Evaluation of the Milwaukee Community Literacy Project

November 1, 2011

The Milwaukee Community Literacy Project supports 300 struggling readers in kindergarten through 3rd grade in reaching proficiency through support in three spheres: the school sphere, the community sphere, and the family sphere. Over the next five years, the Value Added Research Center will evaluate the program to determine how much of an impact the MCLP has on student reading achievement. Further, VARC will conduct a formative evaluation which will include studies of fidelity of implementation and how to foster effective district-school-parent-community agency collaboration.
