SSD Earns Missouri Quality Award

classroom continuous improvement exampleThe Excellence in Missouri Foundation has recognized SSD as a recipient of the Missouri Quality Award (MQA) for 2015.

The Missouri Quality Award program, modeled after the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, offers a thorough and objective educational process through which an organization can learn and apply quality implementation techniques and assessment methods.

A site team from the Excellence in Missouri Foundation visited SSD in September to learn more about the District’s continuous improvement efforts, and had the opportunity to speak with SSD staff at many sites throughout St. Louis County.

The objectives of the Missouri Quality Award are to promote an understanding of the requirements for performance, excellence, and continuous improvement, to stimulate sharing of improvement information on successful performance strategies and to share the benefits derived from using these strategies.

SSD is one of three Missouri Quality Award recipients for 2015. The other honorees are Park Hill School District in Kansas City, Missouri, and MidwayUSA in Columbia, Missouri.

Superintendent Don Bohannon credited SSD staff for their dedication to the District’s continuous improvement efforts, which support SSD’s vision of being a partner for every student’s success.

“This award belongs to all of our staff for their commitment to SSD’s mission and the work they do every day for the students we serve,” Bohannon said. “This is an important step in SSD’s continuous improvement journey.”
