Coordinated School Health Plan

North Dakota is one of 22 states to have received a highly competitive 5 year grant to implement coordinated school health throughout the state and identify best practice and policy to assure student health and academic success. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has strict criteria to ensure appropriate fiscal accountability and goal implementation; to date, North Dakota has met all standards and criteria for the grant program.
