Raytown School District Selected as a Missouri Model District
Posted on 08/14/2017
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has selected the Raytown School District to participate in its Missouri Model District (MMD) Initiative. 

Raytown was one of only a handful of districts and the only school district in the ‘Large School District’ category to be selected from the Kansas City metro to contribute as an MMD statewide. The MMD Initiative was created in an effort to gather resources, promote best practices in education, and help teachers and administrators from around the state obtain the resources they need to contribute to the success of all students in the state of Missouri. 

The Raytown School District was selected as an MMD for the research-based teaching and learning practices and implementation in place. 

 “I think this is an excellent opportunity to share our best practices and also to showcase what we are doing in Raytown. This also allows us to learn from and collaborate with other Districts,” Dr. Janie Pyle, Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction said.

The three-year MMD initiative will lead to the creation of a valuable online resource center where Raytown and other model districts will contribute valuable information and best practices for collaboration, assessments, classroom instruction, and making data-driven decisions. The online resource center will also include professional development courses for teachers and administrators.

Year one of the initiative will the focus on determining what information each MMD will share and how teachers and administrators from around the state can access that information. 

 “The District’s selection as a Missouri Model District sets us apart as an example of the direction all school districts should go in for best and effective practices for teachers and students,” said, Dr. Janie Pyle, Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction. 

The Raytown School District will continue to contribute as an MMD through the entirety of the initiative.
