The Search for... is an interactive feature that allows you to access, display, and print a variety of information for the state or for a selected school or school district in Mississippi. Student assessment data are available beginning with school year 1998/1999, accountability results are available beginning with 2003/2004, and NCLB Report Cards are available beginning with 2004/2005. This is an excellent tool when you are looking for an overall picture of an individual school or district.
