Texas School Health Program

School Bus and Child

The Texas School Health Program envisions a Texas where all children are healthy, ready to learn, and prepared to make healthy lifelong choices.  Our mission is to meet the health services and health program needs of Texas children through schools. Current research indicates that by addressing young people’s health, schools can improve student performance.  There is mounting evidence that when schools take action to address health needs of students, they can also meet performance goals and alleviate financial constraints.
