Planning and Conducting Needs Assessments: A Practical Guide
Witkin & Altschuld, 1995
The graduation rate for students identified as homeless in their senior year in my state will increase to at least 85 % by SY 2016.
Need: The graduation rate for students
identified as homeless in their senior year in my state needs to increase from 56% to at least the state average of 85% for all students.
Over the past three years, you have conducted 15 monitoring visits in high-poverty LEAs that identified less than 10 students. Nine of the LEAs received findings for not conducting outreach activities to identify homeless students.
Write a need statement on the worksheet with the pink star that expresses the gap between what is and what should be.
Write a SMART goal based on the need you expressed.
Identify a challenge
1. Ask why this challenge exists – develop hypotheses (and identify data sources to confirm)
2. Ask why the situations in the confirmed hypotheses exist – develop hypotheses and confirm with data
We will deal only in hypotheticals today
Logic Model Thinking
Need Statement: Homeless parents wait on the average of one week before enrolling their children when they move to a new temporary location; to minimize educational discontinuity, homeless parents should enroll their children within two days of a move.
In 2013-2014, 100% of local homeless liaisons receive training and resources to provide homeless parents support and guidance to help them enroll their children when they move to a new local attendance area.
In SY 2014-2015, 100% of local homeless liaisons provide homeless parents support and guidance to help them enroll their children when they move to a new local attendance area.
The gap between when a homeless student leaves a school and enrolls in a new school will be reduced to two days for 85% of homeless students by SY 2015-2016.
Trainers will provide parent outreach strategies for liaisons at the state conference &in webinars.
The SEA will develop a brochure for homeless parents that underscore the importance of education continuity.
Evidence of parental outreach will be included in LEA monitoring.
Local liaisons will provide “Signs of Homelessness” to teachers and school staff to help them identify families who may be leaving the school area.
