ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — Fewer Mississippi districts are labeled failing. More are labeled successful or better.

That is a three-year trend, reflected in unofficial data released yesterday by the state Department of Education. The Clarion-Ledger reports the labels for all of the state’s schools and districts will become official Friday pending a vote by the state Board of Education.

In 2009, 61 districts were labeled successful or better. That number rose to 78 in 2010. Now, 82 districts are successful, high performing or stars, based on student performance on state standardized tests. For high schools, the labels also factor in graduation rates and the number of students who completed high school in other ways.
