The Healthy Schools Toolkit 101

Date: Thursday, November 14

Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET

Educators understand that supporting students’ physical, social, emotional, and cognitive health significantly influences academic outcomes. However, schools often need help identifying how to leverage their resources and infrastructure to deliver a comprehensive model of school health.

In response, researchers at Health Equity Works, an initiative housed at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, in partnership with health and education partners, co-developed a tool to help schools and school districts strategize to build healthier school communities that support the whole child.

In this webinar, Health Equity Works will introduce the Healthy Schools Toolkit, a research-informed tool that is grounded in the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model and that helps education leaders to understand:

  • The people who are key influencers and could be recruited to inspire others to integrate health and well-being into their school practices
  • The existing systems in their schools that help or hinder student health, well-being, and academic success
  • The aspirational messages about healthy schools that can be used to spark interest and buy-in throughout the school community

Join Dr. Jason Purnell of Health Equity Works for a webinar on Thursday, November 14 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET to learn more about how you can use the Healthy Schools Toolkit to leverage your people, systems, and messages to support your students’ learning and development.
