8 Components of Coordinated School Health

8 Components of Coordinated School Health

By definition all Coordinated School Health Components must work together to improve the lives of students and their families.  Although these components are listed separately, it is their composite that allows CSH to have significant impact.

  • Health Education: Kindergarten through high school health education curriculum that is sequential and developmentally appropriate, and that addresses physical, mental, emotional, and social dimensions.
  • Physical Education and Physical Activity: Physical education classes and physical activities that promote physical fitness, motor skills, social and personal.
  • Health Services: Services provided to students to appraise, protect, and promote health.
  • Nutrition Services: Access to a variety of nutritious  and appealing meals that accommodate the health and nutrition needs of all students and provides learning experiences in nutrition and health and links to nutrition-related community services.
  • Counseling, Psychological, and Social Services: Services provided to improve students’ mental, emotional, and social health. These services improve the health of the students and the health of the school environment.
  • Healthy School Enviornment: A school atmosphere supported by programs and policies that nurture positive behavior, assure safety, and promote a feeling of belonging and respect for all students, staff, and families. This component involves the physical and aesthetic surroundings, climate and culture of the school.
  • Staff Health and Wellness: Work-site health promotion programs that encourage and support staff in pursuing healthy behaviors and lifestyles.
  • Family and Community Involvement: Active participation of these groups in policy and program development and integration of community resources and service.
