 Success stories SANTA CLARA
Santa Clara Unified School District has identified eight components
of coordinated school health that contribute to student academic
1. Nutrition Services that promotes and teaches healthy eating
2. Physical education that provides students with the skills to be
   active for life;
3. Healthy school environment which provides a safe environment
   for learning;
4. Health promotion for staff to keep our teachers healthy;
5. Psychological and Counseling services that focus on cognitive,
   emotional, behavioral and social needs of our students;
6. Health services that provide emergency and preventative services for our students;
7. Health education to provide classroom instruction on all healthy components; and,
8. Family and Community involvement of our partners and parents to maximize resources and expertise in supporting the health of our

Community partners take an active role in providing access to healthy activities and health information to our schools. For example, the
City of Santa Clara provides many opportunities to exercise and play through after-school activities, including the Youth Activity Center
located on the Cabrillo Middle School campus; the San Francisco 49ers provided a fully equipped exercise room at Buchser Middle
School; Kaiser Permanente, through the direct involvement of their doctors, provides health information at many of our schools. Over
thirty partners and community organizations were on display at the SCUSD Health Fair which was held at the Youth Activity Center last
January. The Health Fair provided parents an opportunity to learn about healthy life styles and eating choices and to talk to health care
providers. Healthy students make healthy learners.
