Coordinated School Health (CSH)

Coordinated School Health (CSH) is a collaborative effort between the North Dakota Department of Health and the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. CSH works with schools, local public health units, multiple state partners, and statewide organizations to improve the health and academic success of North Dakota's children through the implementation of CSH. North Dakota CSH provides consultation and technical assistance for schools and school nurses to use in organizing and managing school health and wellness initiatives. ND receives funding from CDC's Division of Adolescent and School Health to promote coordinated school health with an emphasis on physical activity, nutrition and tobacco use prevention (PANT).
