Creating a Healthy School

Creating healthier schools support students to develop healthy behaviors, which can enhance student achievement. Comprehensive, strong school health policies with improvements to the physical environment have been successful in helping schools develop sustainable, healthy school environments. Developing a coordinated school health approach is beneficial for all involved: students, families, school staff and community partners.  

The Health Department works with Northern Kentucky schools on school wellness policy change and offers technical assistance on school health environmental change.
