The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and SuccessLink continue to collaborate to identify best practices and programs operating in Missouri’s public schools. These programs have a positive impact on students and/or teachers. Our goal is to share information on these practices with schools across the state.
This project identifies, recognizes, disseminates, and promotes exemplary and innovative practices which have been developed and successfully implemented in Missouri. Schools receiving the Proven Practices Award will serve as a resource for the state, and the practice is awarded a $2,000 honorarium.
- A Proven Practice must have been in place for at least two full years before the nomination date.
- The Proven Practice must show clear evidence of success in addressing the particular need specified by the practice.
- The Proven Practice must have capacity for replication to other districts and application or potential application to a wide audience.
- The Proven Practice must be aligned with the Missouri School Improvement Program Standards.
Due to funding cuts by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, SuccessLink is no longer able to offer this award.
