Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Science Curriculum Directors

 
  To assist the Department in determining how to best provide
  technical assistance in nutrition and the sciences for science
  teachers, the School Nutrition Programs is implementing a
  statewide needs assessment.  Lumina Training Associates, a
  consulting firm specializing in human resource development for
  Child Nutrition Programs, is conducting the survey.  A
  questionnaire designed to obtain opinions regarding nutrition
  education and its integration in the science curriculum will
  be sent to the science curriculum directors.
  
  We are asking all science curriculum directors in Virginia to
  participate in this survey.  Questionnaires will be kept
  confidential.  The results of this statewide survey will be
  reported in general trends without identifying individuals or
  school divisions.
  
  If you have questions regarding the survey or would like a
  summary of the results, please contact Marlene Culpepper,
  Nutrition Education and Training Specialist, phone 804-225-2433.
