A Questionnaire to Assess HIV-prevention Program Activities for Adolescent and School Health Programs—New—National Center for HIV, STD and TB (NCHSTP). The proposed project is an annual web-based questionnaire to report on and to assess HIV-prevention program activities among local and state and territorial education agencies funded by the Division of Adolescent and School Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The purpose of this request is to obtain OMB clearance to conduct Start Printed Page 80433an annual questionnaire focusing on HIV prevention program activities: assistance and training on school HIV policies, assistance and training on HIV curricula and instruction, training on student standards and assessment for HIV prevention, collaboration with external partners, targeting priority populations, planning and improving projects and information about additional activities. There is currently no standardized annual reporting process for HIV prevention activities among local and state education agencies funded by the Division of Adolescent and School Health. Data gathered from this questionnaire will (1) provide standardized information about how HIV prevention funds are used by local and state education agencies, (2) assess the extent to which programmatic adjustments are indicated, (3) determine the collective impact of funded programs, and (4) provide accountability of information for use of public funds. The estimated cost to respondents is $12,819.45 assuming an hourly wage of $26.40 and $22.96 for local and state education agency staff respectively.
