Trending Topic: CDC School Health Index

The CDC in  partnership with school administrators and staff, school health experts, parents, and national nongovernmental health and education agencies have developed the School Health Index (SHI). SHI is based on CDC’s research-based guidelines for school health programs, which identify the policies and practices most likely to be effective in reducing youth health risk behaviors. The SHI aims to:

  • Enable schools to identify strengths and weaknesses of health and safety policies and programs.
  • Enable schools to develop an action plan for improving student health, which can be incorporated into the School Improvement Plan.
  • Engage teachers, parents, students, and the community in promoting health-enhancing behaviors and better health.
