In its four years, Active Schools (formerly Let’s Move! Active Schools) has enrolled almost 23,000 K-12 schools serving over 12 million students. Active Schools had heeded the call to make it easier for schools to provide an active school environment â?? one that provides at least 60 minutes of physical activity in day â?? through before, during and after school programs. The supports provided to schools, through 43 national health, education and private sector partner organizations, have included evidence-based resources, training, technical assistance, grants, and a school improvement journey incentivized by progress rewards and a national award. In recent months, the Active Schools collaborative conducted an in-depth strategic planning process facilitated by an expert firm which has led us to a transition from a focus on program-level change to systems and policy change as well. To accomplish our strategic objectives, Active Schools will be engaging a broader base of allies, both partner organizations and individual champions. Public health professionals, and those they reach, will be an important part of this work. This presentation is an overview of the strategic plan and an invitation to join the Active Schools movement! Click here to register
