Wisconsin's Framework for Comprehensive School Health Programs: An Integrated Approach. Bulletin No. 97299.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Health and Social Services, Madison.
The Wisconsin Framework for Comprehensive School Health Programs is a multistrategy approach to address the entire range of youth risk behaviors and promote the health, well-being and positive development of students and other members of the school-community as an integral part of a school's overall mission. The framework is a collection of empirically supported strategies organized into six components: (1) healthy school environment; (2) curriculum, instruction and assessment; (3) pupil services; (4) student programs; (5) adult programs; and (6) family and community connections. This report is intended to help educators and other experienced education planners learn about the framework and its purposes, and understand why schools may wish to develop a framework that can assist them in defining their capacity to deliver services and instruction to all children around youth risk behaviors, health promotion, and youth development. The report describes the framework itself and its goals and orientations, then details each of the six components of the framework. Members of the state's Student Services/Prevention and Wellness Team are listed, as well as contact people at state cooperative educational service agencies. (Contains 61 references.) (JPB)
