As part of this study, our team will travel to schools in Fairfax on several occasions over the next 3 years, to conduct "digital imagery assessments" of students' lunches using photography methods. The first ratings will occur in February and April, 2019, with a total of 6 rating days this spring semester. The specific dates are still to be determined, although we are seeking your initial availability for a range of dates on this form.
Ratings occur at lunch, thus generally you will be at the schools from 10am until 1:30/2pm.
Requirements: -successfully pass a background check to permit entry into schools;
