Coordinated School Health
HISD strives to support students in all areas of health and wellness, in addition to helping them meet their academic goals. HISD utilizes the WSCC model in the area of coordinated school health.
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child, or WSCC model, is CDC’s framework for addressing health in schools. The WSCC model is student-centered and emphasizes the role of the community in supporting the school, the connections between health and academic achievement and the importance of evidence-based school policies and practices.
