How does the Fourth R  work within Alaska?

The Fourth R has been adapted for use in Alaska, the most recent of which includes the Fourth R Alaska Grade 9 version which is an Alaskan-relevant curriculum containing 21 lessons. To-date 53 schools have received Fourth R curricula materials, with over 100 school staff and 84 community partners throughout Alaska have been trained to teach the Alaska Fourth R Healthy Relationship Program for grades 7-9 in their schools. In addition, four Alaska-based Master Trainers have been certified. It is not recommended to teach the Fourth R without being trained.

Evaluating The Fourth R in Alaska

In 2011-2012, ANDVSA staff worked closely with Strategic Prevention Solutions (evaluator) and the Fourth-R collaborative to pilot the Fourth R evaluation. Seven high schools participated in cohort 1 of the evaluation project (Kodiak, Bethel, Kotzebue, Barrow, Thunder Mountain, Juneau Douglas, and Valdez), with 3 schools implementing the Fourth R curriculum and 4 schools participating as comparison schools.

In year 2 (2012-2013 school year), Cohort 1 follow-up data will be collected and entered. High schools participating in Year 2 data collection as part of Cohort 2 are: Kodiak, Bethel, Kotzebue, Cordova, Dillingham, Barrow, Wrangell, Kenai Central, Soldotna, and Homer.
