The NAREN Self-Study Kit is used by districts in any of four ways:
- How well IS your at-risk program doing? Assess your program against nine research-based criteria, and substantiate your greatness!
- Program not going so well? Use the NAREN Nine to restructure your at-risk program according to research-based quality facets.
- Want to build a new quality program for at-risk youth? Use the research-based NAREN Nine as a formative tool in developing new programs such that they will be excellent from the beginning.
- NAREN offers the only process whereby you can certify your at-risk program against research-based criteria no matter what the rest of the school is doing. Authenticate and improve your at-risk program through the certification process, and then show it off to everyone!
