Data Collection Procedures
The District was approved for sampling for data collection. Students are selected for data collection during each collection period using criteria established by the Department of Education. All enrolled students in grades K-12 are listed alphabetically by last name and numbered sequentially. A spreadsheet is provided by the US Department of Education (ED) that generates student numbers that should be selected for data collection. Using this procedure, approximately 1/3 of students are chosen for each sampling window.
The US Department of Education requires specific data, reported in aggregate, for Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) performance reporting. There is one GPRA performance objective for the PEP program: To promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles for students. ED has developed three GPRA performance measures for PEP grantees:
