A preview of an upcoming National School Boards Association (NSBA) publication on comprehensive school health programs explores 4 components of school health programs: (1) board policy; (2) classroom instruction; (3) health services; and (4) healthy school environments. Descriptions of successful school health programs at Frontier Central School District in Hamburg, New York, and at Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, New York, are given, and obstacles related to teacher training, community and administrator support, program evaluation development, and the availability of resources are examined. A separate section offers 12 recommendations from the "Journal of School Health" for effective health management in schools at the local level, information on a guide and Comprehensive School Health Survey Database being developed by NBSA, and a contact for additional information on the database.
