Coordinated School Health encourages healthy lifestyles, provides needed supports to at-risk students and helps to reduce the prevalence of health problems that impair academic success.
Coordinated School Health is an effective approach designed to connect health (physical, emotional and social) with learning. CSH improves children’s health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and the schools working together.
The involvement of parents, families and community is the glue that binds the CSH. Full involvement of these entities as partners in the educational process provides valuable input, increases the commitment of all partners and ensures positive educational and health outcomes.
