Lawmakers hear bill to change quality assessment of public schools
JEFFERSON CITY - A new bill could change the way Missouri public schools assess school quality.
Lawmakers will hear a bill Wednesday that specifies quality indicators that would be used to classify Missouri public schools. The bill would require school district administrators to develop a plan to achieve quality indicators. The plan would then need approval from the school board.
The quality indicators listed in the bill include:
- Programs and services that help students come ready to learn
- High expectations and standards
- Rigorous and comprehensive curricula for all students
- Quality conditions for teaching and learning
- Qualified staff
- Shared responsibility for school oversight at all levels
- Parental and community involvement
- Fair and efficient use of sources
