2018–2019 Texas 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Cycle 10, Year 1 Grant

We performed an evaluation for Donna Independent School District's (DISD) ACE Program. This program was implemented during the 2017-2018 academic school year and spanned across seven (7) elementary schools, two (2) middle schools, and one (1) high school, for a total of 10 campuses. Our analysis of the program displayed the success that Donna ISD has achieved in implementing this program. DISD was able to serve approximately 1,300 students and 600 parents as of May 2018 of the second year of the program. These totals exceeded the grant minimum of 1,000 and 300, respectively.

Additionally, our analysis determined that despite the lack of funds at the district, DISD was able to successfully provide high-quality services to the children most in need within the targeted campuses. As part of our services, we provided this evaluation report to both the 21st CCLC Grant Program Director of DISD, as well as, to TEA for review. This ensures that DISD stays in grant compliance and is eligible to receive grant funding in the future.
