How are we Evaluated: 1. Program Evaluation 2. Financial Evaluation
1. Program Evaluation:
Sukrupa measure the following key areas as indicators of program success:
Progress in academics is measured through regular monthly tests and exams, results of which are maintained in Marks lists.
Health and Well-being:
Progress in Health is measured through the regular attendance of the students to the school: Of note, health among Sukrupa students–as determined by observable data including absenteeism and referrals to hospitals–has greatly improved as a direct result of the nutritious food and physical exercise programs provided for all students participating in SUKRPA’s programs.
Mental and Moral Compass:
The development of personal character is a core element of the Sukrupa program. Discipline, obedience, right attitude, good behavior and self-confidence are all tracked through observable data such as participation and performance in inter-organizational and inter-school competition.
Levels of participation and results (for example, winning prizes in sports and cultural events) positively indicate the growth of students in the areas of sports and creativity.
