(KTVI)- There’s a major concern this morning for several St. Louis area school districts. New state figures released overnight show several districts could be facing questions of accreditation in the future.
The figures are from the Annual Missouri School Improvement program. And they don’t bode well for St. Louis City Schools.
In fact, out of a possible score of 100 percent, city school only scored 24.6 — second worst in the state. This year, the state is using tougher standards to reach these figures. City Superintendent Kelvin Adams say the overall battery of tests, some schools like Vashon High School got a zero.
If decisions were made based only on these figures from the past year, City schools could once again lose accreditation.
But the figures were problematic for many other districts as well. Several districts in out-state Missouri could be on the verge of losing accreditation based on these numbers and several local districts like Ferguson-Florissant, Jennings and University City would be close to losing accreditation.
