To prove he wasn’t chicken!
Credit for this joke goes to Michele Rusnak of the Austin Independent School District. It was shared during a presentation on coordinated school health (CSH) programs at the American School Health Association (ASHA) conference last week. Coordinated school health is an eight-component system that, since its inception, has been expanded into the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model.
Austin ISD is a model of how a coordinated program can impact the health and wellness of students through teamwork and collaboration among faculty, staff, district personnel, and community resources. Physical activity is one important component of the WSCC model and AISD provided materials, resources, and services to promote physical activity opportunities for students throughout the school day. For more information on their program, see the AISD website.
