If you're part of a team writing a new school board policy or researching background information for the development of a school board policy on health related items you may want to take a look at the newly announced National School Board Association's web-based resource of Promising District Practices and policies database.
The website features a searchable database of local school district
successes in developing, implementing, and evaluating policies and
practices that address health risk behaviors and health promotion
issues. The stories are submitted by school districts and schools across
the country. While the current topics are limited to Coordinated School
Health Programs, Tobacco Use, Asthma, Healthy Eating, and Physical
Activity, these may be expanded in the future.
