Research and Evaluation for Continuous Improvement

The Community Schools Evaluation Toolkit is designed to help community schools evaluate their efforts so that they learn from their successes, identify current challenges, and plan future efforts accordingly. It provides a step-by-step process for planning and conducting an evaluation at your community school site(s).

Evaluating the Operations of Your Community School
