Health eTools for Schools
Helping schools create healthier students
Federal and state mandates charge schools with raising health awareness among our kids and teaching them the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices. However, lack of funding can make it tough for schools to meet these requirements.
That’s why we created Health eTools for Schools. This unique, Web-based program is available to any school in the five-county Philadelphia region and is designed to promote student wellness and combat childhood obesity.
Promoting Wellness: How Health eTools for Schools Helps
The Health eTools program provides extensive online resources and interactive tools to help school staff, administrators, nurses, and parents to:
- measure, report, and record changes in student health;
- create healthier learning environments through better nutrition and physical activity planning for students;
- improve student attitudes and knowledge regarding nutrition and physical fitness;
- develop wellness policies and implement strategies that help schools meet federal and state wellness requirements.
