  1. Days Open

    To ensure providers are on track to meet the required 240 total # of Days open, we will track, on a quarterly basis, the average number of days open per week

    • The goal is 100%. Acceptable performance is 90%.
  2. Proposed vs. Actual Youth Attendance Hours

    This performance indicator considers the approved projected average Youth Attendance Hours as compared to the Actual Average Youth Attendance Hours, by site and by agency.

    • The goal is 100%. Acceptable performance is 80%.
  3. Proposed vs. Actual Average Daily Attendance

    • The goal is 100%. Acceptable performance is 80%.
  4. Actual Population Served

    This performance indicator monitors the requirement to serve a minimum of 85% youth ages 11 to 17. Age of the youth will be based on their DOB. 

    • The goal is 85% or more youth are aged 11 to 17 years.
