Chicago Educator Webinar Series
The link between health and learning is clear: Healthy, active and well-nourished children are more likely to attend school, be ready to learn and stay engaged in class. Schools play an important role in supporting student health and wellness.
Please join Healthy Schools Campaign as we present a series of five webinars to discuss practical ways to make your school a healthier environment.
Schools play an important role in supporting student health and wellness. Studies document what teachers, parents and education leaders know: healthy students are more likely to attend school and are better able to focus in class, which ultimately leads to higher test scores and overall higher classroom achievement.
This webinar will help educators:
- Understand the requirements of CPS’ wellness policies aimed to improve student health
- Learn best practices for implementing policies
- Use the Healthy CPS Indicator as a guide to provide an opportunity for schools to think and plan strategically and address the needs of the whole child, incorporating health and wellness goals into education planning
