A Coordinated School Health Program maximizes a school's positive interaction among health education, physical education, health services, nutrition services, counseling/psychological/social services, health school environment, health promotion for staff, and family and community involvement. The purpose of this semester project is for undergraduate health education students to: (1) explain the Coordinated School Health Program; (2) assess local schools' health programs and policies using the School Health Index; (3) develop a School Health Improvement Plan; and (4) present their findings and recommendations for improving their schools' physical activity, nutrition, tobacco prevention, asthma, and safety policies and programs.
