Health and Wellness Initiative
Isabella Bird Community School , McAuliffe International School, Denver School of the Arts, and Northfield High School were named 2017 Healthy School Champions and received the $500 Excellence Award.
On March 3, 2017, 46 schools received the 2017 Healthy School Champion designation and were recognized for their efforts to create healthy environments and cultivate student learning. Schools are awarded based on their implementation of best practices in school health through an assessment tool called Smart Source, a narrative outlining their work, and letters of support.
Colorado Education Initiative Director of School Health Amy Dyett stated, “For the winning schools, health and wellness is embedded into the culture and systems. It’s about having an intentional investment to meet the needs of their students and staff in order to achieve academically.” The program has granted more than $300,000 in awards over the past seven years in the range of $300 to $7,500 per school.
