Abstract

This evaluation examines the effectiveness of the DeKalb Alternative School Program as it relates to increasing the personal growth of the students. The sample consists of 31 faculty of the DeKalb Alternative School who work directly with the students. For the purpose of this evaluation, the effectiveness of the program in advancing personal growth in students was measured by the perceptions of the teachers who work with them daily in the school environment. The evaluation measures faculty perceptions of student growth by using a questionnaire consisting of both open and close-ended questions. Descriptive statistical analysis is used to summarize the overall findings of the evaluation, which reports that the DeKalb Alternative School Program promotes the personal advancement of its students. Findings from this evaluation may be used to maintain or improve the effectiveness of the DeKalb Alternative School Program in addressing the personal advancement of its students.
