Download this publicationThis report summarizes key findings from data collected during Year 3 for the 33 school districts (August 1, 2015-July 31, 2016) and
community partners (August 1, 2015-July 31, 2016).

JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI) was contracted by MFH to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of HSHC’s school, community, and state-level activities. From the start, JSI collaborated with MFH, the school and community partners, and contractors to develop and employ a mixed-methods evaluation that captures the complexity of the initiative while ensuring realistic and feasible data collection. Specific objectives of the evaluation include assessing (1) the process of school and community partnerships to develop and implement multifactorial interventions, including their ability to adopt and sustain change, and (2) the impact of a collection of school and community-based interventions, including programs, policies, and environmental changes aimed at promoting physical activity and healthy eating.
