Published on

Our strategic plan measures the effectiveness of the Duval UDL over a three to five year period. We are confident that speech and debate instruction will instill a high level of self-efficacy in active students who remain in the program. However, we have established a full evaluation team to provide an ongoing assessment and reports to address not only the common areas of academic performance like GPA, attendance, and test scores, but community service and parent engagement also.
