To better understand the impact of our presence within the school community and the effectiveness of programs and services provided by North Chicago Community Partners (NCCP), we distribute year-end surveys all principals, teachers and school staff members at each community school. We also ask volunteers to complete the collaboration survey.  Additionally, students in grades four through eight who attend the After School Enrichment Program complete a program-specific survey, as do parents/guardians of children enrolled in the program. Students in our Academic Lunch BunchQuiet Zone and Saturday Enrichment Program also complete surveys.  Below is a summary of data collected at the end of 2015-2016.
