About the WSCC Think About the Link Project

WSCC: Think About the Link is a project designed to facilitate school efforts in integrating health and learning. Schools can enhance their support systems by incorporating the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model in decision-making across academic, social, emotional, behavioral, and physical domains of functioning. Project materials guide work in coordination of policies, processes, and practices relevant to school and child well-being.

The WSCC model includes 10 domains – or gears – that work together in facilitating whole child well-being. Read our domain definitions.
