Coordinated School Health



Increase health knowledge, attitudes, and skills

Increase positive health behaviors and health outcomes

Improve education outcomes

Improve social outcomes



Research shows that healthier students are better learners. Health-related problems play a major role in limiting motivation and the ability to learn. As recommended by the CDC, the Coordinated School Health model is an effective strategy for improving the health of students and can encourage long-term wellness and promote academic success.

The model below shows the levels of influence on students’ health. It also demonstrates how the school corporation, in addition the community at large, has a role to play in improving the health and well being of our students. To improve school health and wellness, we must work to make sure that schools’ policies, practices, and programs are sending consistent messages to students and staff to ensure an environment that best promotes health, and therefore, learning!
