Welcome to the School Staff Wellness component of Coordinated School Health. This section includes some Coordinated School Health pilot site success stories an article on Simple Steps for School Staff Wellness and a list of School Staff Wellness resources.
Health promotion for staff includes opportunities for school staff to improve their health status through activities such as health assessments, health education and health-related fitness activities. These opportunities encourage school staff to pursue a healthy lifestyle that contributes to their improved health status, improved morale, and a greater personal commitment to the school's overall coordinated health program. This personal commitment often transfers into greater commitment to the health of students and creates positive role modeling. Health promotion activities have improved staff productivity, decreased absenteeism and reduced health insurance costs.
