Download as PDF 17369 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 63 / Tuesday, April 1, 2008 / Notices partners/organizations will serve as key informants in the telephone interviews. The intent is to conduct these group interviews as a semistructured exchange among participants, guided by topics and issues raised by the NET moderator. 6. Project Director Interview of the local SS/HS site will follow the group interview. These structured interviews will be used primarily to assess each partner’s contribution to the core elements of collaborative functioning. The project director interview will be conducted twice for each SS/HS grant, following the group telephone interviews of partnership members in the spring of Years 2 and 3 of the grant. The interviews will be structured around 11 topics, designed to gather information that will be used to: 1. Update program status. 2. Discuss strategies and activities the sites intend to implement. 3. Explore key partners’ involvement in the project. 4. Investigate the role of the community partnership in the local project. 5. Secure information regarding the site’s perspective on the impact of the SS/HS project on students, families, and the community. 6. Assess collaborative functioning. This information will be used to refine project classifications, examine changes in the number and types of evidence-based practices being implemented, and document the number and type of new service structures or systems sites plan to implement through the grant. A NET site liaison will conduct the Project Director interview by telephone. This interview contains a total of 31 questions, focusing on 10 core areas of collaborative functioning. Three subset questions focus on the contribution rating of the partnership, examples to support that rating, and the level of contribution of each required partner. A final question assesses the overall Number of respondents Data collection instrument contribution of each of the partners to the SS/HS project. 7. The Partnership Inventory is a 32item self-completion questionnaire emailed to designated representatives of local partnering organizations. Its purpose is to obtain a subjective assessment of perceptions of operating characteristics of the partnership process through Likert-type scaling. The first 16 items ask respondents to give their opinions about how the SS/HS partnership is functioning in their community. Items 17–26 focus on the contributions the respondent’s organization has made to the collaborative functions related to SS/HS planning and implementation. The final six questions focus on interactions among the participating members of the collaboration, asking how often and how intensely the various organizations work together.
