Coordinated School Health
Coordinated School Health (CSH) connects physical, emotional, and social health with education through eight inter-related components. This coordinated approach improves students' health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and schools working together. Coordinated School Health works with many partners to address school health priorities. Simply put, healthy students are better learners.

Mini golf reward program
The WCS Coordinated School Health program is encouraging elementary students to get outside and get active.
WCS elementary students can play a free round of mini golf at SOAR Adventure in Franklin. To be eligible, a student just has to show some sort of proof he or she attends a WCS elementary school like a school t-shirt or some other form of spirit wear. In addition, students can earn four more opportunities for free rounds of mini golf throughout the school year by earning an A on each report card.
The district kicked off this exciting new opportunity with a mini golf competition on September 28. Administrators and student representatives from each school teamed up to see who could get the lowest score, with Grassland Elementary coming in first place. More detailed information can be found on the News page of your student's elementary school website.
Tennessee’s Coordinated School Health Initiative
The Tennessee Department of Education works in collaboration with the Tennessee Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to implement Coordinated School Health (CSH) in Tennessee. Based upon passage of The Coordinated School Health Improvement Act of 1999, Chapter 554 and the subsequent 2006 Public Chapter 1001, CSH was created and funded with state budget dollars to implement CSH to all school systems in Tennessee. Funds support the development of a local infrastructure to promote health and wellness for all students and staff and thereby decrease barriers that prevent students from achieving their full academic potential.

Coordinated School Health Activity Bus
Loaded with lots of fun games and activities, the bus will travel to each elementary school in the district with the goal of getting students to be active and healthy.
