Coordinated School Health Programs
Portland Schools uses a coordinated approach to district wellness called the Coordinated School Health Programs
(CSHP). CSHP is an effective system designed to connect health with
education. This coordinated approach improves health and students’
capacity to learn through the support of families, communities, and
schools working together.
|The Coordinated School Health model includes:
- Comprehensive School Health Education
- Physical Education/Physical Activity
- School Health Services
- Nutrition Services
- Employee Wellness
- Physical Environment
- Healthy School Climates
- Family and Community Involvement
information about each component, including resources for educators and
parents, can be found in the tabs to the right. More information about
the supports and resources available to schools can be found in the PDF
file to the right.
Portland Public School’s Coordinated School Health Program is supported through competitive grant funding under the Healthy Maine Partnerships.
We employ a School Health Coordinator who is responsible for the
initiative. For more information, contact the School Health Coordinator
for the Portland Public Schools at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 842-5339.
School Board recognizes that a students’ readiness to learn is related
to his/her physical and psychological well being. The District is
committed to creating healthy school environments that allow students to
take full advantage of the educational programs offered at Portland
