Program Evaluations
Part D, Subpart 2, Section 1431(a)
• Each state agency or LEA that conducts a
prevention & intervention program for children &
youth who are neglected, delinquent, or at risk
under Part D, subparts 1 & 2 must evaluate the
program, disaggregating data on participation by
sex and if feasible, by race, ethnicity and age not
less than once every 3 years to determine part
D’s impact on the ability of participants to:
• Maintain and improve educational
achievement by using multiple and
appropriate evaluation measures;
• Accrue school credits that meet state
requirements for grade promotion and
secondary school graduation;
• Make the transition to a regular program or
the education program operated by an
LEA; and
• Complete secondary school (or secondary
school equivalency requirements) and
obtain employment after leaving the
institution.
• In conducting each evaluation, a state
agency & LEA shall use multiple &
appropriate measures of student progress.
Each state agency & LEA shall:
• Submit evaluation results to the state
educational agency; and
• Use the results of evaluations to plan &
improve subsequent programs for
participating children & youth.
• Develop/Disseminate Reporting Instrument
For this purpose we have developed
a reporting instrument that:
•
•
•
•
Is accessible through the internet for
online reporting
Is available to all LEAs and institutions
Has comprehensive data management
capability
Data files are encoded and protected by
security codes to protect client
confidentiality.
Reporting System –
New System
• No old data has been transferred from the old
system
• Old system will remain active as an archive
• Each facility must report – no rolling up of data
• Each person using the system is assigned a
unique username and password for each
facility he/she accesses
• Username/password recovery option
Reporting System –
New System
• Master users of each facility maintains
users
• Students are shared across the state and
entered only once into the system
• Data entry in the form of a wizard
• Only required questions are asked
• May not be prompted for all questions
• Automatic email capabilities
• Includes “Title I Survey of Children in Local
Institutions” and reporting information
Word from USDE…
State agencies and LEAs operating Part
D programs may determine the “most
appropriate assessments” to reflect “the
progress of those children toward
meeting the State’s standards”.
