For the first time, parents can get a report card on every school in the state. They can be found in the first comprehensive Missouri Public School Accountability Report. The State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has compiled the results, which cover such things as dropout rates, achievement test results, disciplinary actions, ethnic breakouts and average teacher salaries, tax rates, and expenditures per pupil. State Education Commissioner Kent King hopes parents will go the department Web page and look at the results from the buildings. King says it’s important parents know the records at the school so they can be involved in improving their children’s education. King says the first of the annual statewide report cards will be more important in the future because it establishes a base line against which later results can be compared.
