What is Coordinated School Health

A coordinated school health program (CSHP) is an effective system designed to connect health with education. This coordinated approach to school health improves students' health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities, and schools working together.

Health is Academic

Healthy students learn better and health youth are likely to become healthy adults. the Carnegie Council on Adolescent Development states, " Students who are hungry, sick, troubled or depressed cannot function well in the classroom, no matter how good the school." The link between health and education is obvious and necessary. Working together, we strive to ensure that all students succeed and become knowledgeable, responsible, caring and healthy adults.
