State Policies that Support Healthy Schools
In 2019, Child Trends partnered with the Institute for Health Research and Policy of the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC-IHRP), EMT Associates, Inc., and the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) to publish the first comprehensive policy analysis to explore codified state statutes and regulations covering each of the 10 domains of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) framework for healthy schools. This brief and the accompanying state profiles serve as an update to that seminal analysis, focusing on changes in policies that occurred from September 2017 (as covered in the prior report) to September 2019 and expanding our assessment of state policies to include those that do not appear in codified statutes and regulations (i.e., noncodified State Board policies, guidance documents, etc.).
