California Education Code Section 8484 states that after school programs shall submit annual outcome based data for evaluation, including measures for academic performance, attendance, and positive behavioral changes. The California Department of Education (CDE) may consider these outcomes when determining eligibility for grant renewal. As soon as the spring semester (or trimester) concludes, the lead person for evaluation should collect school data on educational results including attendance and Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program test scores for each student who participated in the after school program. Most of the requested data can be found in students' cumulative records or on a district-based electronic student information system. This evaluation report is important in the overall evaluation of after school programs. It will demonstrate program effectiveness and enable the CDE to collect consistent statewide data for policymakers.
ASES and 21st CCLC program grantees that operated during 2011-12 must submit the 2011-12 Statewide Evaluation Data Form. The same form is used for both 21st CCLC and the ASES programs. Grantees must complete the Accountability data (tab 1) on the Excel workbook according to the Evaluation Instructions.
The 2011-12 Statewide Evaluation Data Form must be received by the CDE by October 12, 2012. The form can be e-mailed to email@example.com or submitted on a CD to:
