The YCS board passed a resolution to support the formation of a districthealth Coordinated School Health Team. 

The team completed three modules of the Healthy Schools Action tool and currently is working to revise the YCS student wellness policy to promote a healthy school environment, nutrition, counseling, psychological and social services.

YCS has the only district-wide CSH team in the state. The vision of YCS is to create a first choice cradle-to-career system. In order to achieve the district’s primary mission of education and academic achievement, students and staff need to be physically, mentally and socially healthy.
