SPARK Supports Safe & Healthy Students
thru the

Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Model

 

SPARK researchers and educators have spent years developing and field-testing the best approaches and resources to support Safe & Healthy Students. We are proud to expand our resources to support the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Model.

The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model expands on the eight elements of CDC’s coordinated school health approach and is combined with the whole child framework. CDC and ASCD developed this expanded model—in collaboration with key leaders from the fields of health, public health, education, and school health—to strengthen a unified and collaborative approach designed to improve learning and health in our nation’s schools. Click Here to learn more.

The new WSCC model consists of 10 interactive components. Schools by themselves cannot—and should not be expected to—solve the nation’s most serious health and social problems. However, schools can provide a perfect setting for this collaborative approach to health and education.

We have collected free and paid resources that we have found to be effective and outstanding for each of the 10 components of the WSCC model. This intends to be a living-and-breathing site to help your school or community organization find relevant resources to support the health and wellbeing of the children you serve. Simply click on the selected area of interest on the graphic and you will be directed to the resources. Additional information is also provided below.

To understand the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model, CDC created “Virtual Healthy School” an interactive tool that shows you how components of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model can be integrated into your school.

SPARK believes that two desirable outcomes of effective WCSS programs are:

  1. Environmental Change: How do we create environments that foster healthy eating, offer myriad physical activity opportunities, and facilitate consistent practice of wellness pursuits? What resources are there to help us?
  1. Behavior Change: Within those environments, individuals are faced with choices every minute of the day. After basic knowledge is disseminated (i.e., eat less, move more, get inoculated, etc.) what efforts are made to teach people the skills they need to practice healthful behaviors on and off campus? What resources are there to help us?

Featured Resources:

  1. Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP)
    • A Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) is a multi-component approach by which school districts and schools use all opportunities for students to be physically active, meet the nationally-recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day, and develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be physically active for a lifetime. Click Here to learn more on the CDC website.
    • SPARK provides research-based physical activity and physical education programs for Early Childhood Education, K-12 Physical Education, Classroom Activity & Recess, and After School Programs to help schools provide at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
