Bledsoe County Coordinated School Health

Welcome to the Bledsoe County Schools Office of Coordinated School Health

Bledsoe County Coordinated School Health

The Coordinated School Health (CSH) Mission is to improve student health outcomes as well as support the connection between good health practice, academic achievement, and lifetime wellness. The CSH model is a method of connecting health and learning that consists of eight inter-related components. This approach constitutes a systems change by improving students' health and their capacity to learn through personal responsibility, and the support of families, communities and school.  The eight components include: health education, health services, counseling, psychological and social services, nutrition, physical education/physical activity, school staff wellness, healthy school environment and student/parent/community involvement.

"I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go." -Rachel Scott
