Partnerships

Several dedicated community partners enable us to provide an exceptional educational experience to students and their families who would likely not otherwise receive it. The investments of these partners are deeply appreciated. They provide us with programming, services, and material resources that make a key difference in the lives of our students.

Mizzou

The University of Missouri-Columbia serves as the charter school sponsor for La Salle Middle School. Charter school sponsorship is one of the many college efforts to support quality education to all children in Missouri's schools, whether public, private or parochial. The College of Education at Mizzou sponsors two charters in Kansas City and four in St. Louis. The schools sponsored vary from individual elementary schools to those with multiple campuses, enrolling nearly 6,000 students in 12 buildings.

As a charter school sponsor, Mizzou is charged by the state with three tasks:

  1. Evaluate and approve charter school applications.
  2. Monitor school compliance with state and federal regulations and meeting charter goals.
  3. Renew or revoke school charters based on performance.

The office monitors schools through a variety of activities to ensure an understanding of operations beyond what is evident in reports and school data. Mizzou provides technical assistance and connections to resources.
