Guerrero, Frank; Glassman, Michael
The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) education project implemented by the New York City Board of Education emphasized the delivery of services including parent workshops, staff training and support activities, and curriculum development. An evaluation of the project indicated that: (1) the Advisory Council met and was active in shaping the curriculum; (2) a needs-based staff training program was offered to teachers; (3) no significant difference in knowledge about AIDS between pre- and post-tests of junior high school students; (4) an AIDS curriculum continued to be developed for grades kindergarten through 6 with another curriculum instituted for grades 7 through 12; (5) there was a large increase in the number of students who were receiving AIDS education; (6) a centralized AIDS resource and instructional materials center was being established, and a newsletter is planned; and (7) parent training was instituted. Recommendations were made to continue regular meetings of the AIDS advisory council, to continue parent training in AIDS education, to continue and expand training for Board of Education staff, to complete the development of the AIDS resource center, to expand baseline date on students' knowledge and attitudes, and to conduct follow-up surveys to collect more data on numbers of students receiving AIDS education.
