Schools across New York are changing how they fundraise—whether it’s to provide fun, family activities; to help community members recycle unwanted electronics; or to sell school promotional items—to make a positive impact in the community. Some of the most successful ideas are provided on this handout.

A Guide for Incorporating Health and Wellness into School Improvement Plans (2016)

The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) has released a new resource: A Guide to Incorporating Health and Wellness into School Improvement Plans.

The guide is designed to provide public health agencies and other education partners an understanding of improvement plans and their purpose and role in schools and districts.
