MDE releases school accountability results

The Mississippi Department of Education has released the 2012 School Accountability results.

District-wide, Hazlehurst City Schools graded out as a ‘D’, or ‘Academic Watch’.  Hazlehurst High School earned a ‘C’, or ‘Successful’.  Hazlehurst Middle School was given a ‘D’.

Copiah County Schools earned a ‘C’ at the District level.  Crystal Springs High School was given a ‘D’, while CS Middle is considered ‘Low Performing’ with an ‘F’.  Wesson Attendance Center, which encompasses an elementary, a middle and a high school, earned the highest mark locally with a ‘B’, or ‘High Performing.’

The accountability model measures student performance on more rigorous curriculum and assessments.

Schools and districts received performance classification letter grades of “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” and “F.”

The new performance classification labels replaced the formerly used labels of Star, High Performing, Successful, Academic Watch, Low Performing, At-Risk of Failing and Failing.
