The Department has created a listserv for public school teachers.  By signing up for our listserv, you will receive emails about policies, certification information, Department initiatives and news affecting education in the state.

Teachers and Administrators – Your Successes are Needed!
Teachers: We would like you to share your success stories about a particular student, class project or teaching strategy that has worked well in your classroom.

Administrators: If you have an outstanding teacher, school policy or program that has made your school a better place or improved educational opportunities for your students, we want to know about it!

Your stories or ideas could be used in one of our upcoming Top 10 by 20 UPDATEs, Missouri Learning Standards newsletters or on our website. The success stories should promote public education and be tied to one of the main Top 10 by 20 goals.
