Pickett County Coordinated School Health
The Coordinated School Health model provides an evidence-based framework to address the needs of the whole child. Tennessee's Coordinated School Health program uses the Centers for Disease Control Model to address the following eight components: Comprehensive school health education; physical education and activity; nutrition; school health; school counseling, psychological and social services; healthy and safe environment; student, family, and community involvement in schools; and health promotion for staff. Tennessee leads the nation by providing a state-funded Coordinated School Health initiative in every school district.
Our system has a team composed of staff, parents and students for each component that meets quarterly to plan programs for our students and staff. Recently the Nutrition Team sponsored a Nutrition Event for classes in grades 1-4. Students kept food journals and learned about healthy eating. Each class that participated was eligible for a drawing for a $100 Walmart Gift Card for classroom supplies.
The winning class was Ms. Kim Stockton’s First Grade, pictured here. Alonna Bowers drew out her own class in the drawing.
