21st CCLC Grantee Resources - Program Evaluation

Statewide Evaluation

Both the State Education Agency (SEA) and grantees must comply with specific evaluation and accountability policies and reporting structures. SEAs must provide comprehensive peridioic evaluations of their 21st CCLC programs, reporting on the performance measures listed in their applications to the United States Department of Education. These reports must be made available for public consumption. 

In fulfillment of the federal requirement for comprehensive periodic evaluation, and because OSDE does not require that grantees hire local evaluators, OSDE sought an evaluation design that prioritized usefulness to grantee-level stakeholders. Therefore, in the fall of 2010, the Oklahoma State Department of Education enlisted the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality at the Forum for Youth Investment (hereafter “evaluation contractor”) to provide a statewide evaluation of the Oklahoma 21st CCLC program.

This document describes the different data systems used by the 21st CCLC program for collecting data. Each system is explained briefly and the data collected in that system are listed.
Data Management Spreadsheet
The Oklahoma Data Management Spreadsheet is intended to be used as a tool to keep track of attendance, programming and staffing data for 21st Century Community Learning Centers. This spreadsheet will be submitted to the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality (Weikart Center) to fulfill attendance, staffing, and regular attendee requirements for the federal reporting system.
For the latest copy of the Data Management Spreadsheet, scroll to the bottom of the Weikart page for Oklahoma and click the link for the [current year] Data Management Spreadsheet toward the bottom.
Data Management Spreadsheet Webinar This previously recorded training webinar will help to familiarize Oklahoma 21st CCLC grantees with the Data Management Spreadsheet as the primary tool used to collect and submit required program data per federal grant guidance.  The webinar can be accessed at any time.


This document outlines the practices of the Oklahoma 21st CCLC team used to monitor for grant compliance.
This tool is used to guide Oklahoma 21st CCLC statewide coordinators during an on-site monitoring visit. 21st CCLC programs are encouraged to use this tool to also guide their own progress and quality improvement.

Annual Report

21st CCLC grantees are required to complete an Annual Report.  Completion of the Annual Report will help to ensure continued funding of your program for the coming year. In addition, this information will help our office to plan training and technical assistance that will be most helpful to all of Oklahoma’s 21st CCLC programs during the coming year.
