Criteria for Evaluating the School Health Services Program.
Brophy, Helen; And Others
This publication offers a checklist for identifying strengths and weaknesses of school health programs. The instrument can be used by school personnel, community members, or by an outside team of experts. Criteria are expressed in terms of desirable practices, with provisions for judging, on a five-point scale, the extent to which program characteristics meet each criterion. These criteria are organized into two areas, administration and the school nurses' role in the program. Considered under administration are district policies, written goals and objectives, personnel, facilities, responsibilities of principals, staff development activities, and student and family responses to the program. Criteria included for evaluating the school nurses' role are duties of health service personnel in and out of the school, procedures for evaluating and reviewing student health, providing health counseling to students, teachers, and parents, maintaining a safe school environment, and provisions for annual program evaluation.
