About DCSD Healthy Schools

The Healthy Schools department in DCSD believes that healthy and happy students perform better. Our department helps create positive learning environments by partnering with Healthy Schools/Wellness Leads at school sites to build School Health Improvement Plans (SHIPs).  Our work is based on the Whole School, Community, Child (WSCC) model, which defines a framework for how best to meet the needs of the whole child through coordination of school professionals, families and the community.

Examples of SHIPs:

  • Mindfulness at Douglas County High School, Plum Creek Academy, Rocky Heights Middle School, Mesa Middle School and Northeast Elementary
  • All-School Morning Movement at Mountain View Elementary
  • Student-Led Health Teams at Sage Canyon, Buffalo Ridge, Coyote Creek, Fox Creek, Roxborough Primary
  • Physical Activity Breaks at Arrowwood, Heritage, and ThunderRidge High School
  • Healthy Snacks at Pine Grove and Pine Lane

Research proves that students who work in healthy learning environments
do better academically, socially, and are more engaged.
Let’s make it happen together!
