Tennessee's Coordinated School Health Initiative

The Tennessee Department of Education works in collaboration with the Tennessee Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention to implement Coordinated School Health (CSH) in Tennessee. Based upon passage of the Coordinated School Health Improvement Act of 1999, Chapter 554 and the subsequent 2006 Public Chapter 1001, CSH was created and funded with state budget dollars to implement CSH to all school systems in Tennessee. Funds support the development of a local infrastructure to promote health, and wellness for all students and staff and thereby decrease barriers that prevent students from achieving their full academic potential.
