NCSE AAA Policy and Practices Assessment

This is a tool to help school teams reexamine their policies and practices in light of best practices in school engagement. An individual school can use the assessment, or a district can involve a group of schools. The assessment includes a customized report and technical assistance to help teams decide on priority action steps.

Pueblo Collective Impact

NCSE worked with a wide range of community partners in Pueblo to secure funding from the Colorado Department of Public Higher Education for a collective impact project to reduce disparities in the rates at which minorities enroll and persist in higher education. We participated throughout the three-year project conducting informative qualitative studies to support the project learning goals, and conducted the final program evaluation.
