Coordinated School Health
Student, Family and Community Partnerships

family photoInvolvement of students, parents, community representatives, health specialists, and volunteers in schools provides an integrated approach for enhancing the health and well being of students both at school and in the community. School health advisory councils, coalitions, and broadly-based constituencies for school health can build support for school health programs. School administrators, teachers, and school health staff in all components actively solicit family and student involvement and engage community resources, expertise, and services to respond effectively to the health-related needs of students and families. Qualified professionals such as principals, teachers, and school health staff, in partnership with students, parents, and volunteers provide leadership in this area. FSSD values it’s relationship to the larger community and has partnered with many local agencies and community groups.  Most notable among the partnerships are the Emergency Medical Services, the Williamson County Health Department, Williamson Medical Center, The Guidance Center, Mercy Clinic, One Gen Away, Graceworks, Williamson County Parks and Recreation, GetFitTn and others.  For related links, please see the Department of Education’s Coordinated School Health website on Student, Family and Community Partnerships.
