Empowering Students and Staff Success Through Healthy School Environments!
The Kent County Coordinated School Health Program (KCCSHP) works with income-eligible schools in Kent County interested in improving the health of their students. With community agencies and individuals working together, schools are supported in their mission to promote healthy behaviors of students and create a healthy, positive learning environment.
KCCSHP partners support schools through:
1. Sending trained facilitators to lead school staff through the Healthy School Action Tool (HSAT), a free, online tool which helps schools assess their nutrition, physical activity, asthma management, violence and injury prevention, and tobacco free policies and environment.
2. Supplying access to local community resources to help schools implement their action plan.
3. Giving three years of direct support for action planning, implementation, and evaluation.
4. Providing up to date resources to develop sustainable and measurable environmental changes in their school building that offer consistent messages about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.
