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?
The Middle Schools for Tomorrow Workgroup was brought together to allow parents, students, teachers, and the larger community to take an active role in crafting their vision of the future for ACPS middle schools. The workgroup was asked to create their idealized middle school, take a critical look at current practices within Alexandria middle schools, and ultimately lay the groundwork for how the division should move strategically forward.
Hanover Research, in conjunction with school division staff, were integral in this work by supplying best practices research around identified topics, crafting and administering a survey, providing quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and responding to stakeholder feedback throughout the six-month process. Decisions are only as good as the information used in forming them, and the research and data analysis provided allowed the stakeholder group to make the highest quality decisions not only in reaction to where our middle schools had been, but more importantly where they must go.
