Currently, states around the country are working to develop state plans to implement the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA recognizes the need for schools to support the whole child and specifically acknowledges the importance of student health and school wellness. To help school health advocates and others take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to integrate health and wellness into education policy and practice, the Healthy Schools Campaign and the Alliance for Healthier Generation will be releasing Healthy and Ready to Learn: ESSA State Plans to Support Student Health and Wellness.

Healthy and Ready to Learn: State ESSA Plans to Support Student Health and Wellness provides an overview of the opportunities to incorporate health and wellness into ESSA, provides advice on how to navigate the state plan process and guidance on how to develop health promoting recommendations.

This webinar is an opportunity to learn about this important resource and connect with other advocates working to advance student health and school wellness through ESSA state plans.
