Parents: Please Give Us Your Input on Student Health and Wellness Programs
DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students
Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices.
As part of this process, we would like your input. Please complete this survey (DCSD Creating Healthy Schools Planning Grant - Parent Survey) by November 30.
Our goal is to enhance the amazing health initiatives currently in our schools, and develop more opportunities to improve students’ overall well-being. Districts throughout Colorado are also doing this work, as the link between student health and success in academics and life is well studied.
If you would like more information, please contact Laurie LaComb, DCSD Healthy Schools Coordinator at: lllacomb[at]dcsdk12[dot]org or Lisa Kantor, Director, Health, Wellness, and Prevention at lekantor[at]dcsdk12[dot]org.
