Download Promising Practices 2008/09

In late 2008 and early 2009, Project PA, a collaboration between the Pennsylvania Department of Education,
Division of Food and Nutrition, and the Penn State University Department of Nutritional Sciences, collected
“Promising Practices” submitted by Pennsylvania schools related to Coordinated School Health. Coordinated
School Health is an initiative of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which includes eight
components which work together to address students’ health needs and contribute to improvements in
health and learning. This manual includes descriptions of 51 of these “Promising Practices” that can be used
as models for implementing activities to improve students’ health and wellness. For more information about
