Promoting and supporting school settings

One strategy of the HSHS project is the Health Promoting School (HPS) Coordinator Initiative which provides partial funding to 16 HPS Coordinator positions at the School District level. Through this initiative, IH aims to promote and support ‘Health Promoting Schools’ settings within School Districts as defined by the widely recognized pillars of Comprehensive School Health.
