The State Board of Education expressed its unanimous support for the fifth cycle of the Missouri School Improvement Plan at their June meeting. Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro says with that came a new scoring guide for school district’s annual performance report. A one-year pilot of Missouri’s new educator evaluation was also approved. The pilot will be tested in the 2012/2013 school year.
