Community and Parent Involvement

The Coordinated School Health program is supported on three different levels:

  1. Advisory Council: Staff, parents, and community members representing all eight components of Coordinated School Health recommend policies and programs and also provide advice for the Coordinator of School Health.
  2. Staff Coordinating Council: Staff members from each school seek to maximize coordination, resources, services, and funding.
  3. Healthy School Team (one per school): The principal, teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members assess needs and oversee planning and implementation of school health efforts at the school site.

Blount Benefits

Blount BEneFITs is the Community Health Initiative action team committed to reducing childhood obesity and promoting physical activity. The team partners with local schools to create and implement wellness policies, promote awareness of healthy lifestyle choices across all generations and encourage businesses to establish wellness programs.
Through community collaborations, the team has provided leadership in addressing health concerns associated with an overweight population while focusing on the obesity epidemic in children and youth. As part of this effort, Blount BEneFITs created a Recreational Resource Guide for Blount County to help families easily access local recreational and wellness information.
