  • Scanning Software-Purchasing scanning software to ease the data collection process when serving large numbers of children/youth for a school-based implementation, is an allowable expense.  To access  information and a free webinar, visit the following link: http://www.gravic.com/remark/.  Further questions can be directed to the EPISCenter at 814-863-2568.  Scanning software specifications are listed below:
    • Remark Office OMR
      • Compatible with copiers/scanners
    • Remark Office Classic
      • Compatible to be used with Scan Tron machines.

* Many of the EPISCenter pre/post surveys are available in a "fill in the bubble” format.


  • Verification of program fidelity by developer or designee.   PCCD funded sites are required to have the implementation quality of their program verified by the developer or designee in Year Two of funding.  At this time, please contact the EPISCenter LST Implementation Specialist to discuss the process and the needs of your site/school, as this will vary between implementations. 


  • Funding to hire a local evaluator at the site’s discretion.  The EPISCenter provides funded sites with a spreadsheet for calculation of measures for reporting outcomes to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.  Sites may consider identifying an evaluator for additional evaluation services, if desired.  These additional evaluations will not replace the EPISCenter’s data tool, however.
