National Healthy Schools Collaborative Releases Ten-Year Roadmap

The COVID-19 pandemic has made clear how connected health and learning are. Districts cannot return to the pre-pandemic status quo which left millions of children and adults in unhealthy schools. 

The National Healthy Schools Collaborative’s Ten-Year Roadmap offers a bold, comprehensive and popular blueprint to create healthy schools over the next decade. AASA is happy to be part of the implementation to better schools across the country.

Informed by the real experiences of students, school staff and administrators, parents, and nonprofit organizations as well as successful policy experiments around the country,  the roadmap offers a bold and practical path forward. This is not just another report telling people in schools what they need to do. This is the beginning of a movement to build and sustain healthy school communities with real resources to get involved:  

  • If you are a district or school, take the NHSC Ten-Year Roadmap Integrated Assessment aligned with the roadmap to assess how healthy your district or school is 
  • If you are an education and health organization consider applying to become part of the NHSC to implement opportunities in the roadmap. 
  • If you are a family member, interested community member, or student advocate for Healthy Schools.
