About this Training
This 1.5 day training is offered in response to the many inquiries we receive from truancy program staff about how to measure the effectiveness of their programs. NCSE has designed this interactive training based on practical training experience, lessons learned about truancy reduction and expertise in research and evaluation. This training is held in the spring and fall each year.
Who Should Attend?
This training is designed for those responsible for school-based, court-based or community-based truancy reduction programs. It is ideal for coordinators or managers who want to demonstrate their program successes and use evaluation to improve their programs systematically. It is suitable for those at beginning to intermediate levels of familiarity with data collection and use, and with program evaluation.
Please note – This training is not intended for more advanced evaluators, nor is it training in “best practices” in truancy reduction.
Upon completion of Day 1, participants will have drafted a logic model and will have tools to evaluate their program in the upcoming school semester.
Upon completion of Day 2, participants will be prepared to use TRAIN and will have developed a framework and plan to evaluate their truancy reduction strategies and activities.
The cost of the training is $299.00. View the schedule or the agenda to see all that is included.
