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?
One of our biggest goals for the year is to create an infrastructure that will have the capacity to focus on high-quality professional growth of staff. We decided to engage with Hanover because we needed an outside ‘eye’ to provide recommendations and best practices concerning our greatest needs. We anticipate the Professional Development Project having the biggest impact on our institution—if we can improve all of the adults in our division, then outcomes for students will improve, and that is what public education is about. Institutions do not have all of the answers, therefore seeing different perspectives is crucial.
