Proposed Project

School Health Policies and Programs 2006, OMB No. 0920-0445—Reinstatement with Change—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

CDC intends to continue to conduct the School Health Policies and Programs Study (SHPPS) in 2006. SHPPS is a national study of school health policies and programs at the state, district, school, and course levels. Much of the information collected will expand upon data gathered from the SHPPS 1994 (OMB No. 0920-0340, expiration date 1/31/95) and 2000 (OMB No. 0920-0445, expiration date 10/31/2002).

Modifications were made to the SHPPS 2000 survey to improve the clarity of items. New items were developed to capture information on topics of emerging importance. Specifically, three new topics were added to the School Policy and Environment questionnaires: Physical school environment; crisis preparedness, response, and recovery; and school climate.

SHPPS 2006 will assess the characteristics of eight components of school health programs at the elementary, middle/junior, and senior high school levels: Health education, physical education, health services, mental health and social services, food service, school policy and environment, faculty and staff health promotion, and family and community involvement. SHPPS 2006 data will be used to provide measures for 16 Healthy People 2010 national health objectives. No other national source of data exists for these objectives. The data also will have significant implications for policy and program development for school health programs nationwide.

There are no direct costs to the respondents except for their time to participate in the survey. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 22,840.Start Printed Page 53374
