Program Evaluation is within Duncanville’s Office of Accountability, and is charged with evaluating federal, state, and locally- funded programs in the District. We work with program staff throughout the district to design and carry out formative and summative program evaluations. The evaluations report objectively on program implementation and outcomes, and serve to inform program staff, decision makers, and planners in the district.
