Title: School Health Index
Abstract: The School Health Index is a self-assessment planning guide that will enable you to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your school's policies and programs for promoting health and safety, develop an action plan for improving student health and safety, and involve teachers, parents, students, and the community in improving school policies, programs, and services.
Your school's results from using the School Health Index can help you include health promotion activities in your overall School Improvement Plan.
The School Health Index has two activities that are to be completed by teams from your school: the eight self-assessment modules and a planning for improvement process. It is designed for use at the school level. However, with appropriate adaptation, it could be used at the district level as well, especially if the district has only a few schools and those schools have similar policies and practices.
