Indicators of the Performance of Local and State Education Agencies in HIV Prevention and Coordinated School Health Program Activities for Adolescent and School Health Programs—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This proposed project is an annual Web-based questionnaire to assess programmatic activities among local, state and territorial education agencies (LEA, SEA and TEA) funded by CDC, NCCDPHP, Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH).
Currently, CDC does not fund a standardized annual reporting process within NCCDPHP that assesses HIV prevention activities or coordinated school health program (CSHP) activities among LEAs, SEAs and TEAs. Data gathered from this questionnaire will: (1) Provide standardized information about how HIV prevention and CSHP funds are used by LEAs, SEAs and TEAs; (2) assess the extent to which programmatic adjustments are indicated; (3) provide descriptive and process information about program activities; and (4) provide greater accountability for use of public funds.
There will be three Web-based questionnaires corresponding to the specific funding sources from the CDC, NCCDPHP, DASH. Two questionnaires pertain to HIV prevention program activities among LEAs, SEAs and TEAs. The third questionnaire pertains to CSHP activities among SEAs.
The two HIV questionnaires will include questions on:
—Distribution of professional development and individualized technical assistance on school policies;
—Distribution of professional development and individualized technical assistance on education curricula and instruction;
—Distribution of professional development and individualized technical assistance assessment of student standards;
—Collaboration with external partners;
—Targeting priority populations;
—Planning and improving projects; and
—Information about additional program activities.
The third questionnaire, CSHP, will also ask the questions above; however, it will focus on physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco-use prevention activities. It will include additional questions on:
—Joint activities of the State Education Agency and State Health Agency (SHA);
—Activities of the CSHP state-wide coalition; and
—Health promotion programs and environmental approaches to Physical Activity, Nutrition and Tobacco (PANT).
There are no costs to respondents except for their time. The approximate annualized burden hours are 718.
