Much of AES’s work has focused on school choice, equity, excellence and diversity. Since 1996, AES has performed 57 Magnet Schools Assistance Program evaluations—more than any other provider. We are currently working on Magnet Schools Assistance Program evaluations in 10 school districts in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Florida, and California. AES partners with UCLA’s National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST) for test score analysis as well as survey design and analysis.
Other programs we have evaluated include the Voluntary Public School Choice, Smaller Learning Communities, Teaching American History, Title IIB Math and Science Partnership, Title IID Enhancing Education Through Technology, Title VII Bilingual Education, 21st Century Community Learner Centers, Drug-Free Schools, and National Science Foundation programs. AES has also written successful proposals for many of these programs.
AES has a long history of developing winning grant proposals that have secured millions of dollars for our clients. Our firm has special expertise in developing successful proposals for the Magnet Schools Assistance Program. AES has either written, or given technical assistance to 53 MSAP funded projects since 1996. In addition, AES wrote successful grants for two federally funded Equity Assistance Centers to enable them to support equity for all students throughout their regions.
