Accountability results released today by the Mississippi Department of Education give the Neshoba County School District a "successful" or "C" performance classification while the Philadelphia School District received an "academic watch" or "D" classification.

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.
