Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
This is the second of three annual evaluation reports of the Georgia Life Skills for Mental Health program, a primary prevention program for alcohol and drug abuse which utilizes community mental health agencies as the link between program sponsors and public schools. This report is designed to document the program evaluation progress, inform the funding source of the project's progress, and accomplish general dissemination of preliminary findings. The evaluation is organized into three sections: (1) Second Year Accomplishments includes objectives and activities undertaken to accomplish them; (2) Accomplishments Planned for Third Year details future activities and target objectives; and (3) Work in Progress describes all fourth-quarter products, reports still in progress, and results of the second year work in terms of the overall project. This report concerns program effects on participating teachers and their students. Findings of teacher workshop observations are discussed, and follow-up instruments developed to provide feedback on workshop effectiveness are included. Instrumentation to measure all student and teacher outcomes is presented along with data analyses of pilot and pre-testing. (NRB)
