New Tools to Support Students’ Health and Learning

The American School Health Association, Council on Administrative Support for School Health and the National School Boards Association have released two documents that outline actions that School Administrators and School Boards can take to support a coordinated approach to health.

What School Administrators Can Do to Enhance Student Learning by Supporting a Coordinated Approach to Health

What School Boards Can Do to Enhance Student Learning by Supporting a Coordinated Approach to Health

Schools that adopt a coordinated approach to planning and problem-solving to meet students’ needs are more likely to position students for success in school and throughout their lifetimes. For more information go to: www.nsba.org/schoolhealth or www.ashaweb.org/Administrators.




Students Taking Charge

Students across the country are putting their passion for eating right, being active and living healthy into making their schools healthier places. Students Taking Charge is available nationwide to all high schools at www.StudentsTakingCharge.org.



Empower Youth to Speak Up and Take Action Against Big Tobacco

Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to speak up and take action against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events from coast to coast. Teachers, youth leaders, or health advocates can organize events and mobilize students to raise awareness about the problems of tobacco use in schools or communities. All successful events require extensive planning. The 2011 Kick Butts Day Guide has ideas and timelines that will help you plan for a successful Event. Download the 2011 guide now.
