Health Is Academic: A Guide to Coordinated School Health Programs (Paperback)
There is a lot of concern these days about absenteeism, dropout rates, and discipline problems in our schools. But, did you know that a lot of problems are health related? A coordinated approach to school health is about more than keeping kids healthy. It's about improving schools by supporting students' capacity to learn. With expert contributions from over 70 leading professional associations, Health Is Academic covers the "eight components" designed to give students the knowledge and skills they need to deal with the problems they face in and out of school. The text authoritatively discusses: Health Education; Physical Education; Health Services; Nutrition Services; Counseling, Psychological, and Social Services; Healthy School Environment; Health Promotion for Staff; and Parent/Community Involvement.
