Role of schools in the transmission of measles in rural Senegal: implications for measles control in developing countries. (1/3103)

Patterns of measles transmission at school and at home were studied in 1995 in a rural area of Senegal with a high level of vaccination coverage. Among 209 case children with a median age of 8 years, there were no deaths, although the case fatality ratio has previously been 6-7% in this area. Forty percent of the case children had been vaccinated against measles; the proportion of vaccinated children was higher among secondary cases (47%) than among index cases (33%) (prevalence ratio = 1.36, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.04-1.76). Vaccinated index cases may have been less infectious than unvaccinated index cases, since they produced fewer clinical cases among exposed children (relative risk = 0.55, 95% CI 0.29-1.04). The secondary attack rate was lower in the schools than in the homes (relative risk = 0.31, 95% CI 0.20-0.49). The school outbreaks were protracted, with 4-5 generations of cases being seen in the two larger schools. Vaccine efficacy was found to be 57% (95% CI -23 to 85) in the schools and 74% (95% CI 62-82) in the residential compounds. Measles infection resulted in a mean of 3.8 days of absenteeism per case, though this did not appear to have an impact on the children's grades. Among the index cases, 56% of children were probably infected by neighbors in the community, and 7% were probably infected at health centers, 13% outside the community, and 24% in one of the three schools which had outbreaks during the epidemic. However, most of the school-related cases occurred at the beginning and therefore contributed to the general propagation of the epidemic. To prevent school outbreaks, it may be necessary to require vaccination prior to school entry and to revaccinate children in individual schools upon detection of cases of measles. Multidose measles vaccination schedules will be necessary to control measles in developing countries.  (+info)

Outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness of unknown etiology associated with eating burritos--United States, October 1997-October 1998. (4/3103)

From October 1997 through October 1998, 16 outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness associated with eating burritos occurred in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania. All but one outbreak occurred in schools, and most of the approximately 1700 persons affected were children. This report summarizes investigations of two of these outbreaks and describes the collaborative efforts of CDC, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to identify the etiologic agent(s); these outbreaks may have been caused by an undetected toxin or a new agent not previously associated with illness.  (+info)

School and community influences on adolescent alcohol and drug use. (5/3103)

Social environment risk factors present in schools and communities have not been thoroughly investigated. This study cross-sectionally examined the social environments of schools and communities, and their influence on adolescent alcohol and drug use. Survey responses of eighth grade students (N = 2309), a random half of their parents (n = 943), community leaders (n = 118), school principals (n = 30), school counselors (n = 30) and chemical health providers (n = 14) were pooled to create indices of social environmental norms, role models, social support and opportunities for non-use of alcohol. Each index was examined for its association with prevalences from 30 schools of alcohol use onset, last-month alcohol use, heavy alcohol use and last-year marijuana use in univariate and stepwise regression analyses. Increases in the levels of norms, role models and opportunities for non-use predicted decreases in alcohol use prevalences. The explanatory power of the examined constructs in multivariate analyses was acceptably high (R2: 38-53%). These findings further support the notion that community-wide efforts need to be launched to affect changes in the normative, role model and opportunity structures of adolescents' social environments in order to curb adolescent alcohol and drug use.  (+info)

The epidemic of obesity in American Indian communities and the need for childhood obesity-prevention programs. (6/3103)

American Indians of all ages and both sexes have a high prevalence of obesity. The high prevalence of diabetes mellitus in American Indians shows the adverse effects that obesity has in these communities. Obesity has become a major health problem in American Indians only in the past 1-2 generations and is believed to be associated with the relative abundance of high-fat foods and the rapid change from active to sedentary lifestyles. Intervention studies are urgently needed in American Indian communities to develop and test effective strategies for weight reduction. The poor success rate of adult obesity treatment programs in the general population points to the need to develop prevention approaches aimed toward children. Because eating and physical activity practices are formed early in life and may be carried into adulthood, prevention programs that encourage increased physical activity and healthful eating habits targeted toward young people need to be developed and tested. To be most effective, interventions must be developed with full participation of the American Indian communities.  (+info)

Design and statistical analysis for the Pathways study. (7/3103)

We report the design, rationale, and statistical procedures used in Pathways, a randomized, school-based intervention for the primary prevention of obesity in American Indian children. The intervention, which is now being implemented in 7 American Indian communities around the country, includes a health-promotion curriculum, a physical education program, a school meal program, and a family involvement component. Forty-one schools serving American Indian children were randomly assigned to be either intervention or control groups. The intervention will begin in the third grade and continue through the end of the fifth grade. Efficacy of intervention will be assessed by differences in mean percentage body fat, calculated by a prediction equation, between intervention and control schools at the end of the fifth grade. Power computations indicate that the study has power to detect a mean difference of 2.8% in body fat. Data analysis will use intention-to-treat concepts and the mixed linear model. The study will be completed in 2000.  (+info)

Body composition assessment in American Indian children. (8/3103)

Although the high prevalence of obesity in American Indian children was documented in several surveys that used body mass index (BMI, in kg/m2) as the measure, there is limited information on more direct measurements of body adiposity in this population. The present study evaluated body composition in 81 boys (aged 11.2+/-0.6 y) and 75 girls (aged 11.0+/-0.4 y) attending public schools in 6 American Indian communities: White Mountain Apache, Pima, and Tohono O'Odham in Arizona; Oglala Lakota and Sicangu Lakota in South Dakota; and Navajo in New Mexico and Arizona. These communities were participating in the feasibility phase of Pathways, a multicenter intervention for the primary prevention of obesity. Body composition was estimated by using a combination of skinfold thickness and bioelectrical impedance measurements, with a prediction equation validated previously in this same population. The mean BMI was 20.4+/-4.2 for boys and 21.1+/-5.0 for girls. The sum of the triceps plus subscapular skinfold thicknesses averaged 28.6+/-7.0 mm in boys and 34.0+/-8.0 mm in girls. Mean percentage body fat was 35.6+/-6.9 in boys and 38.8+/-8.5 in girls. The results from this study confirmed the high prevalence of excess body fatness in school-age American Indian children and permitted the development of procedures, training, and quality control for measurement of the main outcome variable in the full-scale Pathways study.  (+info)

The school grounds at Purleigh Community Primary School are a lovely place to visit. The Eco-Committee has been an integral part of deciding what should happen in the school grounds, ensuring that every idea is pupil friendly.. They have an outdoor classroom which doubles up as a storytelling area, willow domes for some relaxation time and some great wildlife areas too. The Eco-Committee put out reptile mats and we have been very lucky to see slow worms and grass snakes using them - a lot of the children will often have a look at these and at our bug hotel in the school grounds during break and lunchtime.. The pupils in the school love to run round and keep active and the school help encourage this by providing space to run, a climbing wall and a tyre obstacle course. Part of the grounds has been separated off as a memorial area for one of our teachers. This was designed by the pupils to be a quiet area to provide a balance within the school grounds, giving a peaceful space for time for ...

When I came across James G. Merrills article "Making Our Case: Schools as Economic Development Engines" (School Administrator, June 2012), I smiled in recognition and picked up the phone. In his article, Merrill, then superintendent of the Virginia Beach, Va., School District, described his districts efforts to show, in a quantitative manner, the importance of the school system as a critical component of the citys economic vitality.. Merrills account delivered the push I needed to follow up on something Id started a couple of weeks before - to find a way to not only quantify the positive financial impact of high school graduates on my districts community but also to illustrate clearly that we, as a public school system, are a driving force behind secure employment, that we have a large and positive impact on the purchase of local goods and services, and that having our school district be a healthy fiscal entity is nearly as important as the education we provide.. Tax Facts. The ...
This paper focuses on senior high school students and the ways that bullying affects their school attendance. Selected items from the 2008 Ghana Global School-based Student Health Survey are analysed first to explore the relationships between the duration and type of bullying and school attendance. Second, we investigate whether having emotional problems, in addition to being bullied, incrementally affects the relationship between bullying and school attendance. Third, we explore the mitigating influence of peer friendships on these relationships. In all cases we provide a gender analysis. The results show that bullying is associated with increased absenteeism for both boys and girls. The analysis of reported emotional problems, however, shows distinct gender differences. For boys, increases in emotional problems are not associated with increased absenteeism for those who are bullied. On the other hand, for girls emotional problems were strongly associated with absenteeism and more so for girls ...

Comprehensive School Mathematics Program (CSMP) stands for both the name of a curriculum and the name of the project that was responsible for developing curriculum materials. Two major curricula were developed under CSMP project, Comprehensive School Mathematics Program(CSMP), a K-6 mathematics program for regular classroom instruction, and the Elements of Mathematics (EM) program, a grades 7-12 mathematics program for gifted students. EM treats traditional topics rigorously and in depth and was the only curriculum that strictly adhere to the Goals for School Mathematics: The Report of the Cambridge Conference on School Mathematics (1963). As a result, it includes much of the content generally required for an undergraduate mathematics major. These two curricula are unrelated to one another but certain members of the CSMP staff contributed to the development of both projects. (There was also some interaction with the Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum Improvement Study program being ...
MassDOT officials today joined students, teachers, and parents in a "walking school bus" from Ash Street in Brockton to the Kennedy School to celebrate International Walk to School Day 2011, a worldwide event with participation by over 6 million people in over 40 countries. Thousands of elementary and middle school-aged children joined hundreds of walking events today across the Commonwealth.. Walking to school is a great way to incorporate some exercise into your daily routine, and gives students some time with their friends before the start of the school day, said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard Davey.. In Massachusetts, Walk to School Day is promoted through MassDOTs Safe Routes to School Program, which works with students, parents, school staff, and local police in 124 communities and over 400 schools to promote walking and bicycling to school in order to improve students health, reduce traffic congestion, and improve air quality.. MassDOTs Safe Routes to School program provides ...
An position statement from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) published in the April 15th issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine asserts that the school day should begin at 8:30 a.m. or later for middle school and high school students.. A release from AASM reports that data show that later start times provide adolescents the opportunity to get sufficient sleep on school nights, which optimizes daytime alertness, reduces tardiness, and improves school attendance. A later school start time supports peak academic performance, more opportunities for learning, better mental health, and enhanced driving safety.. The release quotes lead author and AASM Past President Dr. Nathaniel Watson as saying, "Early school start times make it difficult for adolescents to get sufficient sleep on school nights, and chronic sleep loss among teens is associated with a host of problems, including poor school performance, increased depressive symptoms, and motor vehicle accidents, Starting school at ...

Study Purpose: Bully-Proofing Your School (BPYS) was a school-based intervention program designed to reduce bullying and school violence. The BPYS program differed from other anti-bullying programs by providing teachers with a specific curriculum that could be implemented in the classroom. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the BPYS program at the elementary school and middle school level. Study Design: The Bully-Proofing Your School (BPYS) outcome evaluation consisted of school climate surveys administered to elementary school students (Part 1), middle school students (Part 2), and staff (Part 3) in both the treatment and the comparison schools. The design of the data collection for the study was a repeated cross-sectional design. Within each cross-section, the basic design was a hierarchically nested multilevel design. Students were nested within the schools, and schools were split between treatment and comparison conditions, with unequal numbers of cases and potentially different ...

Last month, a Sherwood Elementary student, age 4, died after a choking incident in the schools cafeteria. After School Superintendent Malcolm Thomas and his health services coordinator Martha Hanna told reporters that every school had a nurse and health technician, Inweekly made public request for the nurses and health techs in the elementary schools.. Thomas has since retracted his statement and said that the nurses oversee several schools.. Several years ago, the School District did away with school nurses when the Escambia County Health Department suffered a budget cut. The School Board privatized first aid of its students and hired Pediatric Services of America. According to records received, Holm Elementary is the only school out of the districts 31 elementary schools with dedicated registered nurses. The elementary schools with Pre-K programs have nurse supervisors that oversee several schools. Sherwood Elementary had a nurse supervisor.. The other elementary schools with Pre-K programs ...

The results from this study indicate that PA opportunities during the school day influence step counts in young children. In addition to PE and recess, we found that minutes of teacher-reported CBPA predicted significantly higher school-day step counts. Consistent with prior studies, fifth-grade students (typically aged 10-11 y) accrued fewer steps than first-grade students (typically aged 6-7 y), and females accrued significantly fewer steps than males overall, as well as during PE and recess. Importantly, CBPA attenuated the decrease in PA among older elementary school students, and CBPA also elicited equal participation from males and females, as measured by step counts.. Previous work has shown PE to be a large contributor to steps accrued during the school day,18,38 and the current findings are consistent with that work. However, many schools-particularly those with lower student achievement on standardized tests-have cut scheduled time for PA over the last decade to prioritize academic ...

This study uses longitudinal data from one large school district - Miami-Dade County Public Schools, to investigate the distribution of principals across schools. Schools serving many low-income, non-white, and low-achieving students have principals with less experience, less education, and who attended less selective colleges. This distribution of principals is partially driven by the initial match of first-time principals to schools at the beginning of their careers and is exacerbated by systematic attrition and transfer away from these schools. Supplementing the data with surveys of principals, the authors find principals stated preferences for school characteristics mirror observed distribution and transfer patterns. Principals prefer to work in easier to serve schools with favorable working conditions which also tend to be schools with fewer poor, minority and/or low-achieving students ...
Background: Evidence show that school connectedness is important to youth wellness. However, considerable inconsistency in the concepts and measures of school connectedness exists across studies. In addition, many measures do not capture the multifaceted dimensions of the school connectedness construct. This study examined the psychometric properties of a school connectedness scale that aimed to measure comprehensively the key constructs of school connectedness. Methods: The scale was developed with teachers and tested with an ethnically diverse sample of 717 high school students enrolled in a school connectedness course using confirmatory factor analysis. Results: Confirmatory factor analyses demonstrated the association of the 15 items with the 5 factors identified in the literature-school involvement, academic motivation, school attachment, teacher support, and peer relations (?[superscript 2] = 439.99, df = 83, p | 0.0001, Comparative Fit Index = 0.991, Tucker-Lewis index =
I have seen firsthand how a parent volunteer program can benefit a middle school. Years ago as my first child entered middle school, I offered to volunteer as I always had at the elementary school and was told that I wasnt needed. The administration and teachers did not want parental input or help. It was not a great school environment and the test scores and morale proved that. Fast forward ten years, a new administration and PTA board saw the need for volunteers in the classrooms and it is a different school.. Test scores have jumped significantly and teachers appreciate the added support. In addition, the PTA has sponsored a yearly "Parents Day" where parents can shadow their child through an entire school day. Surprisingly, students love it and parents are empowered. At our high school, we dont have any classroom volunteers yet, however, the PTA board has 25 parents serving and we are making a difference. I would love to see high school administrators and teachers get behind a volunteer ...

The proposed charter school legislation being heard in the Legislature still leaves us shaking our heads. We wonder if our lawmakers even know that public schools are in trouble financially. They should because the Legislature has cut public schools state funding routinely these past four years.. Case in point: Mondays discussion in the Senate Education Committee led to a 5-1 favorable vote on Senate Bill 1852 which would, among other things, give some of the construction funds reserved for public education to charter schools. Last year, the Legislature gave all of the Public Education Capital Outlay funds for public schools to charter schools, a decision that still defies logic. Lawmakers said they had to achieve parity with public schools.. How nutty is this? District School Boards have to approve the operation of charter schools but they get no oversight into their operations. And whatever charter schools build or upgrade with tax dollars, the charter schools get to keep.. During the debate ...
From Harford County Public Schools:. Joppatowne High School has been selected as a national High Schools That Work (HSTW) Pacesetter School by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB).

Joppatowne High School is a ...
In addition, the children who received the intervention achieved better academic performance, recording higher overall grade point averages through school.. "It is very clear that when children first start school is an important time to promote positive educational and social development," said Hawkins. "Helping teachers and parents be more effective in what they do during the elementary school years has an impact in the long run.". The intervention program was designed as part of a larger on-going study of 800 Seattle school children by Hawkins Social Development Research Group at the UW. It starts when children enter the first grade and continues through the sixth grade. Many other prevention programs begin only in the late elementary school years or in middle school.. The program worked with teachers, students and their parents. Teachers were given five days of special training each year to learn such skills as interactive teaching, classroom monitoring, cooperative learning, and proactive ...

In the most recent data available from the 2013-2014 school year, Maine had 384 students enrolled in five licensed charter schools: roughly 1/5th of 1% of the states entire public school enrollment.. Only 12 other states had a lower rate of enrollment for charter schools, and 10 of those states didnt have any charter schools at all.. Since then, Maine has licensed additional charter schools and enrollment has increased, although charter schools overall role in the educational system remains small. In the 2016-2017 school year, Maine had licensed seven brick-and-mortar charter schools in addition to two virtual charter schools. In spite of that growth, those schools estimated enrollment in the current school year amounts to about 2,000 students - roughly 1% of the states entire student population. ...

PRETORIUS, Stephanus e VILLIERS, Elsabe de. Educators perceptions of school climate and health in selected primary schools. S. Afr. j. educ. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.1, pp.33-52. ISSN 2076-3433.. The aims in this research were to determine the perceptions of school climate held by educators of primary schools in the southern Cape. Six primary schools with a staff complement of 178 educators participated in the investigation. Two instruments were used: the Organisational Climate Description Questionnaire Rutgers Elementary (OCDQ-RE) and Dimensions of Organisational Health Inventory of Elementary Schools (OHI-E). The results indicated that primary school educators in the southern Cape perceived their relations with their principals as closed, while educator-educator relations were perceived as more open. An engaged school climate was taken as the typical prototype for the relevant primary schools. Average health profiles were drawn for the overall organisational health of primary schools. A ...

Results and Analysis of EPAs Additional Monitoring. EPA selected these schools for monitoring because they are located near a large coke oven, a tar plant, and steel facility, as well as other industries which are sources of air toxics emissions. For the purposes of this study, results from the air monitoring at Follansbee Middle School are considered to be indicative of conditions at the nearby Jefferson Primary School (located within a half mile of Follansbee Middle School). Air monitoring was initially conducted at Follansbee Middle School from August 11, 2009 to December 15, 2009 to assess concentrations of benzene and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs); arsenic and other metals in particulate matter less than 10 microns (PM10); and benzo(a)pyrene and other polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the air.

I live near this school. It used to be considered "that weird school on the edge of town with the religious whack-jobs" until the city grew to absorb it. I see it still has the religious whack-jobs involved in its operation.. St. Albert residents have a choice between this school, or one of the schools in the public Catholic School Board, or one of the schools in the Protestant School Board. I know, not much of a choice, right?. My kids go to schools in the protestant system, which is the defacto secular school system in St. Albert. There is essentially no religious indoctrination in the schools, except for a bit of fairly non-religious christmas holiday cheer. I expect that for Mr. Fevin, one of the St. Albert protestant schools would be a better choice.. As for the community, the nuts tend to band together, and St. Albert is predominantly white christians. There are definitely people around who would take my atheism as a personal affront. As long as they stay out of politics I dont ...
There isnt any one perfect school environment. As you say, smaller schools can make it easier to form relationships and work on exposures, which can make a big difference. But a very small school that caters to her anxiety too much might not be providing her with enough opportunities to do her exposures (i.e. face her fears). On the other hand, some kids are actually more anxious in smaller groups, because they feel like theyre getting too much attention. Depending on your daughter, a small school could be too much pressure or too little. Finding the right environment is tricky, and it depends on your daughters specific needs.. Regardless of school size, putting together a good, supportive team at the school is crucial. It is wonderful if there is one really special teacher or staff member at the school whos committed to helping your daughter. A person like that could serve as the "point person." But since in high school you generally have several different teachers, its important to put ...
Lessons Learned" is a series of publications that are a brief recounting of actual school emergencies and crises. This "Lessons Learned" issue addresses the experience of a school district where three middle school students hung themselves within a three-week timeframe. Although deaths were apparently unconnected, the school district is part of a large Hispanic community, and all three students were Hispanic, prompting district administrators and school personnel to be particularly sensitive to the cultural and linguistics need of the community in forming response strategies to help students, faculty and the community cope with and recover from the events. The events described underscore a school districts need to (1) Implement prevention and intervention programs; (2) Create confidential outlets of support; (3) Collaborate with community partners, including mental and public health officials, to create an all-hazards emergency response plan; (4) Provide for immediate, short-term and long-term ...
I read your blog regularly and sometimes post. I was very much taken with your post n Transgenderism today. Rod, it is almost ubiquitous throughout high schools today. It is a thing. I know this through personal experience.. About 5 years ago my oldest daughter started school at a rather large public high school in a very conservative school district in [very red state]. She had previously spent her elementary years at a small Catholic School in the same county. The student population grades preK - 8th was about 325 kids. In 2011 she started at the public high school in the Fall. My wife and I had absolutely no clue what was coming at us.. The school year started off as any regular year would, orientation, supply buying, etc. It was not as if my daughter did not know other kids in the school; she did. She had friends from the neighborhood who had spent their lives in public school and many of the kids from her Catholic school had gone to the same school as well. Anyway, as the semester wore on, ...
In the Western Cape a parent stabbed a principal and then later returned to the school to finish him off, HeraldLIVE reported last month. In Mali, Intel reports that schools are being shut down because of extremist threats.. Schools in Africa are not regarded as safe. Reports of murder, torture, suicide and rape of students and teachers are common. Perhaps the most widespread form of school-related violence is bullying - physical, sexual and emotional. More subtle forms involve discrimination, including name-calling and personal insults; and teachers being excluded from work on political or ideological grounds.. To restore safe, effective learning, strategies need to be focused primarily within the school environment, the site of the violence. Until school-related violence is eliminated, African countries cant achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to provide safe and supportive work environments, and to end violence against all children.. All school-related violence ...
The schools contribution to the borough (often with very little budget) and to society as a whole should not be underestimated. Even in its current state the school has seen excellent results. Somewhere along the line we must ask ourselves how a school can been so successful during such neglect? Could the nature of the schools buildings and its outside space been an important factor? The schools architecture and landscaping has a powerful spirit which comes out in its students and staff. The school was designed during the post war boom (in the same period as the Royal Festival Hall) and was championed as a centre for educational excellence. For a school accessible to all it was a brand new thing to be at the forefront of science, the arts and sports. Progressive attitudes to social provision during the early 1950s are clearly embodied in the schools physical and experiential characteristics. The school still stands for education for all. Perhaps this has been realised in Elliotts success ...
My next step was to fill out as many applications as possible no matter what level, what school, or what area. I really wanted a high school counseling position, but I knew that I was probably not going to get that coveted position. Finally, I received two calls (yes)!! One call was from a high school in the suburbs and the other from a rural elementary school. Ahead of my interviews, I sent my resume to the principals, bought a brand new business suit, and researched the school districts. The interviews came and went with me waiting for a call. I found myself hoping that the high school principal would call and tell me that he had a job waiting for me; however, a letter arrived in the mail from that principal thanking me for my interview (you know what that means). Was this going to be another dead end? Then, several weeks later, the principal from the elementary school called and offered me a job, but there was one catch. The position would be a part time elementary school counselor and part ...
If you wish to transfer your child to a different school at any time (except due to moving house), you should discuss this with the Headteacher of your current school. Then you should approach the Headteacher of your chosen school and discuss the possibility of admission, explaining why you want to change schools. You will then need to complete an In-Year Transfer form . If your application for transfer is approved, your child will change schools at the beginning of a term or half term. The transfer will normally be approved, as long as it doesnt affect the provision of efficient education or the efficient use of resources and is in line with any admission procedures the school has agreed with the council. Failure to complete each section of the application form fully, including the section for the Headteacher of the outgoing school, will result in the form being returned and will delay the process. Applications should not be made more than a term in advance. School places cannot be reserved ...
Walker County and Jasper City Schools are reporting an increase of students being diagnosed with flu. Jasper City Schools Superintendent Dr. Ann Jackson and Walker County Schools Superintendent Dr. Joel Hagood both provided statistics to the Daily Mountain Eagle late Wednesday, regarding confirmed cases.. "We have had a small uptick in absences," Jackson said.. She said Jasper Jr. High and Jasper High School have had to most confirmed cases of flu - 17 as of Wednesday. The elementary schools and intermediate school have had few confirmed cases, but Jackson said some students were sent home Wednesday at T.R. Simmons Elementary School with symptoms.. Hagood said the school systems director of health services, Margaret Guthrie, confirmed Wednesday there were 42 students diagnosed with flu or exhibiting flu-like symptoms system-wide. Dora High School and Sumiton Elementary School have had the most confirmed cases of flu. Pediatrician Dr. Cameron Diaz of Dabbs and Hyland PC in Jasper said their ...
Teens are wearing these bracelets to school and are being sent home or to principals offices.. The legal question is, are school students free speech rights are being taken from them if they get in trouble for wearing the bracelets at school?. Here in Pennsylvania, in Easton north of Philadelphia, a legal fight about this issue is under way involving two middle-school girls who were suspended from school after wearing "I (heart) boobies!" bracelets to school. The bracelets were banned by the school district in October, following similar bans across the nation, according to an Associated Press (AP) story.. The Easton Area School District argues that school students shouldnt wear such bracelets to school because they refer to body parts in a "sexually-charged, double-entendre," according to the AP story.. The bracelets are sold and publicized by the non-profit Keep A Breast Foundation of Carlsbad, Calif., which uses its "I Love Boobies!" campaign to educate young people about the dangers of ...
Why Do Children Need School Psychologists? All children and youth can face problems from time to time related to learning; social relationships; making difficult decisions; or managing emotions such as feeling depressed, anxious, worried, or isolated. School psychologists help students, families, educators, and members of the community understand and resolve both long-term, chronic problems and short-term issues that students may face. They are a highly skilled and ready resource in the effort to ensure that all children and youth thrive in school, at home, and in life.. How Do I Contact a School Psychologist? Every school has access to the services of a school psychologist, although some school psychologists serve two or more schools so may not be at a particular school every day. Most often, school psychologists can be reached by inquiring at the school directly, the districts central office, or locating contact information on the school or district website.. ...

The Russellville School District believes healthy children learn better. Having a registered nurse at each school sets RSD apart from other school districts in regard to nursing care. The 10 registered nurses provide diabetic care, first aid, and emergency care, CPR training for staff, annual health screenings for students, administer medications and attend field trips to provide nursing care.. On top of these duties, our nurses are responsible for the development, implementation, and evaluation of our Coordinated School Health program (CSH). The CSH program consists of eight interactive components: nutrition services, physical education, health education, health services, counseling and support services, healthy school environment, health promotion for staff, and family and community involvement.. ...
Saddleworth School have a first aid room which is managed by a first aid trained member of staff.. School policy dictates that we are unable to provide pain relief to students. However, parents are able to provide medication/pain relief to be held on the school premises, which can then be administered to the pupils as and when necessary. A form 3b is required to be completed in this instance which can be found on the school website and returned to school with the medication.. Could we kindly ask that if a child incurs an injury outside of school hours that this is dealt with by a medically qualified individual at the time of injury. We are having an increasing number of pupils attending with strains/sprains and suspected breaks that have occurred outside of school hours which is something we are unable to treat.. If you feel your child is unfit to be in school, please inform us by text using the absence line number 07624 881315.. We would also like to reiterate that children MUST NOT use their ...

ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Virginia) - Albemarle County Public Schools students earned 75 awards at the 36th annual Virginia Piedmont Regional Science Fair, held this past week in the John Paul Jones Arena at the University of Virginia.. For the first time in several years, fair officials said, two female students earned Grand Champion Awards, Meg Richey from Western Albemarle High School and Mriganka Mandal of Albemarle High School. In the senior division, Albemarle County high school students garnered 29 of the 36 awards for first, second or third place, including 12 first place finishes in the 17 project categories.. Ms. Richeys project, The Morris Orthotic-the Smart Orthotic for Diabetic Patients, took first place in the Medicine & Health Sciences category. The Western Albemarle junior developed a process for detecting peak pressure points on the feet of diabetic patients. Early identification would allow for the adjustments of orthotics to prevent ulcers from developing. Foot ulcer complications ...
An ongoing experiment going on over the past 13 years or so in Appleton, Wisconsin, a town southwest of Green Bay, could make the strongest argument for healthy school lunches yet: Since the school district began switching from processed foods to more nutritional offerings, its experienced a precipitous drop in all sort of deleterious behaviors, from drop outs to students carrying weapons.. Among the changes undertaken by school officials, Central Alternative High School Principal LuAnn Coenen told the blog WELL Said, were pulling vending machines stocked with soda out of their facilities and dumping burgers and fries in favor of water coolers and salad bars heaped with fresh fruits and vegetables. After the changes took place, the school no longer needed police on their grounds, as incidents of drug use, vandalism, and even student mental health issues all diminished (PDF).. The behavior of the students in Appleton is consistent with previous, more rigorous scientific studies that suggest that ...
In Colorado, it is a statutory requirement for every school to have a School Accountability Committee(SAC). The purpose of the SAC is to provide opportunities for parents, staff, and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of their individual schools instruction programs along with being a representative voice for the community. They make recommendations to the school principal on the school-wide action planning and goals for improvement, as well as the school budgeting process. Created by state statue in the 1970s, these committees are comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, students, and community members. The focus of this committee is to inform, encourage, and provide opportunities for all stakeholders to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the schools instructional program and quality improvement processes. School Accountability Committee (SAC) should: - represent the community point of view - make recommendations and/or give advice to the ...
By Dimopoulos, Dimitrios Paraskevopoulos, Stefanos; Pantis, John D ABSTRACT: The ability of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos (NMPZ) in Greece to protect an important sea turtle rookery will ultimately depend on the level of local support and involvement that it receives. Therefore, it is essential for environmental educators to generate among local inhabitants, starting at early ages, positive attitudes concerning the NMPZ. The authors designed a conservation educational module, with 15 activities, to affect knowledge and attitudes of elementary school students. The authors used a quasi-experimental design for summative evaluation with a pretest-posttest control and experimental group to measure the effects on 4 dependent variables: (a) knowledge, (b) understanding and concern, (c) locus of control, and (d) verbal commitment. The survey instrument comprised 32 items that the authors divided into 4 subscales that measured the dependent variables. In total, 332 elementary school students-162 ...
School closures are used to reduce seasonal and pandemic influenza transmission, yet evidence of their effectiveness is sparse. In Argentina, annual winter school breaks occur during the influenza season, providing an opportunity to study this intervention. We used 2005-2008 national weekly surveillance data of visits to a health care provider for influenza-like illness (ILI) from all provinces. Using Serfling-specified Poisson regressions and population-based census denominators, we developed incidence rate ratios (IRRs) for the 3 weeks before, 2 weeks during, and 3 weeks after the break. For persons 5-64 years of age, IRRs were <1 for at least 1 week after the break. Observed rates returned to expected by the third week after the break; overall decrease among persons of all ages was 14%. The largest decrease was among children 5-14 years of age during the week after the break (37% lower IRR). Among adults, effects were weaker and delayed. Two-week winter school breaks significantly decreased
A state or state integrated school principal may consider the formal removal of a student through a stand-down from school for a consecutive period of up to 5 school days. A stand-down, for any student, can total no more than 5 school days in a term, or 10 days in a school year. Students return automatically to school following a stand-down.. While stand-downs impact on actual opportunity to learn they are also a response to a wide range of concerning behaviours including drug and alcohol abuse and violence that are disruptive to the learning of the individuals concerned, and disruptive and unsafe for peers and adults in the school community. Stand-downs can offer an opportunity to reduce tension and reflect on the action which led to the stand-down. As such, if used in appropriate circumstances, a stand-down can be a positive mechanism for preventing escalation. However, its use should be part of a pro-active approach and should be kept to a minimum due to its inherent disruption.. A suspension ...

This article explores young peoples upper secondary school choices after recent reforms of school choice and competition in Sweden, drawing on interviews with students and school staff. The respondents identify important motives and strategies in students school choices, for example, the character of school and schooling, the influence of marketing and education policy, as well as young peoples identities and positions. Young peoples horizons of action and decision-making seem to vary, according inter alia to the degree of urbanity of their geographical locality and exposure to competition. Gender-, ethnicity- and social class-related factors also appear to be influential. We conclude that the school choice and competition reforms draw schools attention to students preferences, but the motive for the interest seems to have little to do with a concern to help young people to make educational school choices and future school-to-work transitions. Finally, we advocate modifications in the ...
Across the country, 28 schools will be opening the door this September to new, modern buildings provided by the governments £4.4 billion priority school building programme (PSBP). Lord Nash, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the School System, said: "The priority school building programme is transforming hundreds of school buildings on budget and ahead of schedule ensuring that all children, regardless of background, can learn in an environment that will help them fulfil their potential." The PSBP is transforming the most run-down schools in the country by providing new facilities including bright classrooms, inspiring libraries and specialist music facilities. The new buildings will ensure pupils have the right environment to help them fulfil their potential. South Nottinghamshire Academy is one of those to reopen through the programme following a £12 million rebuild. The academy will open its doors to a brand new three-storey building with purpose-built science and technology areas ...
Local schools have jumped on the bandwagon to fight outbreaks of seasonal flu. Administrative Assistant Sheilah Johnson said the school system usually partners with the health department to vaccinate the school staff, but with concerns of outbreaks of H1N1 flu across the nation this year, they discussed the possibility of giving shots to the children, also.. "Its the first time that I know of that weve vaccinated the children," Mrs. Johnson said. "We are thankful we were able to partner with the health department to do that. Its a win-win situation for everybody.". Thomson Elementary School students and faculty received seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccines on Jan. 13; Dearing Elementary School students received theirs Jan. 14; and Thomson-McDuffie Junior High students were vaccinated Jan. 20.. Receiving the vaccine was voluntary and students who received the shot were accompanied by their parent. Shots were administered by the McDuffie County Health Department.. Early last week, a consent letter ...
In the present study, HMW-adn and HMW-adn/T-adn were negatively correlated with anthropometric variables (BMI, %BF, WC, and WHtR). Furthermore, only WHtR was significantly or marginally significantly correlated with HMW-adn or HMW-adn/T-adn regardless of sex and physique. To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first study regarding the relationship between HMW-adn or HMW-adn/T-adn and anthropometric variables among over 1600 population-based elementary schoolchildren in Japan, where blood collection and the measurement of %BF and WC are not commonly performed in the annual health examination at elementary schools.. In this study, statistically significant differences between boys and girls were found in most anthropometric variables (Table 1). For example, %BF among boys was higher than that among girls in the present study, which was consistent with other study results conducted among Japanese children 9-10 years of age [15, 16]. A previous study showed that sexual differences in body ...
It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the Community National School model which guarantees Catholic faith formation occurs during the school day is the favoured model of the Catholic Church. In fact, it is not a giant leap to say that Community National Schools are essentially Catholic Schools with built-in alternative classes for other religions and a system that removes the issue of the so-called baptism barrier. No other faith-based group are guaranteed faith formation.. I am sure that Community National Schools are perfectly good schools in every other way. In Ireland, there is no evidence to suggest that any patron body has better quality schools in terms of education and curriculum standards, and anyway, it is almost impossible to measure this.. Ultimately, it looks like the writing is on the wall and Ireland will have failed spectacularly in protecting the human rights of its children. I have seen the above being described as rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic or telling the 3rd ...
Downloadable! This paper examines the effects of inter-school competition on student outcomes by using exogenous variation in the availability of private schools in Chile. Given that naïve estimates of the effects of competition on student outcomes are biased by endogenous entry of schools, this paper uses variation in the number of Catholic priests per capita in different school markets, as an exogenous determinant of the supply of private schools. Results suggest that greater competition significantly raises both test scores and the productivity of schools. There is also evidence that the effects of school choice are significantly larger for students attending subsidized private schools, and insignificant or even negative for students attending public schools facing softer budget constraints

Tailored programs could reduce obesity, help implement federal wellness policies. Programs to promote healthy eating can substantially reduce the amount of unhealthy foods and beverages on school grounds if the programs focus on a schools specific needs and involve teachers, parents, staff, and administrators, according to a Kaiser Permanente Southern California study published in BioMed Centrals open access journal International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity.. The Healthy Options for Nutrition Environments in Schools (Healthy ONES) study used a public health approach to change nutrition environments and policies in eight elementary and middle schools over a three-year period. The study was funded by the U.S. Department of Agricultures National Research Initiative and included 400 students.. Researchers found that using a more participatory public health approach decreased by 30 percent the amount of unhealthy foods and beverages in intervention schools. Control ...
Finding a British school in Thailand is easy as there are several academic institutions in the country. While Thailands academic standards is generally competitive, there are certain schools that stand out from the rest. Here are some ideas to help you choose the right British school in Thailand.. School location The security of your child is of utmost importance. Being in a foreign country increases ones security risk and that does not exclude your child or children. Look for schools that are closer to your home or your office so you can easily respond in case of emergency issues or if your child needs you. It would also be better if you choose a school that offers car pool or school bus service. Another important aspect to check is the security features of the school. Find out if they have a round-the-clock security personnel, emergency exits, fire alarms and child-friendly spaces. Avoid choosing a school that is located near shopping malls or entertainment hubs.. Teachers academic ...
To find additional information about admissions, click HERE.. Is my child a good fit for the SEED School? Families and school staff will want to be sure that any student applying to SEED is a good fit for the program being offered. Students must be capable of being safe and healthy within a boarding school program, and should be personally motivated to pursue and prepare for a college education. Although SEED is a boarding school, it should not be confused with a therapeutic residential program. SEED does not offer this type of highly specialized treatment. The dedicated and talented SEED School staff is equipped to work with students on the full spectrum of academic and behavioral successes and challenges ...
Mr Belfield, 45, a Cambridge maths graduate who became head in 2010, has previously criticised "pathetic" children for being ill and female pupils for wearing short skirts, it has been reported.. The school held a sixth-form casino night on Saturday where pupils dressed up, with girls in "little black dresses", according to its website.. Mr Belfield was unavailable to talk to Sky News on Wednesday as he was dining with 72 parents in Hong Kong, the school said. Just under two thirds of the pupils at Ruthin are from overseas.. In an email to parents regarding relationships, seen by Sky News, he said that all students, staff and parents were aware of his "strict views on behaviour and this is one reason why parents choose Ruthin School".. He continued: "Unlike many other schools in the UK, the young people at Ruthin School have exceptionally good behaviour and they are focused on their study and their goal of entering top universities. The students know how proud I am of them. ...

Once on the phone with the nurse, her mom asked if her daughter had been given the EpiPen and if 911 had been called. The nurse had done neither. "I was shocked that a trained medical professional was either unaware of the most up-to-date protocol for anaphylaxis, or unwilling to follow it," the mom explained. "I told her administer the EpiPen and call 911 immediately." Sadly, even after the school called 911 the stress compiled when school officials sent Lia to the hospital alone.. "It is ludicrous that a minor would be sent alone to a hospital during school hours with no personnel to represent her," her mom shared. "I am horrified and saddened by the complete lack of common sense and compassion that predicated this decision." Its unclear what responsibility school administrators have when a student needs to go to the emergency room, but in such a life-threatening situation wouldnt we all want someone to be with our child?. We were in middle school when we learned how to use an EpiPen. My ...
There are currently no studies available reporting intervention effects on breaking up childrens sedentary time. This study examined the UP4FUN intervention effect on objectively measured number of breaks in sedentary time, number of sedentary bouts (, 10 mins) and total and average amount of time spent in those sedentary bouts among 10- to 12-year-old Belgian children. The total sample included 354 children (mean age: 10.9 ± 0.7 years; 59% girls) with valid ActiGraph accelerometer data at pre- and posttest. Only few and small intervention effects were found, namely on total time spent in sedentary bouts immediately after school hours (4-6PM; β = -3.51mins) and on average time spent in sedentary bouts before school hours (6-8.30AM; β = -4.83mins) and immediately after school hours in favor of children from intervention schools (β = -2.71mins). Unexpectedly, girls from intervention schools decreased the number of breaks during school hours (8.30AM-4PM; β = -23.45breaks) and increased the ...
Downloadable! We provide estimates for the effect of attending a Faith school on educational achievement using a census of primary school pupils in England. We argue that there are no credible instruments for Faith school attendance in this context. Instead, we partially control for selection into religious schooling by tracking pupils over time and comparing attainments of students who exhibit different levels of commitment to religious education through their choice of secondary school and residence. Using this approach, we find only a small advantage from Faith primary schooling, worth about 1 percentile on age-11 test scores. Moreover, this is linked to autonomous admissions and governance arrangements, and not to religious character of the schools. We then go on to show that our estimates vary substantially across pupil subgroups that exhibit different levels of sorting on observable characteristics into Faith schooling, and provide bounds on what the Faith school effect would be in the absence
In 1988, at the 70th convention of the American Federation of Teachers, its President, Albert Shanker, proposed to reform the public school system through the formation of community-based, teacher-run Charter Schools. In 1991, the first Charter School Law was enacted in Minnesota. California followed with the "1992 Charter School Act." Today, in California there are approximately 1,200 schools serving half a million students. In 2016-2017, the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) enrolled 4,577 in 11 charter schools; in 2017-2018, charter school enrollment is expected to be around five thousand students or approximately 15% of the Districts student population.. Apparently, progressive teachers and community activists were not the only ones attracted to Shankers neoliberal utopia. Only six years after the initial call for reform, academic bureaucrats, philanthropic entrepreneurs and plain corporate scammers took over the popular movement for school reform. To his credit, Shanker ...
Overall-Assessment. At the end of the school, students were given a questionnaire in order to find out about their opinion on this summer school.. Strengths. In my opinion this first international school at WSBS was a big success. The mixture of scientists/lecturers representing different research fields and coming from different countries, certainly, was one of the strengths of the school.. In addition, all students worked hard and tried to get out as much as possible from this school. There was a very friendly and very lively working atmosphere throughout the whole course time, with many interactions among students but also between students and lecturers. In general, technical facilities were good to excellent, and the station is well capable to host such an international school. Of course, the biggest strength of the school at WSBS is that marine organisms can be obtained fresh from the sea and then maintained in aquaria without any problems. This allowed a great variety of animals to be ...
Beginning this year, the state is requiring every eighth grader to complete a high school graduation plan at the end of the school year and select a career pathway to study throughout high school.. And if they want to qualify for a HOPE scholarship when they graduate, theyre going to have to meet new academic rigor requirements by taking Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or dual enrollment college courses. The changes are part of the states new College and Career Readiness Initiative.. "The changes are designed to produce a more competitive student as well as get students to start thinking about life after high school," said Savannah-Chatham Public Schools Executive Director of School Governance Aretha Rhone-Bush.. Career Pathways To shift student focus toward career preparation, elementary schools are required to provide career awareness programs to expose students to various careers and the type of education and training they require.. Middle school students will participate in ...
Nationally, 28.3 percent of teachers in traditional public schools are chronically absent, meaning they miss more than ten school days a year for sick and personal leave," David Griffith wrote in Teacher Absenteeism in Charter and Traditional Public Schools, released in September 2017. "In contrast, only 10.3 percent of teachers in charter schools are chronically absent.". "School systems have been generous in supplying teachers with excused absences," Griffith wrote. "On average, teachers get more than twelve sick and personal days per year, though only one-third of US workers are entitled to ten or more sick days, even though the latter have a longer work year (up to 60 days more). For the most part, these generous leave policies are negotiated by teacher unions and school boards and incorporated into contracts (or sometimes state law).

If your child is diagnosed with a communicable disease, please call the office or your school nurse. Students who have symptoms of illness should not attend school. Such symptoms could include fever, frequent or productive cough, throat or ear pain, vomiting or diarrhea, or an undiagnosed rash. If antibiotics are prescribed for an illness, please wait 24 hours before sending your child to school.. Only basic first aid is done at school. School secretaries and health aides provide this care in our schools with school nurse training and consultation. Parents are notified if a child sustains any significant injury at school so that the student can be observed closely at home. Staff will call 911 if a student presents with a potentially serious, life-threatening illness or injury.. Medications can be given at school if needed following state guidelines and district policy. We encourage parents to give medication at home as much as possible. We must have written parental permission to give any ...
The Get Ready! for Secondary School program, which is a joint project between the Boards Program and Continuing Education Departments, blends approximately 20 hours of literacy and numeracy-focused instruction with secondary school readiness activities that help welcome and prepare students for their secondary school experience. Ensuring the success of students as they transition from elementary to secondary school is one of the key strategies of the Boards Student Success Program, said Carmel Murphy, Superintendent of Program and Learning Services. These transition programs provide students with opportunities to feel welcome, make connections, and develop relationships with other students and Senior Peer Leaders. Students get the opportunity to learn about their secondary school, teachers and their own personal learning styles before attending classes in September.. Grade 9 students will participate in a variety of activities during their transition program, including school tours, ...

Problem. The view out of the car window as one heads toward Beard Elementary school in Detroit can hardly be called scenic. From Chrysler Freeway, one can see heavy industrial plants stretch into southwest Detroit. Within all of this ugliness sits a little elementary school. Like something out of a storybook, Beard Elementary school, built in 1886, is a picturesque little red schoolhouse. When inside, the first impression is quite romantic, but after a quick tour, the building s limitations become clear. The school has no cafeteria, a minuscule gym, and is extremely overcrowded with 563 students. However, construction for a new and better school was started in July of 2000 at 7036 Chatfield Street (Thornton, 2000). The new school is necessary because of the poor conditions in the current school. Unfortunately, the Detroit Public Schools have decided to build the new school on property contaminated with lead, arsenic, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), benzo(a)pyrene, and trichloroethylene ...
The picture looks even worse when one considers the Quick Counts Data of DepEd on elementary and high schools. High school has less teachers, less classrooms, less desks. Take, for example, the case of Paete, Laguna. The town has three public elementary schools in its poblacion, but there is only one public high school and it is not as big as the three elementary schools combined. At the national level, the number of teachers in elementary schools is approximately twice the number of teachers in high school. If problems in elementary schools are not addressed at the earlier stages, one may guess that problems would only get worse in high school. And if problems remain in high school, we will do remediation in college. Do we know remedial education? The following is a good place to start ...
The aim of this study was to examine the association between sports participation and sedentary behavior during school recess among Brazilian adolescents. This study included 2,243 adolescents aged 13-18 years (16.2 ± 1.1), 62.2% females and 37.8% males, enrolled in public high schools in Aracaju, Northeastern Brazil. Sedentary behavior during school recess and sport participation was self-reported. Several factors were examined, including sex, age, skin color, socioeconomic status, maternal education and physical activity level. Sixty percent of adolescents had sedentary behavior during school recess and 57.7% of adolescents reported that they did not participate in any team sport. Additionally, adolescents who did not practice any team sport were 40% more likely (OR: 1.4, 95% CI: 1.1, 1.8) to be sedentary during school recess compared to those who participated in two or more team sports. It is recommended that schools encourage students to engage in sports activities and promote more physical ...
The school nurse functions as a leader and the coordinator of the school health services team. The team may also include a school physician, licensed practical nurses, health aides and clerical staff, school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, and substance abuse counselors. The health team may also expand to create a coordinated school health team that integrates health services, health education, physical education, nutrition services, counseling/psychological/social services, healthy school environment, health promotion for staff, and family/community involvement.23 Occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech-language pathologists may also be part of the school health team. A pediatrician often fills the school physician role, because pediatricians are knowledgeable about general pediatrics, school health, and adolescent health. School physicians review guidelines, policies, and programs related to health care in schools. In some schools, a pediatric or ...

Educators at schools with 65 percent of students eligible for free and reduced lunches under the National School Lunch Program may apply for grants of up to $700 to cover transportation costs for field trips to arts and culture sites, historic landmarks, nature preserves, and science institutions in New Jersey, as well as college campuses throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Schools may apply now through February 19 for field trips to take place between March 15 through the summer of 2016. Schools will be notified of the grant decision by March 9. Field Trip New Jersey will be administered through the Community Foundation of New Jersey, which partnered with Dodge to commit $25,000 to launch this pilot program. With an additional $15,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the funders hope to support more than 50 field trips at schools throughout New Jersey this round.

Atherton High School administrators are looking to revise the schools discrimination policy after complaints arose from a male-bodied transgender students use of the girls restroom.. The student, who identifies as a female, was allowed to use both of the schools girls-only restrooms, but, following complaints, school officials limited her to only one of the restrooms.. In a letter sent home to parents of Atherton students, officials at the school announced their plan to add a non-discrimination statement to school policy focusing on gender identity. Chris Hartman, the director of the Louisville Fairness Campaign, said allowing a transgender student access to gender-*specific restrooms is important not only for basic civil rights, but also for safety.. "A great deal of violence and sexual assault against transgender people, in general, and transgender youth occurs in restrooms," he said. "When we are talking about restroom accommodations being important it is about safety of all students and ...
WEDNESDAY, Dec. 27, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- The link between concussions and brain injury might be a hot topic in the NFL, but at the high school level? Apparently not so much.. Overall, only about a third of high school athletes, their coaches and parents know that a concussion is a brain injury, according to a new study by Mayo Clinic researchers. The athletes themselves were the most likely to know that fact, the researchers found.. They surveyed 115 athletes, 132 parents and 15 coaches at three high schools in Rochester, Minn. They were involved with a variety of sports -- football, soccer, volleyball, hockey, basketball, wrestling, dance, gymnastics, lacrosse, baseball and softball. All of the participants completed a questionnaire designed to assess what they knew about concussions.. Most people could identify the possible effects of concussion, the study found. Coaches had the most knowledge about how a concussion occurs, when to take an athlete out of a game and the potential effects of ...
As of October 15, 1985, there have been 204 cases of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) (or 1% of the total number of cases) reported in American children. Serologic testing has detected additional high-risk children (eg, hemophiliacs) who are human T lymphotropic virus type Ill/ lymphadenopathy-associated virus (HTLV-III/ LAV) antibody positive and are apparently well. Some of these children are of school age; thus, a policy on school attendance of children with HTLV-III infection is required.. The present AAP recommendations are based on (1) a review of available data related to potential transmission of HTLV-III by school-aged children and (2) the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) statement of August 30, 1985.. BACKGROUND These recommendations apply to all children known to be infected with HTLV-III/LAV including (1) children with AIDS as defined for reporting purposes (see Table); (2) children determined to have an illness due to infection with HTLV-III/ LAV but who do not meet the ...
