Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC), an expansion of Coordinated School Health

  • The San Juan Unified School District Coordinated School Health Council (CSHC) began in 2006. In Spring of 2017, the CSHC became the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Council. The goal is to enable San Juan Unified School District students to become healthy, successful students at school and contributing members in their communities. This approach features an expansion on the eight interrelated components of the CSHC: health education; physical education; school health services; school nutrition services; school counseling, psychological, and social services; a healthy school environment; school-site promotion of health for staff by adding family engagement and community involvement. The WSCC puts the child at the center of the model, emphasizing the interdependent relationship between learning and health with a greater integration, alignment and collaboration between health and education with the goal of maximizing each child's cognitive, physical, social and emotional wellbeing.

    For a more detailed explanation, refer to CDC on the WSCC model.

    The WSCC may consist of District staff, community representatives, students, and parents. The Council revamped the District Wellness Policy BP5030 in 2017 in response to federal and state regulations. The WSCC continues to meet to share information about student health and resources.

    Membership is open to students, parents, staff, and community members. Specifically, the Council is seeking elementary, middle, and high school principals, physical education teachers, students, and parents to join the WSCC.
