The Coordinated School Health (CSH) connects physical, emotional, and social health with education through eight inter-related components. This coordinated approach improves students’ health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and schools working together. Coordinated School Health works with many partners to address school health priorities.

Although these components are listed separately, it is their composite that allows CSH to have a significant impact.

  • Physical Education/Activity and Wellness

  • Nutrition

  • Health Education

  • Health Services

  • Student, Family and Community Partnerships

  • School Staff Wellness

  • School Counseling, Psychological and Social Services

  • Healthy School Environment
