DASH would like to congratulate our 11 pilot schools for completing Steps 1-3 of our Healthy School Communities Certification Pilot Project. Our schools have been working very hard in partnership with their regional Comprehensive School Health Facilitator. Pilot schools have now created a healthy school team, assessed their assets and needs, and chosen a priority health topic that is specific to their school community.
The priority health topics for year one of the pilot project have been identified as mental health, healthy eating, and physical activity. Great job everyone, keep up the fantastic work as you move on to Steps 4-6! For more information on DASH’s Healthy School Communities Pilot please visit our Current Initiatives.
