Early Learning Evaluation

As the Early Learning Program begins to implement its new model in the 2017-18 program year, the program has engaged the PSESD Strategy, Evaluation and Learning Department to conduct a formal evaluation of the implementation of this model. The evaluation approach is developmental, meaning that:

  • The purpose of the evaluation is to examine and document implementation of the Early Learning design.
  • This information will be used to inform planning, strategy, and continued development of the design.

Given the ongoing nature of the evaluation, the evaluation team, Nathalie Jones and Dr. Laura Lynn, will provide current results and next steps related to the evaluation on this landing page, as they are available. Please contact either of the following with questions ot suggestions:
