categories measured by ranges of equalized assessed valuation per EP.
