As people who love numbers, we'd been grappling with how to best evaluate and then express our program with them. Talking with folks from DIP provided so much clarification! Since then, we've simplified our evaluation process, tied it to statewide and other extensive evaluations and even adapted programming. Just one conversation changed our perspective significantly. We're very grateful for this opportunity.
