In order to advance the common goal of improving social, health, and academic outcomes for all students, coordinated efforts that integrate multiple components of healthy school environments are needed. This continuing education course, developed using information from Child Trends, addresses The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model that illustrates the interconnected nature of 10 elements of a healthy school environment, and how policymakers can best implement this model. Study findings evaluating how to better integrate the WSCC framework in policy are presented from the perspectives of state policymakers, educators, and students.
