Since the ASCD and CDC jointly released the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model in 2014, schools and organizations have begun working through issues related to effective implementation. In partnership with staff from New Haven Public Schools and the Connecticut State Department of Education, CSCH Steering Committee members and affiliates have been working to identify needed materials to guide action WSCC planning, implementation, and evaluation efforts.
To date, the CSCH team has produced a series of brief video modules and written practice briefs to explain the WSCC components and synthesize related evidence, as well as share examples of school initiatives and describe the resulting positive outcomes.

Additional projects underway include:
- WSCC Blueprint to guide action planning, implementation, and evaluation efforts that inform coordination of policies, processes, and practices related to school and child health and well-being. For further information, contact project lead Dr. Sandra Chafouleas.
- WSCC Policy Evaluation Tool, modeled from the WellSAT (http://www.wellsat.org/), to assess the quality of policies designed to apply the WSCC model in school districts. For further information, contact project leads Dr. Marlene Schwartz or Dr. Sandra Chafouleas
