Program Awareness and Marketing Finances Evaluation Home

To maintain a successful program annual evaluation is an integral part of the process.

Each year KDT! works with an independent professional evaluator to survey ICSD teachers, Discovery Trail directors and educators plus a sampling of parents/caregivers. The evaluation and quality improvement process assesses the program to determine if the set goals are being met and offers suggestions for improvements. The KDT! steering committee reviews the final evaluation summary and sets priorities for making improvements the following school year.

The KDT! steering committee determines what areas are to be evaluated on an annual basis.

The following items are examples of what may be included in an evaluation.

  • Program goals and evaluation goals
  • Overview of findings and recommendations
  • Program participation
  • Teacher feedback
  • Parent feedback
