(See Photo: from left to right - Asst. Principal Chip Mercurio, Board of Education Chair Tom Raffio, SAU 87 interim Superintendent Dr. Betsey Cox-Buteau, and Principal Tom Starratt). On Monday August 20th, the 25th anniversary of the Baldrige Program, the GSQC held a Recognition and Sharing Event to congratulate and learn from BMS as well as thank and recognize our volunteer examiners and judges who make our program possible.
The Achievement of Excellence is the highest level of recognition in the 2012 GSQC Awards and Recognition Program (see press release for details). In an interactive presentation, BMS Principal Tom Starratt and Assistant Principal Chip Mercurio shared their student, staff, and stakeholder-centered approach to school improvement and why they chose to use the Baldrige Education Criteria to support this approach.
