CCSD named a PREPS Involvement Award Winner

By Press Reports

Choctaw County School District has been recognized at the recent
statewide conference of Program of Research and Evaluation of Public
Schools (PREPS) for receiving an Involvement Award during the PREPS/
MAPE Conference, February 20-21, 2013, at the Hilton Hotel in
Jackson, MS.

PREPS is a private non-profit consortium of school districts whose
purpose is to develop and implement educational products and services
that help manage and support districts’ efforts to demonstrate
improvement in their instructional programs. PREPS is supported by
the College of Education at Mississippi State University and is
housed in the Center for Educational Partnerships, the service
division of the college. Collaboration among member districts enables
the districts to benefit from the development of products and
services that no single district is capable of developing alone.

The PREPS Involvement Award is given to school districts in
recognition of significant involvement in PREPS programs and
activities. The award recipients have had the highest percentage of
their teachers and administrators participate in PREPS-sponsored
professional development opportunities and other programs and
activities during the past year. This year the Choctaw County School
District was one of twenty-three recipients of the PREPS Involvement
Award.
