About the R&E Group

The Research and Evaluation (R&E) Group at the Center for Schools and Communities offers a full complement of research and evaluation services to school districts, state agencies, non-profits and foundations. The R&E Group has nearly two decades of experience developing data collection systems, preparing grant applications, conducting simple and complex quantitative analyses, authoring general and technical reports, and assisting with program design. It manages projects in their entirety from conception to their execution, including data collection, analysis, interpretation and application. The R&E Group also provides consultations to existing projects to improve their operation. In short, the Center’s R&E Group brings extensive experience and training (including doctoral level staff) to every phase of our research and evaluation work.
