Evaluation Information:

With an historic tradition of excellence, Spaulding's professional staff strives to continually assess, evaluate and improve its educational, behavioral, treatment, and foster care programs. Collection, compilation and analysis of data, on an individual basis as well as for all students, are a hallmark of Spaulding's "RoadMap to Excellence" programming. In the past school year, students made significant academic progress on Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment tests, and the academic staff worked diligently to customize the curriculum to attend to the individual needs of each student. Spaulding was honored that staff was invited by professional and peer organizations to make presentations on creative utilization of whiteboards, efforts to reduce restraints, and how to create a RoadMap to Excellence.

How evaluation data was collected:
Data collected and analyzed at school/district level
