JEFFERSON CITY — An education consultant says there is a link between implementing state education programs and the performance of Missouri students.

The State Board of Education received a preliminary report Friday that evaluates the degree to which state education initiatives have been actualized. The study was produced by Doug Reeves and the Leadership and Learning Center.

The preliminary report found a particularly strong tie between program implementation and achievement in five programs, includeing initiatives for reading, teachers' professional development and preschool.

Researchers are to examine 200 schools and 50 districts. They used state assessment results from 2008 and 2009. A final report is to be completed in May.
