Explanation of Change from CSHP to WSCC Model

The Coordinated School Health (CSH) approach has been used nationwide to integrate health-promoting programs, policies, and practices in the school setting. The CSH approach has been expanded to the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model. This new model puts more emphasis on the psychosocial and physical environments and incorporates the growing role of community and family involvement. Furthermore, the WSCC model includes 10 components, including the splitting of two CSH components, Healthy and Safe School Environment and Family/Community Involvement, to create four distinct components.
