Coordinated School Health

     Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Model

                                              Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Model
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model is an expansion and update of the Coordinated School Health (CSH) approach. The WSCC model joins the components of CSH and the tenets of the whole child approach of the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD). This unification brings a strong collaborative approach to learning and health.

The WSCC model focuses its attention on the child, emphasizes a school-wide approach, and acknowledges learning, health, and the school as being a part and reflection of the local community.

Texas and Coordinated School Health Programs

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is required by law (Texas Education Code, Title 2, Subtitle G, Chapter 38, Subchapter A, §38.013-38.014) to make available to each Texas school district one or more coordinated school health (CSH) programs. Each program is designed to prevent obesity, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes in elementary school, middle school, and junior high school students. Each program must coordinate health education, including oral health education, physical education and physical activity, nutrition services, and parental involvement. For more information, visit TEA’s Approved Coordinated School Health Programs webpage.
