Download as PDF 73334 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 2, 2008 / Notices be collected and compared to injury rates measured in the school health room of 3rd–5th graders at one public elementary school with an ethnically diverse and lower socioeconomic status student body. From this data, a behavioral risk profile for injury will be derived. By learning which children are at risk based on various behavioral characteristics, successful secondary injury prevention strategies may be targeted when resources do not allow universal prevention. The main hypothesis of the study is that children with maladaptive behaviors and social experiences (e.g., aggression, bullying, social withdrawal, peer rejection) will be more at risk for injury than their well-adapted peers. An estimated 183 children and 14 teachers will be surveyed. Information collected will include three data sources: (1) A one-time peer nomination of social behaviors and peer relationships; (2) a one-time teacher’s report of data of the child’s behavior that will reflect the child’s behavior across a school year; and (3) a report of events from the school year as determined by school health room visits for injury. Injury event reports will be compiled by the school health room aide. By learning about risk factors for injuries at school, interventions may be created which can reduce the burden of injuries to children and the disruption to the child’s classroom time. This effort may even impact the amount of time parents must take off from work to pick up their children. There is no cost to respondents except for their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 211. Estimated Annualized Burden Hours Instrument name Students .......................................................... Dated: November 21, 2008.

The purpose of this data collection is to assess the impact and implementation of program models through surveys with teachers and parents, direct child assessments, as well as interviews with teachers, local coaches, trainers and center staff. Respondents: The respondents to these various surveys will include Head Start lead teachers, center staff and directors, trainers, local coaches, lowincome parents and their Head Start children.
