School Improvement RFP of the Week (2)

The Program Effectiveness Standard for SES Providers in Kentucky

From Monday's issue of K-12Leads and Youth Service Markets Report

Announcement: 2008 - 2009 SES New Provider Application Due May 2 (Mar 20) Department of Education, Kentucky

Their Description: Evidence of Effectiveness in Improving Student Academic Achievement (25 of 100 POINTS).... The applicant must provide a demonstrated record of effectiveness in raising student achievement in reading/language arts, mathematics, or both areas.... Please indicate whether you are applying as a newly created organization or as an established organization....

Established Organizations... have provided tutoring to youth before, even those that have never before been SES providers...

Newly Created Organizations...may not yet have established a demonstrated record of effectiveness....

My Thoughts:

1) As long as SES is in NCLB, solid evidence of program effectiveness will only become more important to SES providers.

2) Ironically SES is at the bleeding edge of evidence-based market regulation - all should watch it.
