Please note: The Healthy School Program is currently paused due to COVID-19. We will provide updates when we are able to resume in the future.
The goal of the Healthy School Program is to increase health knowledge, attitudes and skills, increase positive health behaviors and outcomes and improve education and social outcomes. The four key focus areas include physical activity, nutrition, mental health and substance abuse. The program was developed specifically for Monroe County schools by capitalizing on the resources and assistance that community partners are able to provide. Schools were required to form a Coordinated School Health Team that met at least two times during the year to discuss wellness programs and policies and implement health improvement activities for students and staff.
This program is being coordinated by the Monroe County Building Healthy Communities Coalition.
