Montana Health Enhancement...An Expanded Concept: Assessment and Planning.
Montana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Helena.
Comprehensive health enhancement programs (CHEPs) are a curricular area required by new Montana accreditation standards. The curriculum combines the disciplines of health and physical education into an integrated, holistic, health-oriented program. A CHEP incorporates an expanded concept of health services--healthy school environment, employee wellness and assistance programs, and other programs and services outside the classroom. This assessment and planning manual helps schools and communities create or improve their CHEPs using the "Expanded Health Enhancement Grid." The grid offers a framework for identifying and assessing current efforts supporting the program and for planning strategies to enhance the health and well-being of students and the entire community. The manual identifies 9 components within 10 concept areas that define the broad scope and coordinated approach of the CHEP and provides a 5-step process for using the grid. Six appendixes provide: components of an expanded health enhancement program with questions and suggestions; a blank grid; a grid with sample questions; a grid analysis form; an action plan; and information on establishing a CHEP and wellness advisory committee.
