2015-16 Pilot Overview

Recruitment
The goal for the second Smart Source pilot administration was to increase the number of participating schools to at least 350 schools ( from 77 in 2014-15 ) with representation across all eight regions as defined by CDE . 3 Such a sample would allow for better comparison data for schools and would provide aggregate data for all school levels at which the Smart Source tool is administered ( i . e ., elementary , secondary , and combined ). 4 Recruitment of schools for this administration relied on a four-part strategy : 1 ) identify districts in which CEI has an existing relationship and leverage that relationship to facilitate participation from many schools within that district , 2 ) leverage partnerships with other organizations such as CDE , Action for Healthy Kids , and the Northeast County Health Department to encourage schools with whom they work to participate in Smart Source , 3 ) allow participation from schools that contacted CEI and wanted to enroll in the pilot , and 4 ) coordinate effectively with the CDC to recruit schools from a random sample of secondary schools designed to meet their participation requirements for the School Health Profiles survey . 5 As part of this coordination , Smart Source integrated key items from the School Health Profiles tool to establish one process by which both efforts would obtain the required minimum data .
Participation
The second Smart Source pilot was administered between October 2015 and January 2016 with 451 total participating schools ( i . e ., 25 % of all Colorado K-12 schools ) from rural , urban , and suburban communities , including 226 elementary of all Colorado K-12 schools participated in the 2015-16 Smart Source pilot
schools , 175 secondary schools , and 50 combined schools . Although participation in the pilot was voluntary and open to any K-12 school , CEI targeted recruitment based on the region , setting ( e . g ., urban , rural ), size , and free and reduced-price lunch ( FRL ) eligibility percentage to yield participation from schools that generally represent the variety of schools throughout Colorado ( Table 1.1 ). 6
