Guardian Resource Development, Inc., St. Paul, Minn.
The social, mental and physical health of children in target Minneapolis Schools has been carefully studied. The intent of this project was to design and implement a program which would improve health. This report discusses the progress of the project for the first year. The project's activities centered around planning, needs assessment and development of the health program. The format of the report is as follows: (1) statement of project objective, (2) description of project activities to accomplish the objective, and (3) evaluation findings and statement as to accomplishment of the objective. Important considerations were that both the program and the process of its development be usable and adoptable by others, that the program bring parents, community, and schools together as partners to improve children's health, and that the program enable students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for life-long health practices.
