UNC researchers to develop government-funded education programs

GREELEY – Faculty researchers from the University of Northern Colorado have been selected by the Colorado Department of Education to develop, design and implement an evaluation system for government-funded education programs.

Elysia Clemens, Lisa Rue, Robyn Hess, Sonja Rizzolo and John Froiland were awarded a $179,178 contract to review practices and provide framework for five programs in the CDE’s Dropout Prevention and Student Engagement Unit.

The programs provide academic opportunities for at-risk students, support for students experiencing homelessness, assistance to schools for identifying students at risk of dropping out and re-engaging students who have dropped out, and increased availability of school counselors in secondary schools.

The team’s work will include creating an evaluation system based on tracking student outcomes through online reporting and providing site-based training to staff evaluating the programs, according to a university statement.
