Learn and Serve Colorado contracted with the Evaluation Center to provide external evaluation services beginning Fall 2006. The evaluation study encompassed the period from November 2006 to August 2007. Previous studies raised questions about the quality of the service learning occurring at sampled schools. In order to make connections between student outcomes and service learning, a measure of the quality of the service learning experience is necessary. The rubric of indicators of high-quality service learning that resulted from this study is envisioned as a tool to support Learn and Serve Colorado schools assess their programs in order to inform ongoing quality improvement., "September 2007.", Description based on online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed March 2014)
Alternative Education Campuses (AECs) are defined as schools that have a specialized mission and serve either a special-needs or at-risk population, where more than 95% of students have either an Individualized Education Program or meet the definition of a “high-risk” student. Each year, schools may apply for designation as an Alternative Education Campus by submitting a request to the Department. The Department evaluates schools on academic achievement, academic growth, postsecondary and workforce readiness, and student engagement (rather than academic growth gaps as in the traditional SPF)., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed March 2016)
