Collaboration within the Context of the Healthy School Approach (HSA): The Case of a Disadvantaged Elementary School in Quebec
Rivard, Marie-Claude; Deslandes, Rollande; Beaudoin, Charlotte
Canadian Journal of Education, v34 n4 p158-176 2011
This case study focuses on the groundwork aiming at developing school-family-community collaboration in the deployment of the HSA in a low socio-economic status elementary school. Two theoretical models--the HSA and Hoover-Dempsey et al. (1997, 2010) models--guided the analysis of five discussion groups (N = 31) regarding their perceptions of the place of health in school and of parents' and educators' health related practices to support HSA deployment and to establish the pathway to a better school-family-community collaboration. The school is committed to health despite its low economic status. Encouragement, modeling and teaching are the perceived practices or actions. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table, and 1 footnote.)
