Trends are down
Trends are down

Why be concerned?

  • Pre was down

  • Increase pre/post is growing

WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO DO MUCH BETTER THAN WE ARE AND WE ARE NOT DOING AS WELL AS WE HAVE




Potter county teen pregnancy
Potter County Teen Pregnancy

  • Trends on Pregnancy are flat

  • County not the worst in Texas, but in the “bottom” 5 %

  • Some AISD schools seeing increase, some decrease


Trends national state
Trends: National & state

  • Teen Pregnancy Down from 118/1000 (1991) to 69/1000 (2008)

  • Texas Decline follows national trend but at a slower rate


Impact on condom usage
Impact on Condom Usage

Return to National Average suggests last year was abnomal


Why pregnant
Why Pregnant?

  • Having sex to have a baby begins at 1% (7th grade) and grows to 7% (start of 9th), then goes to 5%

  • Trend is upward

  • Consistent with focus group findings that “intentional” pregnancies are happening earlier

  • Clearly a socially desirable activity in some circles early, not later


Focus group results
Focus Group Results

  • Getting pregnant is NOT seen as a negative consequence

    • All teen moms had access to condoms and, in many cases, other forms of birth control but chose not to use it

    • Most pregnancies occur in a “serious” relationship so protection against STDs is not a concern


Progress report


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Could promote condoms and birth control, but until pregnancy is viewed as a negative consequence, behavior won’t change

  • Keeping high school message in only health is not enough

  • We are losing opportunities to reach kids, especially in middle school

  • If we can’t reach parents, too, then we are going to continue to face strong challenges


Best practices from research
Best Practices from research

  • Motivate, Educate, Prepare

    • Offer reasons why

    • Must be medically accurate

    • Improve decision making overall

  • Teachers have to believe in & be comfortable with subject

  • Reach parents and involve them in the conversation

  • Include community service

  • Don’t stop messaging – continue through HS

  • Recognize power of Developmental Assets


Recommendations
Recommendations

  • Take over teaching the curriculum

  • Spread out delivery

  • Exhibit local administrator support

  • Find a way to reach more High School students

  • Reach parents more regularly

  • Seek new media channels since no new funding is available

  • Involve peer resources
