Accountability Data

The Mississippi Statewide Accountability System is a single “A” through “F” school and district accountability system. Click any chart to get detailed information on the measure.

i
COVID-19 pandemic disruptions continue to be reflected in 2021-2022 accountability data, particularly growth data. Growth calculations for some high school students required measuring growth from the 2018-2019 school year, and overall student performance on assessments improved since the first full year of pandemic-era schooling in 2020-2021. Additionally, students did not have to pass end-of-course high school assessments in 2020-2021, which affected the 2021-22 graduation rate.
