WHOLE COMMUNITY
                                                         WHOLE CHILD
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child, or WSCC framework, was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for addressing health in schools.  This framework expands the 8 components of the Coordinated Safe and Healthy Schools model and includes community health and social-emotional climate.  The WSCC framework was utilized when establishing Arcadia Unified School District's plan for coordinated safe and healthy schools

A coordinated approach to school health and safety improves students’ wellbeing, increases safety, and cultivates the capacity to learn through a collaborative focused effort of families, schools, and the community.  According to the California Department of Education and the Health Framework for California Public Schools, “coordinated school health is a schoolwide approach and commitment that supports and integrates eight components. These components work together to develop and reinforce health-related knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors and make health an important priority at school. The components are linked in a mutually supportive, cooperative system focusing on children's health issues and the development of health literacy. No single component will achieve the level of health students need to support academic achievement. A coordinated approach to school health improves students' health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, schools, and communities working together.”
