The School Health Index is a tool to assess your school’s health and safety policies and programs, and develop a plan for improvement. It was developed by CDC in partnership with school administrators and staff, school health experts, parents, and national nongovernmental health and education agencies. It is structured around the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model.
"The information is fairly clear and could be useful to teachers, parents, community members who want to participate in a School Health Improvement process."
"When you finish one of the videos, YouTube shows you more videos from the course, but not necessarily in order. Use the NEXT button every time to stay in order."
