Supporting Health and Wellness

August 30, 2019

Last month, the Healthy Schools Campaign released a new report that takes a look at how states are supporting SEL and student well-being under ESSA, which “highlights the importance of equitable access to quality education and the conditions that support student learning, and provides new opportunities for schools to support student success by improving student health and wellbeing.” The report “provides an update on how states have approached health and wellness in education policy and practice in response to the requirements and opportunities in ESSA” and “describes key sections of the law with the highest potential to impact student health, outlines current state efforts, highlights best practices and provides recommendations for advancing this work at the state and local level.”
