CPM Tool Survey in May

Elementary and middle grade classroom teachers: check your email for the Coordinated Program Monitoring (CPM) survey arriving in May. This survey tracks the number of health lessons that your students have received and will uncover critical data to help School Health Programs make decisions on resource distribution and programmatic success. The survey is sent twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring, and we ask that you fill it out both times, thanks so much. OASIS | CPM Promotion Flyer
