Evaluating Supplemental Educational Service Providers: Issues and Challenges. Topical Summary.
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory NWREL
Evaluation of supplemental educational service providers is one of many responsibilities that SEAs and LEAs now must fulfill under the No Child Left Behind Act. Perhaps more important, evaluation is a way to determine if stakeholder needs are being met. To successfully meet this challenge and ensure that eligible students are receiving high-quality supplemental services, SEAs and LEAs should work together, collect and analyze data from multiple sources, and borrow from the best practices of other program evaluations. Northwest states have always been known for their ability to meet new challenges with innovation and thoughtfulness. By demonstrating leadership in evaluating supplemental service providers, the Northwest region can inspire others to not just comply with the requirements of NCLB, but to ensure quality and make the intent of NCLB a reality.
