Agency Forms Undergoing Paperwork Reduction Act Review, 1190-1191 [2016-287]

Download as PDF 1190 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 6 / Monday, January 11, 2016 / Notices Background and Brief Description School-associated violence, particularly homicides and suicides that occur in schools, has been a significant public concern for several years. Despite the important role of schools as a setting for violence research and prevention interventions, relatively little scientific or systematic work has been conducted to describe the nature and level of fatal violence associated with schools. Public health and education officials have had to rely on limited local studies and estimated numbers to describe the extent of school-associated violent death. As a result, the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) requested assistance from the Division of Violence Prevention (DVP)/National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) in establishing an ongoing surveillance system of school-associated violent deaths (SAVD) in the United States with the goal of tracking and monitoring the extent of this problem on an ongoing method of the fatal injury; and the security and violence prevention activities in the school and community where the death occurred, before and after the fatal injury event. Additionally, law enforcement reports on each case are obtained. The study population will include the victims and offenders from all identified events in which there was a school-associated violent death in the U.S. The surveillance system will continue to contribute to the understanding of fatal violence associated with schools, guide further research in the area, and help direct ongoing and future prevention programs. Data collected through the surveillance system will be reviewed and used by CDC, the US Department of Education, the US Department of Justice, and other outside agencies and organizations. OMB approval is requested for three years. The only cost to respondents will be time spent on the telephone responding to the survey. basis. The SAVD surveillance system remains the only systematic effort to document school-associated violent deaths on a national basis. Data from the SAVD surveillance system are intended to contribute to the understanding of fatal violence associated with schools, guide further research in the area, and help direct ongoing and future prevention programs. The data collection methodology involves investigators reviewing public records and published press reports concerning each SAVD. For each identified case, investigators will interview an investigating law enforcement official and a school official who are knowledgeable about the case in question. Researchers will request information on both the victim and alleged offender(s)—including demographic data, their academic and criminal records, and their relationship to one another. They will also collect data on the time and location of the death; the circumstances, motive, and ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Average burden per response (in hours) Total burden hours (in hours) Type of respondent Form name Law Enforcement Officer ...................

The current evaluation of Dating Matters® tests a comprehensive approach to prevent TDV among youth in high-risk urban communities. In order to address gaps in effective prevention programming for youth in urban communities with high crime and economic disadvantage, who may be at highest risk for TDV perpetration and victimization, Dating Matters® focuses on middle school youth with universal primary prevention strategies aimed at building a foundation of healthy relationship skills before dating and/or TDV is initiated. All data collected as part of this request will be used in the longitudinal outcome evaluation of the Dating Matters® initiative. No teen dating violence comprehensive program has been developed and implemented specifically for high risk urban communities. Further, no other data source exists to examine the effectiveness of the Dating Matters® initiative for preventing dating violence. The evaluation utilizes a cluster randomized design in which 46 schools in four funded communities (Alameda County, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Broward County, Florida; and, Chicago, Illinois), were randomized to either Dating Matters® or standard practice. CDC seeks to continue evaluation activities in these four communities. Therefore, this data collection is critical to understand the effectiveness, feasibility, and cost of Dating Matters® and to inform decisions about disseminating the program to other communities.

Proposed Project

    Evaluation of Dating Matters[supreg]: Strategies to Promote Healthy 
Teen Relationships--Revision (OMB# 0920-0941, expiration date 5/30/
2016)--National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is seeking a 
revision request that will enable continued longitudinal follow-up for 
CDC's teen dating violence (TDV) prevention initiative, Dating 
Matters[supreg]: Strategies to Promote Healthy Teen Relationships. 
Approval of this revision request will

[[Page 1191]]

allow us to continue to assess the effectiveness of the CDC-developed 
comprehensive approach to TDV for longer-term follow-up as the students 
in our sample age and their engagement in dating relationships 
increases. The current evaluation of Dating Matters[supreg] tests a 
comprehensive approach to prevent TDV among youth in high-risk urban 
communities. In order to address gaps in effective prevention 
programming for youth in urban communities with high crime and economic 
disadvantage, who may be at highest risk for TDV perpetration and 
victimization, Dating Matters[supreg] focuses on middle school youth 
with universal primary prevention strategies aimed at building a 
foundation of healthy relationship skills before dating and/or TDV is 
initiated.
    All data collected as part of this request will be used in the 
longitudinal outcome evaluation of the Dating Matters[supreg] 
initiative. No teen dating violence comprehensive program has been 
developed and implemented specifically for high risk urban communities. 
Further, no other data source exists to examine the effectiveness of 
the Dating Matters[supreg] initiative for preventing dating violence. 
The evaluation utilizes a cluster randomized design in which 46 schools 
in four funded communities (Alameda County, California; Baltimore, 
Maryland; Broward County, Florida; and, Chicago, Illinois), were 
randomized to either Dating Matters[supreg] or standard practice.
    CDC seeks to continue evaluation activities in these four 
communities. Therefore, this data collection is critical to understand 
the effectiveness, feasibility, and cost of Dating Matters[supreg] and 
to inform decisions about disseminating the program to other 
communities.
    OMB approval is requested for three years for this revision. The 
only cost to respondents will be time spent on responding to the 
survey. A total of 4,399 respondents will be approached on an annual 
basis with an average estimated burden of 45/60 minutes per respondent 
per year (3,299 burden hours).
