Collected Case Study Evaluations of the Appalachian Regional Commission’s Educational Projects (Vol. 2)

This volume reports the lessons learned from eight best-practice case study evaluations in which local stakeholders were asked to identify project-related lessons they had learned from the projects. Cross-case comparison reveals that stakeholders attributed successful implementation to clear project vision and goals, community buy-in, thorough planning and design, tailored approach for targeted population, staff skill and commitment, integration of services, and strong local leadership.
