Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Model
The education, public health, and school health sectors have each called for greater alignment, integration, and collaboration between education and health to improve each child's cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. Public health and education serve the same children, often in the same settings.
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) focuses on the child to align the common goals of both sectors.
The WSCC model expands on the eight elements of the Centers for Disease control and Prevention's (CDC) coordinated school health approach and is combined with the whole child framework. CDC and ASCD developed this expanded model -- in collaboration with key leaders from the fields of health, public health, education, and school health -- to strengthen a unified and collaborative approach designed to improve learning and health in our nation's schools.
What is SHAC?
SHAC is a school board appointed advisory group of individuals who represent different segments of the community. By law, a majority of the members must be persons who are parents of students enrolled in the district and who are not employed by the district. The CCISD SHAC is made up of parents, community members, students and school staff working together to improve the health of all students and families through coordinated school health programs.
