State and district leaders are responding to the need for policies to improve the nutrition and physical activity environments in schools. But just putting new policies in place is not enough—sustained support and attention to how well the policies are working are required to significantly impact nutrition and physical activity behaviors and reverse trends in childhood obesity.
This webinar will focus on Hawaii’s and Tennessee’s physical activity/physical education policies by using the “through-line” analytical method, an educational leadership model that states, school districts and schools can use to align policies, practices and actions related to school wellness. The program will feature the key leadership and learning factors necessary for successful policy implementation from the state policy level down to implementation at the district and school levels.
The webinar will feature:
