This is one in a series of posts presenting sample elements of a possible proposal. In their illustrative details, its contents are both fictional and factual; however, its overall approach has won grants for similar purposes.


Project Evaluation. As local educational agencies, both YCESC and its school district partners continuously evaluate and report results of educational programs for all students and all staff. Several individual YCESC staff members have 10 or more years of experience in program management and evaluation. Their expertise and accomplishments in meeting and exceeding state and federal evaluation and fiscal accountability standards are widely recognized.


The project will use (a) pre-post teacher surveys, (b) observation checklists, and (c) pre-post participant surveys to measure: (1) the project’s effectiveness in increasing infusion of existing Watershed Education curricular resources into the Science curriculum (grades 6-12) in 12 districts; and (2) the project’s effectiveness in increasing teachers, parents’, and other stakeholders’ critical-thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making skills in environmental issues of water resource management in the Saco River Watershed. Evaluation of project activities also will use testing instruments and performance measures that are packaged with the existing Watershed Education model curricular materials. The Project Coordinator will confer at least monthly with representatives of all project partners to review and discuss collection and analysis of evaluation data and to identify any needed changes in the project’s approach. Results will be reported to all partners and the EPA.
