Planned Approach to Healthier Schools (PATHS) is a multicomponent school program that aims to establish and sustain a social norm consistent with physical activity and healthy nutrition in the school community. The PATHS components include: (1) a professional development and wellness program for faculty and staff; (2) ongoing social-marketing research and a marketing campaign; (3) a parental awareness campaign; (4) the development of school environmental supports; and (5) an integrated physical activity and nutrition curriculum, which also functions as a school-wide health intervention. This article describes the PATHS curriculum.
