Like other public schools across
the nation, Colorado charter schools are faced with health challenges and
learning barriers related to the physical and mental well-being of their
students, families, and staff members. Addressing the health of your school
community ensures that your students can thrive, meet academic expectations,
and be equipped to make healthy choices throughout their lives.
The Colorado League of Charter
Schools offers access to the latest research, resources and tools related to
multiple facets of school health and wellness. In addition, the League provides
a list of potential partners and providers who are committed to K-12 school
health in the areas of nutrition, physical activity and education, general
health services, and emotional health services.
In key and critical ways, the
League acts as a "matchmaker” between accurate, current and reliable health
information and resources and its member charter schools. In today’s
data-overload and "research findings du jour” world, it’s more critical than
ever to ensure that your school has access to valid and reliable information as well as the resources necessary to build a healthier school environment for students, staff and families.
The League leverages findings from studies and charter school health and wellness
experiences to help other members provide everything from the healthiest meals
to the most effective emotional health support services.
The League connects
charter schools to practical tools, trainings, and individualized technical
support opportunities that are open to a diverse group of charter school
stakeholders school leaders, staff members (student services, wellness
coordinators, special education providers, physical education teachers and athletic coaches, and others), board members and parents. The League also provides a list of potential partners and service providers who are committed to K-12 school health in the areas of nutrition, physical activity and education, general health services, and mental health services. A list of federal and state programs related to school health is also available. (more...)
