Environmental Compliance. Program Evaluation Report.
This report provides formative-evaluation information about the processes followed by Florida's Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) to comply with national, state, and local governmental environmental regulations. Specifically, the report examines the effectiveness of the Environmental Compliance (EC) team, which monitors OCPS response to governmental mandates and stakeholders' concerns. An overall conclusion is that the EC team is successful in monitoring OCPS responses. As often as possible, the team acts in a proactive manner to correct situations prior to the actual decree of governmental mandates and laws, which prevents penalties and saves money. Specific findings and recommendations are offered for the following 13 areas: program objectives, operational guidelines, reporting procedures, building-level administrator role, recordkeeping procedures, school operations, OCPS personnel perceptions of the EC team, team cooperation with OCPS personnel and students, compliance procedures, timeliness, EC team needs, degree of staff development, and costs associated with environmental compliance.
