Performance Improvement

Abstract In 2005, the Jenks Public Schools (JPS) in Oklahoma became one of only seven organizations to win the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for education since the category was instituted in 2001. Its data revealed that JPS was already ranked among the best in the state, so to ensure continuous improvement, the district bypassed state quality awards and implemented Baldrige criteria in an effort to win national recognition. JPS’ efforts made it one of two recipients of the Baldrige Award for education in 2005, but more significantly, it made it on its first try.
