School and District Level Actions
School and district actions activate change
Health Equity Works designed a process for school and district leaders to build healthy schools:
Identify and cultivate
a network of people within school communities who can be key influencers for healthier schools.
Map out systems
that help or hinder the mission for school health and then identify strategies to enhance pathways that work for healthier schools.
Identify the most effective messages
that inspire and accelerate members of the school community to advance school health.
Integrate proven policies
into the school culture that enhance health and well-being.
The toolkit was developed from research conducted within the St. Louis Public Schools District and the Normandy Schools Collaborative, a suburban school district encompassing 23 mostly high-needs communities.
