The report summarizes what was accomplished during the first year of funding and offers a picture of how communities across the state collaborated on the initiative. Twenty-three projects are described, representing 20 school districts which were awarded state grants. The selected projects included a strong community collaboration commitment and parent participation in designing or enhancing a comprehensive health education program. Following the project descriptions is a list of recommendations for project improvements at the local and state levels.
