Curriculum Approval Process and Curriculum Fidelity

CalFresh Healthy Living, University of California and EFNEP have updated the protocol for the Nutrition Education Programs to request approval to use new curricula. The protocol was conceived between members of the Curriculum Committees and the CalFresh Healthy Living, University of California Evaluation Task Force. Curriculum Approval Process

In SNAP-Ed, use of evidence-based curricula helps us provide the most effective nutrition education interventions. Following the curricula as it is written ensures the quality of the interventions, however, sometimes a specific curriculum may not fit the needs of a given group of SNAP-Ed clients. The following tools are designed to help guide Local Implementing Agencies regarding acceptable levels of modifications. In addition there are tools to strengthen curriculum delivery.
