College and Career Readiness Solutions provide K-12 administrators the tools to support on-time graduation and student success. Our tools and evidence-based best practices allow you to spot at-risk students early and implement a variety of targeted strategies to address instructional challenges as they arise.
We help you answer key questions and deliver strategies for success:
What factors predict on-time graduation for students?
Which students are falling off-track and may require additional intervention?
Which instructional strategies are most effective in supporting at-risk students?
Which course pathways have long-term success rates and which courses are “gate-keepers” to advanced courses?
How satisfied are alumni with the education they received?
We are a larger district that already has an Office of Program Evaluation. However, the Academic Office wanted an objective, third-party research partner to deliver custom best practices and benchmarking reports to inform some of our new initiatives. We partnered with Hanover because of its extensive experience in K-12 education best practices research as well as its flexible model’s ability to keep pace with our priorities. In the immediate future, we’ll use Hanover to explore best practices for personalized professional development programs and will be taking advantage of the Hanover Digital report library’s collection of existing best practices reports.
