School Health Promotion Toolkit

School Health Services Program - Health Promotion
Students who are healthy and fit will come to school ready to learn. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the health status of students is strongly linked to their academic success and recommends coordinated school health programs to improve educational performance and the well-being of students as they become adults. The resources in this toolkit are designed to help increase health knowledge, attitudes and skills; increase positive health behaviors and outcomes; improve education outcomes; and improve social outcomes.

The School Health Promotion Toolkit is a resource developed by the Fairfax County Health Department in partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools.
