8 Components of Coordinated school health

The Eight (+ 2) Components of Coordinated School Health 

Coordinated School Health commonly consists of eight components that encompass all aspects of the school environment. The components interact to function as a unified system and can become a theme for the entire school. In 2016 two more components were added: family engagement and community involvement. The reason was to strengthen a unified and collaborative approach designed to improve learning and health in our nation’s schools.

These components incorporate: 

  • Development of cognitive skills
  • Development of policies that support a positive psychosocial and hazard-free environment
  • Families and communities in promoting the well-being of youth
  • Opportunities for staff members to foster their own wellbeing
