Carthage Receives Missouri School Boards’ Association Outstanding Board of Education Award

The Carthage R-9 Board of Education was honored at the Missouri School Boards’ Association Annual Conference this past weekend, receiving the MSBA’s Outstanding Board of Education Award in the area of Teaching, Learning and Assessment.

According to MSBA, the Outstanding Board of Education program provides an opportunity to encourage effective board practices and recognize outstanding board performance. This is the first year awards were aligned to six specific categories of the Missouri Public Education Vision Project. Winners in their respective category were selected by a committee made up of school board members from districts throughout the state. There are 522 school districts in the state of Missouri and Carthage was one of three districts to receive an award in the area of Teaching, Learning and Assessment. Applicants were ranked based on the clarity of the district’s accomplishment, level of board responsibility and quality of evidence related to the following criteria:

1. Current comprehensive curriculum:
· alignment with Missouri standards
· alignment within and across grade levels and all subject areas in every school
· systematic review, evaluation and revision of curriculum

2. Strong instructional leadership and effective instruction:
· instructional practices based on evidence from a body of high quality research
· high expectations for all students
· systematic monitoring and review of instructional practices, leaders and teachers

3. Data-based decision making regarding instruction and programming:
· continuous collection and review of applicable and reliable data to make decisions regarding instructional programs and practices

4. Balanced and comprehensive system of student assessment:
· ongoing formative and benchmark assessments guide instructional practice, including individual remedial and enrichment requirements
· summative assessments occur at least annually to measure progress toward both subject mastery and student goals

5. Access to educational programming and resources:
· provide different student populations with access to educational programming and resources determined by their needs
· focus on closing achievement gaps by using data to adjust policies and practices and providing additional programs or supports

“These boards of education exemplify the characteristics of effective leadership teams,” says MSBA Executive Director Dr. Carter Ward. “The board members in each of these districts are to be congratulated for their dedication to the students in their district.”

Congratulations to our Board of Education:
Lee Elliff Pound – President
Michael Goolsby – Vice President
Justin Baucom – Secretary
Tony Diggs – Treasurer
Jeff Jones – Member
Elizabeth Streich – Member
Dr. Mark Westhoff – Member
