Progress: Performance target for 2003 was exceeded.

Explanation: Out of an aggregate total of 34 goals reported by 5 grantees, 65% (n=22) were fully met and 35% (n=12) were partially met. N.B.: The actual performance measure used for 2003 is the following: ''The percentage of measurable goals that were partially or fully met by the oldest cohort (excepting no-cost extensions) submitting a performance report in the performance year.'' Goal completion is considered partial when the grantee has made significant progress in reaching their goal without actually meeting the performance target. Requirements for measuring progress toward goals have been incorporated into applications for Character Education Program direct grants.
