April 18, 2016 Action Schools! BC Update and Seeking Feedback
DASH BC is pleased to announce it will be managing and administering the Action Schools! BC program in partnership with viaSport and PHE Canada.
In the coming months, DASH BC will explore which aspects of the Action Schools! BC program best support schools to enable students to learn about healthy living, and to be physically active and make healthy eating choices at school.
We feel it’s important that user feedback is incorporated into this review ensuring the Action Schools! BC program and materials match the classroom of 2016. There are three surveys below; one is intended for those who previously participated in or feel familiar with the components of the Action Schools! BC program (e.g. attended workshops, received/used Action Schools! BC resources or equipment), and one is intended for those who did not participate. The third survey is intended for parents or caregivers of children who were in classes or schools that were using Action Schools! BC resources and/or supports; we would appreciate if you could share this survey link with parents that fit this description (or you can fill it out if you are a parent of a child in an Action Schools! BC school). Upon completion you will be entered into a draw to win one of four iPad Minis for your school.
We will also be conducting a focus group to learn more about educators’ and administrators’ experiences with the program, as well as recommendations for what to retain, revise, or remove from the program moving forward. The focus group will be held over teleconference during the week of April 25-29 and be about 1 hour, and all participants will receive a $25 gift card to Chapters. There is limited space available, so if you are interested in participating please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest as soon as possible (please include your role and school district as well).
Your participation is greatly appreciated!
Surveys will be closing on Wednesday April 27 at 11:59pm
