Research Findings

In September 2010, the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools was awarded a five year Tier II grant by the federal Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) to study the efficacy of the Positive Prevention PLUS curricula in impacting key sexual behaviors, attitudes, behavioral intention and self-efficacy among a diverse population of 3,000 high school students in Southern California. Final peer-reviewed findings published in 2016 demonstrate a statistically-significant delay in the onset of sexual activity, plus statistically-significant increases in student-parent communication around sexual health issues.

! ATTENTION OUT-OF-STATE OAH GRANTEES:

Many OAH grantees are ordering the 2016 edition of Positive Prevention PLUS. This edition contains the same original eleven lessons which were evaluated in the OAH-TPP Tier I Research Project, plus two additional lessons (on STDs and Safe Surrender per California requirements). You may either exclude these extra two lessons from your program, or use them by submitting an OAH Adaptation Request Form.
