Proposed Project

Indicators of the Performance of Local and State and Education Agencies in HIV-prevention and Coordinated School Health Program Activities for Adolescent and School Health Programs (0920-0672)—(Extension)—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

The proposed project is an annual Web-based questionnaire to assess programmatic activities among local education agencies (LEA) and state and territorial education agencies (SEA and TEA) funded by the Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Currently, there is no standardized annual reporting process for HIV prevention activities or coordinated school health program (CSHP) activities among LEAs and SEAs/TEAs funded by DASH. Data being gathered will be in the form of four questionnaires, which will: (1) Provide standardized information about how HIV prevention, asthma management, and CSHP funds are used by LEAs and SEAs; (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. These questionnaires are to be completed within ninety days after the end of the fiscal year by the DASH-funded partners on a Web site managed by DASH.

Of the four Web-based questionnaires corresponding to the specific funding source: Two (2) questionnaires will pertain to HIV-prevention program activities among LEAs and SEAs/TEAs; one (1) will pertain to asthma management activities among LEAs; and one (1) will pertain to CSHP activities among SEAs.

The 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 on student standards.
  • Collaboration with external partners.
  • Targeting priority populations.
  • Planning and improving projects.
  • Information about additional program activities.

The asthma questionnaire will ask the questions above, but will focus on asthma management activities.

The CSHP questionnaire will also ask the questions above, but focused on physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco-use prevention activities (PANT), and include additional questions on:

  • Joint activities of the State Education Agency and State Health Agency (SHA).
  • Activities of the CSHP state-wide coalition.
  • Health promotion programs and environmental approaches to PANT.

There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey.
