External Evaluation of ACE: A Community for Education


MCPER works with ACE: A Community for Education (formerly ACEE: AmeriCorps for Community Engagement and Education) to evaluate implementation of its 2011–2012 bilingual reading intervention program in Austin Independent School District. ACE, housed within the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin, works to ensure that all children develop a strong foundation in early literacy skills during their first years in school. Dana Center Director Dr. Philip Uri Treisman founded ACE in 1994. Dr. Mary Ellen Issacs is the director of ACE.


Analyses are ongoing.
