Coordinated School Health

The Coordinated School Health Program (CSHP) is a partnership between the Department of Health and OSPI that seeks to ensure healthy schools and healthy, successful students by coordinating effective policies and programs, and encouraging school, community and family involvement through shared information and communication.

Washington's CSHP is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  According to the CDC, a coordinated school health approach brings together school administrators, teachers, other staff, students, families, and community members to assess health needs; set priorities; and plan, implement, and evaluate school health program activities.

Coordinated School Health focuses on integrating efforts across eight interrelated components:

  • Nutrition services.
  • Physical education.
  • Health education.
  • Health services.
  • Mental health and social services.
  • Healthy and safe school environments.
  • Health promotion for school staff.
  • Family and community involvement.
