Coordinated School Health Program

What is a COORDINATED SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAM?

Coordinated School Health (CSH) is an integrated, systematic set of planned, sequential, school-affiliated strategies, activities and services designed to advance student academic performance and promote their optimal physical, emotional, social and educational development. It is coordinated by a multidisciplinary team that is accountable to the community for program quality and effectiveness. By addressing health-related issues, schools not only foster student's academic achievements, but also help to establish healthy behaviors that last a lifetime.
