DATA & EVALUATION Our approach is data-driven. The Data and Evaluation Team works to measure outcomes of the Wellness Policy and health and wellness programs at the school and student levels. We lead on survey administration and coordination for the CDC’s School Health Profiles and the Youth Risk Behavior Surveys. We also work with organizations and academic institutions to sponsor research related to our program areas within the Boston Public Schools.
RESEARCH IN BPS: DISTRICT SPONSOR REQUESTS
In order to conduct research in Boston Public Schools (BPS), researchers are required to have a district sponsor for their research work. A district sponsor would be someone from an appropriate central office department who is invested in the research and can take action on the findings. For a complete overview of the requirements to conduct research in BPS, please visit the Office of Data & Accountability website.
If you would like the Office of Health & Wellness (OHW) to be your district sponsor, please review the OHW district research sponsor guidelines and submit your request to Sarah Page firstname.lastname@example.org.
