SUCCESS Program Planning/Evaluation Report for 1992-93. Focus on Program Evaluation.
Sallade, Ronald; Erickson, Cynthia L.
To address the needs of at-risk children, Project SUCCESS of the Des Moines (Iowa) public schools provides employment, health, mental health, and social services in a comprehensive one-stop shopping manner at public schools. Coordinated services are provided through direct provision of services, case management, and referral as appropriate. The program receives funding from a variety of sources, including the United Way, and about 100 agencies have collaborated with Project SUCCESS in some way or other. Evaluation indicates that the SUCCESS program contributes to the accomplishment of the District mission by serving a diverse population of students, strengthening the qualities of the family that enhance learning, and reducing factors that interfere with learning. Over 70 percent of families receiving services made progress toward achieving goals they developed in individual service plans, and over 80 percent of parents and students reported satisfaction with program services. Expansion of SUCCESS services is planned for prenatal and preschool services. Appendix A contains a third-party review of program efforts, and Appendix B presents a progress report. (SLD)
