Stakeholders Collaboration to Improve Student Health
Healthy students are better learners
Stakeholders Collaboration to Improve Student Health was established in 2003 to remove health-related barriers to learning and to improve student health in Chicago Public Schools (CPS), the nation's third largest school district.
A network of more than 300 organizations and 1,000 individuals, Stakeholders Collaboration worked to improve student health in CPS by:
- Coordinating community health programs and services in schools for students, staff, and parents. Most programs are free and cover a wide range of health topics including chronic disease, first aid and safety, nutrition and physical activity, and social/emotional health.
- Addressing systems and policy issues to create opportunities for healthier students.
- Offering educational and networking opportunities for community partners and school personnel.
