Help with the Indicators for School Health Programs

 

In addition to this tutorial, there are many resources available to assist you with all aspects of collecting, recoding, and reporting the Indicators. We have compiled these resources into one list, which you will find below.

1. DASH Indicators for School Health Programs Questionnaires

(a) Indicators for School Health Programs: HIV Prevention State Education Agencies (used by tribal governments and territorial education agencies); (b) Indicators for School Health Programs: HIV Prevention Local Education Agencies; (c) Indicators for School Health Programs: to support Coordinated School Health Programs (CSHPs) and to address Physical Activity, Nutrition, Tobacco Use (PANT); and (d) Indicators for School Health Programs: Asthma Management (AM) Local Education Agencies are available.

2. FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

These are questions posed by grantees that address common inquiries and provide succinct guidelines for working with your evaluation tools and terminology definitions. For example, if you had a question regarding the definition of a Regional Support Unit, the FAQ would be the best starting point to seek clarification. You may access the Indicators FAQ document from the Adolescent and School Health Web site.

3. Quick Start Guide

This is an orientation guide to the Indicators for School Health Programs and the Web-based system for reporting information to CDC. This essential resource will describe how to log onto the Web-based system, how to start a questionnaire, print and save it, check the work, and submit the questionnaire. The Quick Start Guide is available from the Adolescent and School Health Web site.

4. Optional Tracking Templates/Paper Log Sheets

The RMC and CDC have created optional templates that can be used for tracking activities related to the Indicators. You may choose to use any or all of these by themselves or as a supplement to an electronic tracking system. You may also make changes to the templates to meet the needs of your organization. These forms are available from the Adolescent and School Health Web site.

5. Training Tracker

This is a database program developed to help DASH funded partners keep track of their training events, trainers, and participants. The Training Tracker program and user’s manual are available for downloading from the Professional Development Partnership Web site, and requires a user name and password to access. You may also send an e-mail for assistance. You are free to modify the Training Tracker program to meet your site’s specific needs. This will require someone skilled in Microsoft© Access to do the modifications. To request additional information, training, or TA on Training Tracker, send an e-mail .
