Pathways to Progress is a three year, federally funded grant that establishes community learning centers at each of the eight Saint Paul Public School sites. These community learning centers are designed to provide coordinated expanded day and year community learning activities for students, families and community members in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
Over the course of the grant, we have greatly appreciated our collaboration with numerous staff members of the Saint Paul Public School system. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the leadership and administrative support provided by Area E Superintendent, Dr. Terilyn Turner.
In the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment, we would like to thank Director, Dr. Thomas Watkins and his staff; Katherine Seiden and Cynthia Porter. Their assistance in providing data and consulting with us whenever necessary was very helpful.
We also wish to thank Lee Litman, Pathways to Progress project coordinator and her assistant Penny Nielsen for their conscientious efforts, as well as the site coordinators and in-house coordinators at the eight Pathways school sites for their cooperation and assistance (listed alphabetically): Joan Brabeck, Layne Brose, Vanessa Cunningham, Jonathan Goss, Marjorie Hardy, Johanna Meyers, Elida Olson, Nou Thao, Kathy Tonn, and Emily Weiss. We also wish to thank school principals and other school staff members for their support.
We would like to acknowledge staff and students at the Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement who dedicated many hours of their time in this effort. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the assistance of Dr. Michael Michlin, whose counsel on our quantitative methodology and statistical analysis was invaluable. Last, but certainly not least, we owe a great debt to our research assistants, Ashley Lewis and Holly Zorka, for their diligence and fine work throughout the evaluation and in preparation of this report.
