Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Outcome 1 – Increase access and participation to the choral arts for adolescent boys fifteen percent in our program. Outcome 2 – Maintain our financial assistance programs at their current level to allow access to all boys from disadvantaged circumstances. Outcome 3 – Facilitate a minimum of 225 different children through our outreach programs. (Residential Camp, SingOut!, Day Camp, and One-Day Workshops) Outcome 4 - To renew our commitment to our ADA Plan and fully update it to reflect our change in meeting venue since last summer.Our first three goals are intentionally tangible and numeric in nature so they can be accurately accounted for using attendance records and financial statements. Our fourth goal will be met when the ADA Plan has been approved by the Board of Directors.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We saw our enrollment grow by approximately 10%. This was easily measurable by the rosters. Our current financial assistance program saw a decrease in need from families enrolled and an increase in donors giving to this cause. We were able to reach over 300 children through our various outreach programs. Again, we measured by enrollment records. In an indirect way, through the work of Elk River Lutheran Church, we saw our facility become more accessible to those with disabilities.
