Host: The National Association of State Boards of Education
Leadership for Healthy Communities, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
The podcast recording, presentation slides and chat transcripts from the webinar can be found in the "Archived Presentation" section of this website.State and district leaders are responding to the need
for policies to improve the nutrition and physical activity
environments in schools. But just putting new policies in place is not
enough—sustained support and attention to how well the policies are
working are required to significantly impact nutrition and physical
activity behaviors and reverse trends in childhood obesity.
This webinar will focus on Hawaii’s and Tennessee’s physical
activity/physical education policies by using the “through-line”
analytical method, an educational leadership model that states, school
districts and schools can use to align policies, practices and actions
related to school wellness. The program will feature the key leadership
and learning factors necessary for successful policy implementation
from the state policy level down to implementation at the district and
the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
the "through-line" education model to align policies, practices, and actions related to physical activity/physical
education and nutrition.
- Understand the reciprocal accountability needed to improve and align strategies
and actions between state, district, and school efforts to improve student
successful models for improving physical activity/physical
education that efforts from state policy to classroom practices.
