This module provides participants with a context for and a strategy to inform school-wide interventions. It will discuss the selection of the Rapid Assessment for Adolescent Preventive Services – Public Health (RAAPS-PH) to aid in the assessment of health of high school youth served and facilitate school-wide strategies, and provides participants with best practices in conducting youth discussion groups to document students’ perceptions about sensitive social issues as a complement to RAAPS-PH findings and to inform school-wide strategies. The group discussion provides an opportunity for analysis and synthesis of module content.
