Comprehensive School Community Health
Comprehensive School Community Health is “an internationally recognized framework for supporting improvements in students’ educational outcomes while addressing school health in a planned, integrated and holistic way” (JCSH, 2013).
In Saskatchewan, we have adopted a Comprehensive School Community Health approach to highlight the importance of community in supporting healthy students. School communities adopting a CSCH approach have a long-term plan to support student health and achievement. CSCH activities and policies within a school or school district motivate the whole school through actions that encompass four inter-related components:
- High Quality Teaching and Learning.
- Healthy Physical Environment.
- Supportive Social Environment.
- Community Engagement and Partnerships.
