Stakeholder Perceptions and Impact of a K-12 External Counseling and Family Advocacy Program: A Case Study of Empowering Children with Hope and Opportunity (ECHO)
Center for Catholic Education
The purpose of the project is to better understand different stakeholders’, including families, ECHO service providers, school administrators and faculty, perspectives about the ECHO Program.
Our goal is to better understand stakeholder experiences with and in the program and how the program might be improved to meet its goals of supporting social and emotional learning and student and family mental health. Initial findings have shown ECHO’s services impacting school administrators and families in a positive way. While collecting qualitative data, providing support and resources, teaching coping skills, and being able to impact the entire family were a few ways ECHO is viewed during the interviews.
