Press Release
Decline in sexual risk behaviors among high school students from 1991-2001
The percentage of U.S. high school students who ever had sexual intercourse fell from 54.1 percent to 45.6 percent between 1991 and 2001, according to a new analysis of data trends by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A decline in sexual intercourse occurred among both female and male students, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students, and black and white students, according to the analysis of 10 years of trend data from CDC's Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). The percentage of high school students reporting multiple sex partners (defined as four or more) declined overall from 18.7 percent to 14.2 percent from 1991-2001 and among male students, 11th and 12th grade students, and black and white students. Among all sexually active students (those who had sexual intercourse during the 3 months prior to the survey), condom use increased from 46.2 percent in 1991 to 58.0 percent in 1999, then leveled off at 57.9 percent by 2001. A similar increase followed by a leveling off was seen among female students, 10th and 12th grade students, and black students. Among male students, 9th and 11th grade students, and Hispanic and white students, condom use increased throughout the 10-year period.

    Health Care Metrics Survey
    In January 2004, the Bernard Hodes Group released the results of a recent poll of 151 health care recruiters to determine turnover rates, cost-per-hire and vacancy rates for a range of health care professionals, including registered nurses. The survey found that the average RN turnover rate was 15.5%, the vacancy rate was 13.9% and the average RN cost-per-hire was $2,651, which is approximately 11% higher than the average cost for recruiting allied health workers. Is the Current Shortage of Hospital Nurses Ending In the November/December 2003 issue of Health Affairs, Dr. Peter Buerhaus from Vanderbilt University and his colleagues found that over 100,000 new RNs were hired in 2002; the majority of which were foreign-born nurses and nurses over age 50 returning to the workforce in tough economic times. Though the new hires and a sharp increase in RN salaries are having a positive effect on the current workforce supply, Dr. Buerhaus cautions that the current nursing shortage is far from over and called for immediate federal attention to address the growing crisis, including setting national goals for annual nursing school enrollment increases.

Acceptable Use Policy Summary Student Assault Policy Acceptable Use Policy The School Board (hereinafter referred to as the Board) of the Columbia School District, (hereinafter referred to as the District) recognizes that as technologies affect the manner in which information may be accessed, communicated and transferred by members of society, those changes may also alter instruction and student learning. Telecommunications, electronic information services and networked services significantly alter the information landscape by opening schools, classrooms and library media centers to a broader array of resources. The Board generally supports access by students to rich information resources along with the development by staff of appropriate skills to analyze and evaluate such resources. In making decisions regarding student access to telecommunications and networked information resources, the Board considers its own stated educational mission, goals and objectives. This policy requires that all instructional and library media materials support and enrich the curriculum while taking into account the varied instructional needs, learning styles, abilities and developmental levels of the students.

COLUMBIA BOROUGH SCHOOL DISTRICT The Columbia Museum of History The Rich Tradition and History of the Columbia Public Schools The roots of the educational system in Columbia were planted in fertile soil. Early settlers to the area were those who placed a value on literacy and possessed the ability to read write and compute. They passed on these abilities to their children and utilized the services of tutors to advance the learning if the children of the community. Many families also sent their children to Philadelphia or Lancaster to reap the benefits of the many private schools that had been established there. A final evidence of their desire for education was the number and progression of private schools that were established in and about the community. In 1916, the Washington Institute building was demolished. In its place was erected a new high school that was opened in 1917. After paying a portion of the debt, the Public Ground Company turned the building over to the Board of School Directors who assumed the debt and eventual ownership of the building. An addition was added to the high school in 1939, which was opened in 1940. The high school remained at the Park Street location until 1956. The current

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA COALITION RECEIVES $75,000 GRANT TO PROMOTE POLICY CHANGE SUPPORTING END-OF-LIFE CARE Project Will Benefit Culturally, Ethnically Diverse Patients, Families PRINCETON, N.J.—(Feb. 10, 1999) A broadly based coalition in the District of Columbia today received an 8-month planning grant of $75,000 to target changes in policy that could improve care for dying patients and their families. The coalition will also look for ways to better prepare D.C.-area practicing health professionals to work with the terminally ill. The coalition is one of 17 statewide partnerships to receive funding under a new program encouraging state and community groups to reshape public policy and attitudes to improve end-of-life care. Through its new grant program, Community-State Partnerships to Improve End-of-Life Care, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will award a total of $11.25 million over three years to up to 25 coalitions, most of which will receive either a 3-year project grant or a 1-year planning grant. The grants will support broad-based, multidisciplinary coalitions that tap citizens, health care professionals and policymakers to identify problems, make recommendations and build public support for practical policies, regulations and guidelines to improve care of the dying. Planning grant recipients will have the opportunity to apply for funding later to implement their plans.

Council Scoffs At Takeover Bid By Justin Blum
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, April 21, 2004; Page A01 D.C. Council members yesterday soundly rejected Mayor Anthony A. Williams's bid to gain control over the city's schools, with several saying that his management of other agencies gave them no confidence in his ability to fix the long-troubled system. The council voted 9 to 4 against a measure that would have turned the school board into an advisory panel and given Williams the power to hire and fire the superintendent. Council members then voted 11 to 2 to make the school board an all-elected panel after 2006, removing the mayor's power to appoint four of its nine members. Final votes are expected May 4. The outcome was a stinging setback for Williams (D), who had said that repairing the schools was key to his legacy and that he wanted to follow the example of New York, Chicago and other large cities where mayors assumed control over public education and were credited with sparking improvement. "I believe that once in our tenures as public officials, or maybe, if we're lucky, twice, we have an opportunity to really make a difference," Williams said at a hastily called news conference after the council action. "And I think the council today in its vote missed out in that opportunity."
