Allensworth, Diane DeMuth; Symons, Cynthia Wolford; Olds, R. Scott
This publication is a project replication kit for practitioners who want to improve their school health programs. The project used a multidisciplinary model of comprehensive school health education in three secondary schools within the Cleveland School District, Ohio. Based on the Healthy People 2000 initiative, this publication focuses on six priority behaviors addressed by the project as critical in reducing premature illness and death in adolescents. Ten chapters are: (1) "Understanding the Focus for School Health Improvement" (Diane DeMuth Allensworth); (2) "Setting the Stage for Continuous Improvement in School Health" (Diane DeMuth Allensworth); (3) "Working Together for Continuous Improvement of the School Health Program: A Total Quality Management Approach" (John Allensworth and Jeanine Ray); (4) "Alcohol and Other Drug Use Prevention" (Diane DeMuth Allensworth, Cynthia Wolford Symons, and R. Scott Olds); (5) "Chronic Disease Prevention" (R. Scott Olds, Diane DeMuth Allensworth, and Cynthia Wolford Symons); (6) "Intentional Injury Prevention" (Julia M. Haidet and Diane DeMuth Allensworth); (7) "Unintentional Injury Prevention" (Diane DeMuth Allensworth and Julia M. Haidet); (8) "Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and Management" (Diane DeMuth Allensworth, Cynthia Wolford Symons, and R. Scott Olds); (9) "A Theoretical Approach to School-Based HIV Prevention" (Diane DeMuth Allensworth and Cynthia Wolford Symons); and (10) "Healthy People 2000: An Agenda for Schoolsite Health Promotion Programming" (Cynthia Wolford Symons, Carol DiMarco Cummings, and R. Scott Olds). Four appendixes focus on the eight component assessment, 1994 national health observances, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, and comprehensive school health education worksheets.
