The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) has released a new resource: A Guide to Incorporating Health and Wellness into School Improvement Plans.School improvement plans provide a systematic opportunity to address the needs of the whole child, incorporating physical, social, emotional and/or behavioral health priorities into schools. The guide is designed to provide public health agencies and other education partners an understanding of improvement plans and their purpose and role in schools and districts. It outlines opportunities to incorporate health and wellness-related goals and aligned activities into the improvement planning process, and highlights useful examples from a state, district and schools that have done it.
