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?
Red Clay Consolidated School District recently completed a Labor Market Analysis with Hanover Research to explore the local and regional labor market. My Hanover team suggested this project because of their knowledge with our strategic plan and our goal to prepare our students for high-demand industries and occupations upon completion of their high school education. Our district team was extremely pleased and found the project informative in identifying industries in which we may focus our career and technical education programs. It is impressive how Hanover personalizes their support.
