Using Policy to Create Healthy Schools: Resources to Support Policymakers and Advocates

This issue brief analyzes the alignment of state statutes and regulations with the Whole School, Whole Community, and Whole Child (WSCC) model that is developed by Centers for Disease Control and ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development). It includes a national overview as well as state-by-state profiles of how policy reflects the ten domains of social-emotional-physical health of children, including recent issues of concern like childhood obesity and bullying. This resource is focused on school policy, and can inform state system planners on afterschool as they collaborate with schools.
