Research and Evaluations

Each year, the SUN Service System analyzes data from program and school district databases. We look at what we know about who we serve, as well as what outcomes they achieve after participating in services. The results of this examination are for the parts of the SUN Service System managed by the SUN Service System Division including SUN Community Schools, Social and Support Services for Educational Success, Anti-Poverty Services, Parent Child Development Services, Sexual Minority Youth Services, and Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drug Services.
