Coordinated School Health

Milan Special School District Coordinated School Health connects physical, emotional and social health with education through eight inter-related components.

This coordinated approach improves students' health and their capacity to learn through support of families, communities and school working together. Coordinated School Health works with many partners to address school health priorities.

The Office of Coordinated School Health (OCSH) was established by the Tennessee Department of Education in February 2001. The primary mission of the office is to improve student health outcomes as well as support the connection between good health practices, academic achievement and lifetime wellness.  The OCSH partners with the Tennessee Department of Health, Office of School Health. With the passage of T.C.A. Section 49-1-1002 in 2000, authorization and funding for CSH was established. Additional funding has been provided by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
