Healthy Schools Academy – A Collaborative Training of Trainers
February 14 - February 16
The Healthy Schools Academy is a collaborative Training of Trainers (ToT) hosted by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, the National Association of School Nurses, SHAPE America, and Springboard to Active Schools, in partnership with CDC Healthy Schools.
Join the Healthy Schools Academy partners for a 2.5 day ToT on February 13-15, 2019 at the Emory Conference Center in Atlanta, GA. All travel expenses for teams of three individuals from each of the 17 CDC-funded Healthy Schools Grantee states (including airfare, lodging, meals, and ground transportation) will be paid by the NGOs funded by National Collaboration to Support Health, Wellness, and Academic Success of School-Age Children (CDC RFA DP16-1601). States may request to send an additional individual as part of their team at the expense of the state (1801 Cooperative Agreement dollars may be used). These requests will be reviewed by the Healthy Schools Academy partners and CDC Healthy Schools, as space is available. All requests should be sent to Kate Holmes at [email protected].
The goal of the ToT is to provide state teams with training on CDC and NGO tools and resources to support implementation of Priority 1, Strategy 2 (Professional Development and Training) for Improving Student Health and Academic Achievement through Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Management of Chronic Conditions in Schools (CDC-RFA-DP18-1801).
At the conclusion of the Healthy Schools Academy, participants will be able to:
– Identify and apply evidence-based policies, practices, and programs to support school districts and schools related to physical activity and physical education, school nutrition environment and services, out of school time – healthy eating and physical activity, and school health services for managing chronic health conditions.
– Develop an action plan for conducting professional development in their state that addresses the strategies and topic areas covered in the Healthy Schools Academy, is supported through follow-up opportunities with the NGOs, and meets the expectations outlined in the Healthy Schools Academy letter of agreement.
– Network and learn from other Healthy Schools Grantees to enhance their work related to physical activity and physical education, school nutrition environment and services, out of school time – healthy eating and physical activity, and school health services for managing chronic health conditions.
