Vision

Healthier kids make better students.
Better students make healthier communities.

Mission

The Safe and Healthy Schools Bureau believe that ALL students can become successful and responsible individuals who value and choose an active and healthy lifestyle.

Through leadership and teamwork, the Bureau advocates and provides support for schools and families to implement school health programs, and health and nutrition services.   Through intra/inter and community agency collaboration, the Bureau works to promote healthier schools by providing professional development, technical assistance and resources to local education agencies.   Schools are able to develop, implement and evaluate school health programs and activities, designed to improve instruction and increase student learning.   Health-promoting schools become high-achieving schools, which is based on the philosophy that “healthy kids make better students and better students make healthier communities”.
