Continuing the Healthy Schools Program evaluation during the contract-bidding process

This project will provide for continuity of program data collection and continuing data analysis during the bidding process for the evaluation of the Healthy Schools Program (HSP). HSP relies on data input to its website by participating schools to monitor school progress in encouraging physical activity and healthy eating. RMC Research Corporation (RMC) has merged, analyzed and reported this data under a contract that will be expiring. This project will allow RMC to continue to provide vital reports to HSP during the three months of the bidding process for the ongoing evaluation. RMC will conduct these activities under the direction of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which launched HSP in 2006. RMC will provide monthly reports analyzing the data input by participating schools on the HSP website. It will also conduct additional analyses of existing data at the direction of the Alliance in consultation with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. RMC will also document the procedure it has used for merging, analyzing and reporting data input by participating schools, as well as documenting technical assistance participation.
