Superintendent Dr. Jeanette Cowherd announced recently that the Park Hill School District received the Missouri Quality Award for the second time.
Park Hill was the first school district to earn this distinction when we received it in 2009, and we are now the only district in the history of this award to earn it twice.
The Missouri Quality Award recognizes an organization's commitment to meeting its customers' needs and to using the best-available processes for everything it does. This award is aligned with the exacting standards of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
Park Hill’s processes align with these standards, which the Excellence in Missouri Foundation determined by carefully reviewing our district application and conducting a thorough site visit of our schools.
The Missouri Quality Award demonstrates to the Park Hill community the world-class level of excellence that our schools are achieving.
It also comes with a detailed report from the site-visit team, which will identify both strengths and opportunities for improvement. As we did last time, Park Hill will take that report and use it in our continuous improvement efforts.
