Roadmap to Healthy Schools
Implementing Coordinated School Health
Colorado has become a leader in implementing Coordinated School Health (CSH) programs.
In 2006, RMC Health, the Colorado Department of Education, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment formed a multi-agency collaborative. With funding from a variety of sources, this collaborative provided financial support and technical assistance for CSH efforts in Colorado districts and schools. In addition, responding to an identified need for a step-by-step guide for implementing CSH at the building level, the collaborative produced The Roadmap to Healthy Schools: The Colorado Model.
Across the state, there are now more than 215 school-level CSH teams, representing more than 20 school districts. The Colorado Health Foundation provides funding for Healthy Schools Colorado, currently active in ten school districts, and the Colorado Department of Education funds CSH in an additional nine districts. Other school teams receive funding through the Colorado Legacy Foundation or through LiveWell Colorado.
The Roadmap is user-friendly, based on best practices, and grounded in the experience of Colorado’s CSH teams.
