FACE4Kids SUMMARY for Public School Locations

Teacher PRE and POST SURVEY

Each School had a counselor that committed and supportive of the FACE program being implemented within their Duval County Public School. Also, FACE started in Chester County PA in 2012. The Teachers had to fill out a PRE Survey for each student attending the youth leadership program. There are 5 Main categories with Metrics summarized on the students since 2015-2016. Each category has two tasks being valued with a numeric score, with the values added per student. The Values represent a Summary of averages per school per category. After the FACE graduation occurs at each school, the contact counselor is asked to gather the same information for a POST survey with regard to each student completing and graduating from the program.

While the qualitative data has been impressive, this year, we were focused on our quantitative data collection.  Both teachers and students have completed rating scales which will gave us pre and post scores in Fitness, Confidence, School Effort, and Behavior Choices.  We confirmed that this additional data collection continues to validate the impact of the FACE program - as EVERY school improved in all 5 categories. The SUMMARY AVERAGES per school year are below along with FACE4Kids METRICS SUMMARY (PDF) for view. Click on Graph below to VIEW larger image.

The one-day Teach-the-Teacher training will give school counselors and others interested in implementing FACE at their school site an opportunity to learn the content and structure of the program.   Those attending will gain the knowledge and   skills necessary to implement the Balance (martial arts), Coordination and Movement (animal games), Jump Roping, and Juggling activities.  The character education and public speaking components are covered and attendees will receive a training manual.  Participants are also encouraged to observe several sessions of the FACE program being implemented either at their school site or another location prior to implementing it themselves.

Metric Details

Pre Survey Metric Details were completed by teachers on scoring 0-10, with two topics per category. The SUMMARY is the average score of students per school for the specific category. A POST survey will be completed after the graduation, and differences will be noted to analyze the change in the students behavior, attitude, confidence, etc.

Students also filled out their own survey with scoring values and writing their own responses to phrase 'I want to improve in:" The focus is on the Teacher Metrics, as the numbers between PRE survey and POST survey can best represent the progression of student per his/her classroom teacher.


Sample comments from the students, "I want to improve in":
  • Controlling my temper
  • Making good choices
  • Not getting in fights
  • My attitude
  • Turn in my homework
  • Confidence and speaking better
  • Feeling good about myself
  • Turning in my homework on time
  • Get an education
  • Being a Leader!
