The health and well-being of people is critical to their lifelong learning and success.
Our district is committed to supporting the health and well-being of our school communities by supporting a comprehensive school health (CSH) approach. CSH is an internationally recognized framework for supporting improvements in students' educational outcomes while addressing school health in a planned, integrated and holistic way.
For a short explanation of CSH, check out this video.
