In the United States, some racial and ethnic populations suffer disproportionately from preventable diseases, many of which result from health-related behaviors established during childhood and adolescence. School programs that address risk behaviors among youth can help improve the health of populations at risk for these health disparities. Coordinated School Health Programs (CSHPs) are an effective way of accomplishing this goal. CSHPs focus on improving quality and increasing coordination, resulting in a planned, organized, and comprehensive set of courses, services, policies, and interventions that meet the health and safety needs of students in grades K–12.
