Model Program Evaluations. Fact Sheet
Arkansas Safe Schools Initiative Division
There are probably thousands of programs and courses intended to prevent or reduce violence in this nation's schools. Evaluating these many programs has become a problem or goal in itself. There are now many evaluation programs, with many levels of designations, such as model, promising, best practice, exemplary and noteworthy. "Model program" is the term most often applied, and it has come to have a life of its own. This paper presents a list of evaluation programs that address many ages and communities. These programs have in common substantial funding from major stakeholders, such as the U.S. Department of Justice, especially the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), the U.S. Department of Education, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
