Program Evaluation - 2130

Mukilteo School District
Instruction - Series 2000
Program Evaluation - 2130

The Board recognizes the value of program evaluation to improve educational programs and practices. The Board strives to achieve efficiency and effectiveness in all facets of its operations. In order to achieve this goal, the Board shall strive to set forth:

  1. a clear statement of expectations and purpose for the District's instruction programs,

  2. a provision for staff, resources and support to achieve the stated expectations and purposes; and

  3. a plan for evaluating instructional programs and services to determine how well expectations and purposes are being met.

Any system of accountability should measure the results, the program, a department, a school or the District against its own baseline. The District will use a variety of evaluation processes to determine the effectiveness of its programs. Comparisons with other results, programs, departments, schools or districts may also be useful but may not be meaningful in assessing performance if they do not account for differences in other variables that affect the results.

The Superintendent shall prepare an annual report which reflects the degree to which District program goals have been accomplished.
