Student level academic measures including test scores, attendance School measures including attendance, test scores, discipline records, nurse records School environment measures Process measures baseline and post – intervention Self-evaluation of 15 Steps Number of Steps Met by Each School Conclusions and Next Steps From the baseline self-evaluation in Spring 2003 to the the post-intervention self-evaluation conducted in Spring 2005, both the number of schools that met each step and the number of steps met by each school increased. With the conclusion of the pilot study, the NFSC model has become imbedded in the school culture. Each school committee has developed a plan for sustainability and will continue their progress with limited technical assistance provided by the research team. The plans for NFSC certification are being finalized and the certification process will begin in Spring 2006. Additionally, a case study is being developed to highlight each school’s NFSC achievements. Finally, a tool kit is being developed to assist schools in implementing the NFSC model without intensive support from the research team. The case studies and tool kit will be available in 2006. NFSC Goal Actively engage school community to prevent overweight in elementary school children through multi-level participative intervention facilitating coordinated changes in the school environment to support healthy eating and physical activity behaviors of students, staff, and parents.
