BUILD CAPACITY TO WRITE GRANTS, ALIGN SERVICES TO NEEDS USING DATA, AND DOCUMENT SUCCESS

We offer help with identifying grants, creating or identifying metrics for aligning services and measuring success, and doing program evaluations.

Although our original service was evaluating grant-funded programs, through the years, we noticed trends in what is required for grant writing and implementation. Doing program evaluations we saw what school systems, government agencies, and non-profits needed to implement programs in the information age.

We provide the services of

  • identifying relevant policies that impact program planning,
  • identifying relevant data for establishing a need for a service
  • survey items, created and validated with a US DOE grant for measuring risk and protective factors, soft skills, and social-emotional components
  • creating record-keeping and information management resources
  • summarizing relevant research on best practices, and providing literature with citations.
  • creating data dashboards and and graphics for communicating about results.

The services listed above position agencies to write and win grants, and to implement programs that align services to the target population’s need which increases success.

We also provide accountability evaluations of grant-funded programs.

Testing Matters | Kindle Edition

The objective of this book is to empower parents and guardians to better support the needs of their children in schools.

Specifically, this book will help parents and guardians of low-income children and children of color use test data to advocate for their children in any school setting. Rigorous instruction and courses are the cornerstone of all student success. Historically, students’ access to rigorous, high-quality classes has been based on social factors, such as race, income, and the social standing of their parents (Cratty, 2014). Whether intentional or not, schools frequently reproduce social strata that exist in society in the way they assign opportunities for children. With a new call to prepare all students to work in the 21st century, public schools should be changing their unstated missions from maintaining the status quo to providing greater access to academic opportunities.
