Health Education

A Coordinated School Health Program (CSHP) is an effective system designed to connect health (physical, social and emotional) with educational (cognitive and intellectual) programs. This coordinated approach to school health improves kids' health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and schools working together.

Health Education provides the academic focus of the CSHP, offering a sequenced curriculum of skills and knowledge of health topics to students from kindergarten through high school.
