    Do you have tools that help you encourage creating a healthy school or district? Are those tools flexible enough to meet the specific needs of schools in your community? The Healthy Schools Toolkit is a new resource designed to help educators build healthy schools from the inside out to ensure all students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

    Begin the journey toward healthy schools today by downloading the Healthy Schools Toolkit.

    The Healthy Schools Toolkit is informed by research with two school districts in the St. Louis region to uncover how people, embedded in school systems, and armed with the right messages can make school health an actionable priority. One of the clear insights was this: there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the complex issues schools face. With this principle in mind, this toolkit was designed so that schools and districts can tailor it to meet their specific needs. You can choose which tools to use based on the resources and time you have and information you need.

    The Healthy Schools Toolkit was developed by Health Equity Works, a research-based initiative in the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, as part of Together for Healthy and Successful Schools, an initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. To learn more about the toolkit and the initiative, visit the project website.

    Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Opportunity Atlas tracks the outcomes of 20 million Americans from childhood to their mid-30s in all 70,000 census tracts with the ability to analyze findings by race, gender, and income. In the past, we could measure neighborhood wealth and poverty at a given moment, but never before could we see how early childhood experiences can influence income into adulthood.
