Lake recognized as a Florida Healthy School District
TAVARES – Lake
County Schools has been named a 2016-2018 Florida Healthy School District.
The recognition is the result of the district's submission of the Florida Healthy School District Self-Assessment, a tool based on sustainable infrastructure, policy, programs, and
practices identified from national and state guidelines, best practices, and
Florida statutes. It was developed by the Florida Coordinated School Health
Partnership (CSHP) out of a desire to recognize and celebrate the hard work and
success of school districts related to physical, mental and social health of
students and staff. The assessment was written by school experts, evaluated,
piloted and field tested for three years before being released in 2009.
Since 2009 CSHP, in partnership
with Florida Action for Healthy Kids (FLAFHK), Florida Association of District
School Superintendents (FADSS) and Florida Healthy Kids Corporation has
recognized 47 districts for establishing a culture and climate that embraces
the Coordinated School Health approach to reduce and eliminate barriers to
learning and support academic achievement.
Lake County Schools
demonstrated its highest scores related to policies and processes in the areas
of Health Services, Nutrition Services and Education, and Employee Wellness,
and was recognized at the Bronze level.
