Via Evaluation President and CEO Dr. Gary Ciurczak recently returned from his second one week trip to Santiago, Chile. Via Evaluation, JPS Solutions’ partner Arthur Pritchard, and Carlos Medina, who is both the Center for Educational Innovation – Public Education Association (CEI-PEA) Director of Special Projects and a Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow, met with government officials and university faculty members about possible collaboration in the very near future.

The project possibilities include capacity building projects promoting school safety in Santiago through the use of training and data-based decision making. This photograph was taken outside the Intendente (similar to a Mayor) of Santiago’s office, and includes (left to right) the Coordinator of Local Governments, the project Attorney, a member of the Santiago Regional City Council, the Intendente of Santiago, Gary Ciurczak, Art Pritchard, and Carlos Medina.
