SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -
More “Star” schools shine on latest Mississippi report card
The 2011 Accountability Results show more Mississippi schools reaching “Star” status, and fewer that are “Failing.”
Every school district in Mississippi wants to be a “Star”, which is the highest rating. To earn that, each has to score at least 200 on the Quality Distribution Index. The QDI looks at several factors, like the latest state test scores, graduation rates, and drop-out numbers.
Based on the preliminary results, four districts in the state made the grade. At the head of the class is the Pass Christian School District. It ranks number one in the state for the third year in a row. Pass Christian is also the only school district in Mississippi with all four of its schools making “Star” status.
