Comprehensive School Health Education

Overview

A planned, sequential PK-12 school health education program addresses the physical, mental, emotional and social dimensions of health and enables children and youth to establish and practice health-enhancing behaviors over a lifetime and become healthy and productive citizens. An effective health education curriculum is designed to motivate children and youth to maintain and improve their health, prevent disease, reduce health-related risk behaviors and develop and demonstrate health-related knowledge, attitudes, skills and practices. School health education is one component of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child approach and must be delivered by appropriately certified teachers.
