Schools play a crucial role in promoting the healthy minds and bodies of young people and helping them establish lifelong healthy behavior patterns. To support schools as they shape our nation’s young people, the CDC has created Training Tools for Healthy Schools: Promoting Health and Academic S..., which offers a national cadre of master trainers to provide workshops on using and implementing CDC's school health tools.
Workshops are open to anyone working on school health issues, including school administrators, health educators, physical educators, curriculum specialists, government agency staff and community volunteers. The trainings offer a systematic way to assess and improve school health policies and programs and also help you to revise current health or physical education curriculum. A workshop may help your community:
A limited number of free workshops on the School Health Index: A Self-Assessment and Planning Guide (SHI), Physical Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (PECAT), Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (HECAT), and CDC's School Health Guidelines to Promote Healthy Eating and Physical Act... are available.
Sign up today and make this school year the healthiest yet!
