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:

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.
