Seitz, Andrea; And Others
This guide, designed for principals, on-site leaders or administrators, describes the implementation of the "Actions for Health" series, a comprehensive elementary school (Grades K-6) instructional program for health education. The guide is organized into four sections. The first section, "The Principal's Role," describes the steps a principal is advised to take to get the program going. Section 2, "The Program," outlines curriculum content and emphases for each grade level, lesson elements, and teachers' responsibilities. Section 3, "Home and Family Involvement," discusses types of family and community involvement, benefits of such involvement, and improving the school's family and community involvement program. Section 4, "What Is a Comprehensive School Health Program?" outlines the components of a comprehensive school health program and the relationship between health and learning. Six appendixes provide the following additional materials: scope and sequence for "Actions for Health," an overview of "Actions for Health" by level, a list of involving families letters, a family night agenda, newsletter inserts, and a fitness plan for the principal.
