How will we measure impact?

Measuring Impact

In recent studies, Minnesota has been shown to have one of the widest achievement gaps in the nation between white students and students of color. Minnesota schools also rank particularly high in teasing, bullying, and aggressive behaviors.

  • Community Partnerships
  • Family Involvement
  • School Climate
  • Student Learning and Development

The impact of This is My Home on the above indicators will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and the results will be made public.
