As part of the federally funded 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Program, the New York State Education Department awarded the City School District of Albany a competitive $2.7 million grant.

Evaluation & Research

CHSR is conducting an evaluation of the Albany 21st CCLC Program in accordance with federal and state requirements. The purpose of the evaluation is to provide comprehensive information on program implementation and outcomes. The mixed-methods evaluation will draw on multiple sources of data, including student and teacher surveys, site visits, attendance and disciplinary records, student grades, and standardized test scores. Specific indicators were developed for the evaluation based on three long-term project goals:

  • Improve academic and behavioral outcomes for students at six target schools
  • Expand support for parents’ educational and professional development
  • Build and sustain school-based partnerships with local service providers
