Colorado School Health Education Survey 1992. Report.
Utah Univ., Salt Lake City. Health Education Dept.
This report summarizes and interprets the results of the 1992 Colorado School Health Education Survey, which targets public secondary schools with grades 7 through 12. Results provide a basic sketch of the extent of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) prevention and health education being implemented in Colorado's secondary schools. The survey, mailed to a random sample of 288 of Colorado's secondary schools, resulted in 246 respondents. Figures display the numbers and percentages of schools providing HIV education, the numbers and percentages of students receiving HIV education, and the numbers and percentages of schools integrating HIV education into comprehensive health education. Results indicate that many of Colorado's secondary schools provide some kind of HIV prevention education in at least one grade. Between one-half and two-thirds of schools provide some kind of comprehensive health education and HIV prevention education for students in at least one of the grades 7 through 10. Evidence of progress toward program objectives is presented, and suggestions for future school health education surveys are discussed. (JDD)
