What is a Coordinated School Health Program?
Coordinated School Health (CSH) programs consist of ten (10) interactive components that assist students through the promotion of healthy behaviors. An effective, CSH program can improve academic performance, decrease absenteeism, increase the practice of good health habits and decrease health care costs. Schools can not do this alone the community must and should be involved in the CSH program.
