Quest for Healthy Schools

Quest for Healthy Schools supports schools in improving nutrition and physical activity policies, systems, environments, and practices. Live Well Alabama is teaming with Alliance for a Healthier Generation and also local schools to help Alabama schools become healthier places to learn. This statewide effort uses a seven-step process:

Engage

  • Identify, recruit and assemble a diverse group of school administrators, teachers, staff, parents, and community members as a School Wellness Committee.

Assess

  • Complete the Alliance for a Healthier Generation Healthy Schools Program School Wellness Assessment during two School Wellness Committee meetings.

Plan

  • Support the School Wellness Committee in utilizing strengths and areas for improvement to develop a School Wellness Action Plan including three achievable goals.

Implement

  • Involve all stakeholders in taking action.

Evaluate

  • Maintain contact with School Wellness Committee to document progress and address challenges. At the one-year anniversary of the School Wellness Action Plan, repeat the Alliance for a Healthier Generation Healthy Schools Program School Wellness Assessment.

Celebrate

  • Encourage continued progress by also highlighting successes and rewarding stakeholders.

Sustain

  • Continuously identify new or ongoing strengths and areas for improvement to update the School Wellness Action Plan.
