Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. We will have a survey at the end of the camp as well as an on-line survey for families of the New Ulm Suzuki School of Music at the end of the fall semester. We have a parent volunteer, Mary Glawe, who has graciously helped our co-directors complete this for us in the past and we anticipate she will do this for us again.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We created, distributed, and tabulated our online survey. This determines if students and their families are satisfied with our Summer Pops Camp and the New Ulm Suzuki School of Music program, and areas we can improve.
