A video about the Maine Schools of Excellence Program that Westat developed for the U.S. Department of Education (ED) has won a Silver Telly Award in the category of Non-Broadcast Government Relations.
The video was produced by the Teacher Incentive Fund project and is part of the Teacher & Leadership Programs website. The programs support projects in developing and implementing an integrated Human Capital Management System to increase educator effectiveness and student achievement in high-need schools. Westat has supported ED in this work since 2006.
