Project has been completed.

Summary

North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s (NCDPI) K-12 Learn and Serve America Program is an initiative that supports the Corporation for National and Community Service’s (CNCS) focus engaging students, their teachers, and others in service-learning. The purpose of the evaluation is to determine the extent to which the North Carolina K-12 Learn and Serve Program provide a model that effectively demonstrates the integration of service learning through the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, engagement of students in meaningful educational experiences, and renders positive outcomes for students and communities. Evaluation, Assessment, and Policy Connections (EvAP) proposes using a collaborative evaluation approach to ensure that its evaluation efforts benefit from NCDPI program staff and sub-grantee’s knowledge of program dynamics, strengths, and needs. EvAP will work with NCDPI staff and sub-grantees to build evaluation capacity through a) development of evaluation instruments, b) data collection, and c) data analysis.
