Pilot Program Yields Results
Results from the pilot year of the Sun Smart Schools program show that the program is effective in increasing knowledge and behaviors regarding sun safety and sunscreen use. While some grades showed greater impact than others, overall we're considering it a success. We'll be using results of the pilot program to improve and adjust Sun Smart Schools for the coming years. Additionally, we'll continue to survey students and parents, and now teachers as well, to evaluate the program and implement continual improvements.
