Evaluating School and Organizational Performance and Helping Organizations Improve

JPS Solutions has designed and implemented program evaluations for federal, state and foundation-funded projects, including federally-funded 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Carol White Physical Education programs, Community Technology Centers and Mentoring programs. If you are designing a project or developing a grant proposal that would benefit from a high-quality program evaluation, JPS Solutions can help you.

Our successes include:

  • We are currently conducting program evaluations for three 21st Century Community Centers in New York City and Buffalo (NY), and we’ve designed and conducted program evaluations for other 21st Century Community Learning Centers in Buffalo and Dutchess County (NY).
  • We designed and conducted program evaluations for a Carol White Physical Education grant in Troy (NY), Community Technology Centers in Buffalo and Dutchess County (NY) and a federal mentoring program in Dutchess County (NY).
  • We co-designed and facilitated program audits and “rounds” for classroom teachers (similar to the “hospital rounds” that new doctors engage in with more senior colleagues to improve their skills. We oversaw implementation of “rounds” for schools in New York City, Buffalo (NY) and New Jersey.
  • JPS Solutions partner Frank San Felice was a member of the team that evaluated the $50 million New York State Diffusion Fund.
