For the second straight year, Columbia School District has not been among districts receiving the “Distinction in Performance” award from Gov. Bob Holden.

The award is given to districts that have made consistent progress in improving academic performance based on Missouri Assessment Program scores.

“While our scores are high, they don’t reflect certain criteria for improvement,” said Chris Mallory, Columbia assistant superintendent. “Columbia’s MAP performance index is high compared to state or local scores.”

There will be 176 districts receiving the “Distinction in Performance” award, including Jefferson City, Fulton, Southern Boone and Boonville.
