Ferguson-Florissant, Hazelwood Remain Accredited School Districts
Each district met nine of the required 14 standards by the state for the past year.
With the release of the 2012 MAP data Tuesday, it looks like both Florissant school districts remain accredited.
Ferguson-Florissant and Hazelwood school districts each met nine of 14 standards, which is required by the state to be accredited.
According to the Missouri Department of Education, the minimum of nine standards must be met in order to achieve full accreditation.
“Although we have always maintained full accreditation, this is the first time in a decade we have earned the required nine (9) standards for full accreditation, back-to-back (2011 and 2012),” Ferguson-Florissant Superintendent Art McCoy wrote in his back to school letter. “We have made history and we should be very proud of our excellent work, our students, and our district.”
The Hazelwood School District said it would be focusing on a plan to raise academic standards.
