MQA logoSSD Earns Its Second
Missouri Quality Award

The Midwest Excellence Institute has recognized Special School District of St. Louis County as a recipient of the Missouri Quality Award (MQA) for 2019.

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. The District received its first MQA in 2015.

The District submitted a lengthy MQA application to the Institute in the spring, which was followed by a site team visit in September. During the visit, team members had opportunities to speak with SSD staff at many sites throughout St. Louis County to learn more about the SSD’s continuous improvement efforts.

In addition to the award, the District also will receive the site team’s feedback report, which will outline areas in which the team feels the District is doing well and areas in which the District has opportunities for improvement.

Superintendent Elizabeth Keenan said continuous improvement is a way of life at SSD.

“This award belongs to all of our staff for their commitment to continuously improving so that students are successful,” Keenan said.

SSD provides special education services for all St. Louis County students with disabilities, as well as career technical education at SSD’s two technical high schools for area high school students.
