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 project represents CSCH partnerships with colleagues from the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, New Haven Public Schools and the Connecticut State Department of Education.
WSCC in Policy
Modeled from the WellSAT, the WellSAT WSCC offers a comprehensive tool for evaluating school policies. WellSAT WSCC items within each WSCC domain reflect the federal law (when applicable), the current evidence base, and best practices from professional organizations.
