What is a Healthy School Team?
A Healthy School team is representative of the eight components of Coordinated School Health which include; Health Education; Physical Education/Activity; Nutrition, Health Services, Healthy School Environment ; School Counseling/Mental Health; Family/Community/Student Involvement; and Staff Health Promotion . Asking parents to be a member of the HST is an excellent way to engage parents in their child's health and facilitates academic success. The HST assists with the completion of the School Health Index and implementation of school based health/safety initiatives. The leader of the HST provides feedback about the health initiatives occurring in school as well as collecting data for the Tennessee Department of Education through the KCS Coordinated School Health Office.

2017-18 School Health Index
In an effort to reduce workload and collect information required by the Tennessee Department of Education, Healthy School Teams will complete the School Health Index by scoring Module 2: Health Education and providing the scorecard and Plan for Improvement to the CSH Office. For detailed instructions, HSTL should refer to the HSTL Resources.
