EVALUATION: PROGRAM EFFECTS ON MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL
Policy Studies Associates Evaluation (2001-2010): Citizen Schools Engaged Policy Studies Associates (PSA), a national leader in educational evaluation, to conduct rigorous longitudinal study of its Boston program from 2001 to 2010. The study found that the Citizen Schools program engaged students who were at greater educational risk than district students overall prior to enrolling in Citizen Schools (Arcaira, Vile, and Reisner 2010). PSA found substantial evidence of statistically significant positive impacts on students’ engagement in school, achievement, and graduation.
