KWP: the only Kentucky professional development organization focused on improving writing in K-12:

Proven effective: In a study of on-demand writing assessments, EPSB analyzed the scores of 184,264 Kentucky students taught by 3,476 teachers. [The] “more effective teachers of writing were more likely to have participated in programs of the [Kentucky] Writing Project. NWP activities were highly rated by both the teacher respondents and the institutional respondents, and it seems clear that participation in these activities may be the single most attractive mechanism for improving the quality of writing instruction, both for teacher candidates and for teachers already in the classroom. “—Excerpt from Status of Writing Instruction In Kentucky Public Schools (EPSB, 2012)
