Great Jobs KC

Annual Evaluations

KC SCHOLARS, AND NOW AS GREAT JOBS KC, IS RIGOROUSLY EVALUATED BY A THIRD-PARTY EVALUATOR TO DEMONSTRATE ITS IMPACT

The Upjohn Institute completed the third-party evaluation of KC Scholars during the first three program years, and West Ed completed year four and year five evaluations.  In their first annual report evaluators declared, “The KC Scholars program adhered carefully to design parameters of its scholarship and College Savings Match programs. We found this particularly impressive since, in our experience, initial implementation of complex programs can sometimes result in adjustments to procedures that alter design principle. The program personnel should be applauded for the admirable flexibility and adaptability they displayed.”

Annual evaluation reports and executive summaries can be found below. KC Scholars holds an annual stakeholders meeting to share the most recent evaluation results.
