Program Evaluation Solutions provide K-12 administrators with the insight to help invest resources responsibly and intelligently. This advanced insight can support the maximization of program effectiveness, mitigation of unnecessary costs, and support student success.

We help you answer key questions and deliver strategies for success:

  • How much do our programs really cost?
  • What are the impacts and benefits of our programs?
  • Which programs effectively maximize outcomes?
  • Do we have equity gaps in terms of programming or teacher implementation?
  • Should we pilot a program or learn about other districts’ success before launch?

A Word from One of Our K-12 Education Clients:

When deciding to engage with Hanover, we were impressed by the library of materials that were timely and relevant for many of our current strategies. We are currently embarking on a strategic planning process, where we will develop outcomes, focus areas and initiatives based on the needs of our students and community. The information base will be essential as we make critical decisions that will impact our district for the next several years. With increased demands on data-based decisions that are relevant, effective and high-leverage, an external thought partner and research library is definitely a good investment.
