SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title--Evaluation of a New Child Pedestrian Curriculum.
    Type of Review--Regular.
    OMB Clearance Number--None.
    Form Number--NHTSA Forms 1215, 1216, and 1217.
    Respondents--All K-5 students in two test schools and two 
comparison schools will be surveyed. The project will conduct a survey 
of parents or other student caregivers for both the test and comparison 
schools. Only one caregiver per student will complete the survey. An 
Internet-based survey of all instructors and administrators at the test 
and comparison schools is included.
    Estimated Number of Respondents--2,000 students; 2,000 caregivers; 
200 instructors and school staff.
    Estimated Time per Response--5 minutes per student survey; 5 
minutes per caregiver survey; 5 minutes per instructor/staff survey.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours--516.67 hours (total for the 
study).
    Frequency of Collection--Student surveys will take place twice; 
once before curriculum implementation and once after implementation is 
complete. Caregiver and instructor/staff surveys will take place once--
after curriculum implementation.
    Abstract--Schools and broader communities around the country have 
been working to foster a generation of healthy, active children. 
Children and adults alike are being encouraged to walk as a way to get 
some of the physical activity we all need. Schools have taken up the 
challenge to help equip students with the skills they need to be safe 
pedestrians throughout their lifetimes. The National Highway Traffic 
Safety Administration (NHTSA) developed a new Child Pedestrian Safety 
Curriculum to teach and encourage safe pedestrian behaviors for 
students at the elementary school level (grades K-5). The overall goal 
of the curriculum is to aid elementary age school children in 
developing age appropriate traffic safety knowledge and practical 
pedestrian safety skills. The curriculum is organized into five lessons 
that target key areas of pedestrian safety and are designed to meet 
national learning standards. The participating schools are located in 
the State of North Carolina because North Carolina included the NHTSA 
curriculum as part of its Let's Go NC pedestrian and bicycle safety 
school curriculum.
    The study has two objectives: (1) to evaluate how implementation of 
the curriculum is achieved by schools, instructors, and caregivers as a 
means of developing best practice guidance; and (2) to assess the 
effectiveness of the curriculum in instilling correct knowledge and 
behaviors in young pedestrians. To achieve these objectives, the study 
is conducting in-person oral surveys of students, a paper-and-pencil 
self-report survey of the students' caregivers, and an Internet-based 
survey of instructors and other staff at two schools implementing the 
curriculum and two similar comparison schools in the same school 
district that are not implementing the curriculum. The study will also 
collect behavioral observations of students to determine if behaviors 
have changed relative to the implementation of the curriculum. No 
personal information will be collected that would allow any respondent 
to be identified.
    Comments Are Invited On: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department of Transportation, including whether the information 
will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate 
of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance 
the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; 
and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology. A comment to OMB is most 
effective if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication of this 
notice.

    Authority:  44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)
