Coordinated School Health

Coordinated School Health (CSH) is an effective system designed to connect health (physical, emotional and social) with education. This coordinated approach improves students' health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and schools working together. The Office of Coordinated School Health works with many partners to address school health priorities.

The Coordinated School Health (CSH) model is a method of connecting health and learning that consists of eight inter-related components. This approach constitutes a systems change by improving students' health and their capacity to learn through personal responsibility, and the support of families, communities and school.

By definition all Coordinated School Health components work together to improve the lives of students and their families. Although these components are listed separately, it is their composite which allows CSH to have significant impact. A list of definitions of each component is available in printable format.
