Coordinated School Health
School Health Clinic Information
Coordinated school health is an effective system designed to connect health (physical, emotional and social) with education. This coordinated approach improves students' health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and schools working together. The Office of Coordinated School Health works with many partners to address school health priorities.
The Coordinated School Health (CSH) model is a method of connecting health and learning that consists of eight inter-related components. This approach constitutes a systems change by improving students' health and their
capacity to learn through personal responsibility, and the support of families, communities and school.
The school-based health clinic inside JCT opened ten years ago, in 2009, thanks to a partnership between West Tennessee Healthcare and JMCSS.
Arlington Elementary and Community Montessori School both received the designation from Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
