Evaluation of Portland Public Schools Extended Day Care Program. Final Report.
Sposito, Patricia J.
The Extended Day Program (EDP) provides before and after school day care service to children in public school buildings. This summative evaluation judges the degree to which EDP has met its goals and served its clients, and provides recommendations for program improvement. The evaluator observed each center over a 6-month period; distributed a questionnaire to EDP staff and public school staff to discover their opinions of the program; interviewed parents, principals, and staff; evaluated an orientation workshop; and videotaped selected program activities. Phase I of the report, February-May 1972, concluded that EDP did not meet its major objectives. Much of the failure lay with inadequate program planning and administrative weaknesses. The program continued, but time limits were suggested within which positive changes should occur. In Phase II, the summer EDP program was evaluated and also found inadequate. Recommendations were made regarding facilities, analysis of programming, and use of existing community resources. (DP)
