R-7 School District earns Golden Achievement Award

January 8, 2014 

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District recently earned the Missouri School Public Relations Association’s Golden Achievement Award for the district’s legislative advocacy efforts.

The Golden Achievement Award recognizes best practices as demonstrated by a single public relations effort or program that includes multiple strategies. The state-wide organization hosts an annual communications recognition program for school districts from throughout Missouri.

Lee’s Summit R-7 legislative efforts include ongoing work with several community groups, including the Citizens’ Advisory Committee, Business Roundtable and PTAs; initiation of a legislative advocacy electronic newsletter during January 2013; the hosting of community legislative forums; a legislative advocacy website; a ‘toolkit for advocacy’ guide; voting records of area legislators; and an advocacy trip to the state capitol involving members of the Board of Education and other community organizations.

To sign up for the R-7 legislative advocacy newsletter, visit the district’s legislative website at http://www.lsr7.org/district/2013-legislative-platform/.

The website also includes the district’s legislative platform, toolkit for advocacy, contact information for elected officials representing this area and voting records.
