Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP)
Establishing healthy behaviors during childhood is easier and more effective than trying to change unhealthy behaviors during adulthood. Schools play a critical role in promoting health and helping children establish lifelong healthy behaviors. Research shows a link between health and academic success as well as other aspects of well-being. To have the most positive impact on health outcomes, schools, government agencies, community organizations, parents, and other community members must work together through a collaborative and comprehensive approach that utilizes the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) and Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) models.
