Using Policy to Create Healthy Schools: Tools for State Policymakers

Earlier this year, NASBE launched the State Policy Database on School Health, an online library of all existing state statutory and regulatory language on student health aligned to components of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model.

On Friday, March 29, join us for a special webinar hosted by Child Trends to learn how state policies can help educators build healthy schools. Presenters will provide a tour of the new NASBE database and discuss how current state statutes and regulations address mental health, school discipline, and other factors influencing school health, and how a new trauma-informed policy framework can help policymakers create learning environments that support all students. Dr. Jay Barth, chair of the Arkansas State Board of Education, will also share his perspective on the role of policy in creating healthy school environments.
