Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $250,000)

This project continues the national evaluation of the Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative (SS/HS). There are two distinct sets of cross-site activities associated with the SS/HS Initiative. The national evaluation, covering the 97 sites funded during the first three years of the Initiative, is a comprehensive cross-site evaluation. Evaluation consortia provide SS/HS sites funded in FY 2002 (46 sites) and FY 2003 (23 sites) the opportunity to collaborate in the design and execution of smaller-scale cross-site evaluations. Activities that will be supported focus on three major tasks regarding reporting and dissemination, including (1) finalizing topical reports, (2) preparing and finalizing a comprehensive final report, and (3) preparing a public use data set with supporting documentation. In addition, RTI will also carry out three sets of evaluation consortia activities: (1) monitoring and providing technical assistance to the five local evaluator groups funded as evaluation consortia, (2) documenting the development of the evaluation consortia process, and (3) compiling local evaluation results from sites funded between FY 1999 and FY 2003.NCA/NCF
