  6. Pre-Revision Analysis Health Education Criteria: 82% Health Education Standards: 78% CDC School Guidelines: 77% Curriculum Fundamentals: 75% Technology Standards O% Health Ahead/Heart Smart

  7. Post-Revision Analysis • All sections of the CAT met 100% compliance • Activities were developed to incorporate technology standards • Lessons were classified by Science Standard • Lessons were classified by Health Education Standard Health Ahead/Heart Smart

  8. Conclusion “Health Ahead/Heart Smart K-6 Curriculum offers schools coordinated, comprehensive, standards-based lessons which join the science of predictive risk behaviors with the effective application of protective health behaviors.” Health Ahead/Heart Smart
