Managing Your CAPP Project
The Health Educator Supervisor is responsible for maintaining the overall CAPP project, as well as supervising educators. With some regular maintenance, you can keep your project running smoothly!
Many tasks should be done on a regular basis.
- Observe your educators in action! Use this as an opportunity to engage in continuous quality improvement by providing honest feedback to your educators.
Complete your Biannual Report (BAR) to let the Department of Health and ACT for Youth know about your CAPP activities for the last six months. These are due January 31 and July 31, but you can add information to these reports at any time through the CAPP Online Reporting System (ORS). Information reported in the BAR includes:
- Staff changes
- Trainings that educators attended
- Summaries of Component 1 sexual health education and Component 2 positive youth development (PYD) programming
- CAPP parent education activities
- Outreach, education, or community readiness activities
- Activities to improve access to sexual health care services
- Referrals to other services
- Accomplishments, successful strategies, barriers, and challenges
- Consider upcoming changes: When and where will programming be offered? This may vary by setting and based on time of year (for example, summer programming may look different from programming in the academic year). What project planning do you need to do to be prepared for the upcoming quarter? Do you have site permission to implement programming and collect surveys? Are there any expected changes in leadership at your implementation sites?
Engage in continuous quality improvement with your CAPP team. Set up a team meeting to review your program implementation data, discuss challenges and successes, and plan for even better future implementation! See your Dynamic Data Summary (data visualization) and Using Your Data for resources and guidance. Consider:
- How are you doing?
- What is going well?
- Where can improvements be made?
- Review the CAPP training calendar; register for trainings as needed. Identify additional professional development needs and opportunities for (and with!) your team.
- Look for email announcements from ACT for Youth regarding this week's events, including trainings, learning community meetings, workshops, and more.
- Ensure your team enters implementation data through the CAPP Online Reporting System. After a session of Component 1 sexual health or Component 2 PYD programming is complete, information about that session should be entered in the CAPP ORS. Cycles should be reviewed and submitted no later than two weeks after the last session of the cycle.
- Reach out to the ACT for Youth team as you identify training needs or challenges in implementing your CAPP project. You can request support or technical assistance through the CAPP ORS.
- Reach out to your Department of Health program advisor for questions or issues related to your budget or overall grant structure.
