The purpose of this evaluation is to determine the perceived effectiveness of Title 1, Part A elementary support positions and professional development initiatives and their potential for impact on student achievement. The evaluation is intended to be primarily formative, that is, for the purpose of improvement. However, it also will be summative in that the information obtained will give an overall measure of perceived effectiveness over the 2009‐2010 school year.
