C.R.S. Section 22-99-104
Pilot program evaluation


Subject to available appropriations, the department shall issue a request for proposals for a program evaluation of the pilot program to be completed no later than October 1, 2023. The cost of the program evaluation must not exceed one hundred eighty thousand dollars for the duration of the pilot program through completion of the program evaluation. The contract must include data collection on an ongoing basis with baseline, formative data collection throughout the pilot program period and a post-data collection analysis. In awarding the contract for the program evaluation, first priority shall be given to a proposal from a state-supported institution of higher education in Colorado that offers a kindergarten through twelfth grade physical education licensure program.

The department shall contract with the program evaluator at the commencement of the pilot program, if possible, so that the pilot program evaluator can develop the necessary data collection practices prior to implementation of the operation of the pilot program in schools. At a minimum, the pilot program evaluator shall develop the necessary data collection practices to ensure that the program evaluation can assess pilot program impacts, including but not limited to:


Objective measures of student behavior resulting from implementation of the pilot program, which measures may demonstrate changes in student disciplinary referrals, attendance, and academic achievement, among other behaviors; and


Objective measures of changes to student health and well-being, which measures may demonstrate student physical fitness, as well as broader measures of student health and well-being, including changes in mental health or substance use.


The program evaluator shall conduct a student and instructor perception survey and interviews to determine the value of the pilot program experience to students and to physical education instructors and classroom instructors and shall also review student and instructor formative and summative assessments to determine the impact of the pilot program.


For purposes of program evaluation, the program evaluator shall work with pilot program recipients to identify and determine collection practices for necessary data from initial implementation of the pilot program through completion of the final pilot program evaluation. Necessary data collected by pilot program participants must include, but is not limited to, student demographics, measures of student poverty, and English language learner status. The program evaluator shall not release student identifying information and shall comply with state and federal law relating to student data privacy.
